Rated 5 out of 5Â by Johnny2Hammers Realy great cutter
This Is the first cutter I have ever bought and wanted a good one. The cutter is great, cuts nice clean cuts every time and the handle, arms and layout gave me lots of control. With a little carful holding I managed to cut some awkward angles too.
Disappointed over the plastic stop though! It does bend a little so you have to be careful and not rely on it as a third hand.
The case is very tough and protects the cutter well. It came with a desiccant pack which was a nice touch.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bazzil Rubi Star 40-N Plus Tile Cutte
Had to replace a tile cutter due to it wearing on the runners. Thought it would be worth spending the extra to go for a well known brand rather than a DIY item, that I had purchased before. It cuts in a straight line, very easy to use. Need to keep the handle tight to stop the cutter falling out.

Had to replace a tile cutter that I had due to it wearing on the runners. I do not do that much tiling but thought it would be worth spending the extra to go for a well known brand rather than a "shed" item that I haad purchased before. It cuts in a straight line, feels robust and the carry case is very welcome. Down sides, measuring bar still a bit flimsy and as said in another review, you have to make sure the handle is kept screwed in tightly.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by restoman waste of time, get a saw
I've always used a wet wheel tile saw but wanted to try a manual type cutter. I thought it may prove quicker, less messy and more convenient where it may be awkward to set up a saw.
After several attempts using this I decided to return it. The cuts just weren't good enough for a decent finish and the last thing I want to do is spend ages filing edges or nibbling a tile to make a shape.
Seems to increase wastage quite a bit too and there's no way you can cut anything other than a straight line.
A tile saw is much better and you can pick one up for less than this.
The positives are that it has a handy carry case, seems fairly robust and looks to have a good build quality. Overall I would say save a few quid and buy a cheap tile saw, you'll be able to do anything with it.
