Ceramic Tile Cutters – A Simple Guide

This topic that discusses the ceramic flooring and the ceramic tile cutters might not be of interest to everybody because this is not a job that is done by all. We have some specialists doing this job for us and our house and hence we stay at a distance to just have a look at it.

The part of ceramic flooring that is a little tricky is the tile cutting. This is because there are all possibilities for a damage when cut improperly and this might spoil the whole look of it making its installation difficult, time-taking, and ugly. But this is definitely not a difficult task as you might think if you hold the hands of a professional for this purpose

This guide to ceramic tile cutters would elaborate on the use of the snap tile cutters for your ceramic floors.

  • Set the tile properly that is to be cut and shaped under the cutter at the right angle so that you get the desired shape and size. For this, you need to first place it against the top edge of the cutting tool.
  • For getting the perfect cuts with smooth and proper finishes, you need to move the tile face under the tungsten carbide scoring wheel. If this is not done properly you might end up having shaped ceramic tile but with unfinished and hap hazard cuts and edges.
  • Now once this is done, the next step is the final step. Here you need to drop the handle with full pressure on the center of the tile so that it is cut properly. Pressure is to be given gently and firmly so that the tile stays in the same place without moving an inch from its position resulting in exact cuts. The end result is a cleanly cut tile into beautifully and appropriately finished pieces.
