Vitrex Manual Tile Cutter 330mm
Used this in re-tiling bathroom. Easy to use and consistently good results. Would recommend and good value.

Basic tile cutter
Really struggled with this at first and have had several similar items before. The whole thing was stiff and clumsy until i just ever so slightly slackened the cutting wheel raise / lower pivot bolt which transformed it into a free running user friendly bit of kit. The tile breaker part is going to be removed as it makes it awkward and tends not to break as efficiently as using your hands.
In essence for under Â£11 its a good bit of kit (now)

Good for standard 5mm tiles
For the easy task of cutting 150x150mm size, 5mm thick tiles this tool worked very well.
I do also have a wet cut diamond blade tile saw, but for small easy-to-cut tiles this tile cutter was better because it's cleaner, faster, quieter, more portable and doesn't require any mains supply.
Though normally it can't cut widths less than 3cm, in fact by placing a screwdriver under the head, on the tile's short side, I could snap down to nearly 1cm widths.

Not up to anything
This ruined many tiles and so have got a power cutter with diamond wheel, wish I had done that in the first place. Really flimsy construction with a cutting wheel that cannot cut a straight line
