Rated 3 out of 5 by Not quite perfectly formed Perhaps I've been unlucky but the end plate is not at 90° to the cutter so it's a bit of a faff to have to manually line up straightforward cuts. The cutting wheel it's supplied with is the smallest one they do (well it would be wouldn't it) and the 1st tiles I cut were right on it's limit and slightly textured resulting in quite a bit of chipping at the side of the cutting line. I will buy another larger wheel but it's a bit frustrating. Also the way it's designed you have to check where the cutting wheel is before your bear down to split the tile as it can creep back and catch the front edge causing chipping. You probably get what you pay for if you're a professional tiler (I'm not - only once in a while) then another more expensive type would probably be better 30 Jan 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by entry level Looked at a lot of reviews and compared a lot of prices before finally choosing this cutter. Was expensive and more than I wanted to spend but needed a cutter that was going to do the job. On opening the box box my first impressions were that it was smaller than expected, very plasticky and didn't really feel good quality. However, I trusted the reviews and the brand and tried to do the job in hand. I had some 600 x 900 ceramic floor tiles to cut which this cutter should have done with ease. Not a chance. Very hard to score, had to use way too much pressure and literally put all my weight on it to snap the tile. The results were awful. Chipped all the edges of expensive floor tiles. The finish was horrible. Top marks to screwfix customer services. After a quick phonecall they recommended a replacement and it was ready to pick up in store in 5 minutes. Can't say fairer than that. I opted to pay the extra £25 for the big clinker 2 and it is worth it's weight in gold. I will write a separate reviews but it beats this one hands down for not much more money. So much better quality and cuts my tiles with ease. Thank's screwfixit. Would have been gutted to be stuck with this expensive useless cutter. 28 Jan 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rubi star 50N tile cutter Excellent bit of kit. Easy to use and very strong, which is protected from damage by a tough plastic case. Rubi star 50N is the bees knees 18 Nov 2015
