Vitrex Manual Tile Cutter 400mm
Flimsy tile cutter
The cutter is really weak so flexes when you put pressure on it to snap the tiles. Managed to break more tiles than it actually cut.
Ended up having to return it after a couple of days.
I would recommend that screwfix remove this item from their catalogue.
If you must buy a tile cutter pay a little extra and get a better product.

Bought this to cut some 200 x 250 6mm wall tiles. With no instructions in the box, I'm not sure there are any, I broke the first three tiles I needed.
The whole thing flexes alarmingly and as soon you press down to break that exactly what happens except you have 6/7/8 pieces instead of 2.
I would take it back if I hadn't used it, but I have. So I might as well have put Â£20 in the bin!!
Perhaps I doing something wrong. I'll try and source some new cutters for my old cutter, 30 years old but won't score.

does what it says
I bought this because my old one was too small so looked around and found this. A very reasonable price I thought, to cut large tiles.
It took one broken tile to get the hang of it and I can now confidently cut my tiles to any size quickly and cleanly. One thing to note is it's light weight and does bend in the middle so when pressing down on the tile after scoring it press on the edge of the tile. Overall very happy with my purchase.

Does the job
It's not a rubi but for Â£20 it does the job ,idea for anyone who needs the odd 400mm cut but doesn't want to spend a fortune ,not the cleanest cut but a quick file and job done.
