    I have 88 or so 300 x 1200 x 20 porcelain tiles to cut and looking for a Rubi or similar wet cutter for hire. Only found one at the other end of the country and it is £220+VAT just to get it shipped

    I've tried all the hire places I can think of. Welcome any suggestions. Many thanks. Richard

    Maybe buy one and then sell it when you finish with it?

    Thanks both. There are quite a few cuts to do and I'm looking for accurate cuts so not sure a grinder would work. Considering buying a second-hand one if I can, but really stuck so welcome further help

    If you could get to a position where these cuts can be done at once consider water cutting . Job I was on was getting 1200 x600 cut down to 1000x500 for £5 a tile
