Discuss Recommended cutter for 1200mm porcelain in the Tiling Forum area at TilersForums.co.uk.
try to put the biggest cut of the tile on the left
Yeah that’s what I was doing.. the sales rep showed me how to use it. I’ve just managed to break off the corner of the piece I wanted but I can use the remaining part if I can get the rest off which is fine.
Anyone know if these particular tiles are harder than normal? (Is aware that may be a stupid question but I feel pretty stupid right now so what can you do)
Did that and same thing, just snapping off the corner of the tile
Make sure your score has a good sound to it and try and level the tile up a bit with a packet of some discription at the far corner which is tilting down. Keep the larger side of the tile to the left as Antonio says. Once scored gently apply pressure with the breaker about 15/20mm back from the top end of the tile until you hear the glaze break a little and no more, then bring the handle back to the bar end and at 15/20mm back from the edge apply the handle so it’s firm then give a quick tap to snap the tile.
You need to set both ends of Sigma to thickness of tile plus around 5mm
There aren’t any measuring lines so it’s kinda hard to gauge what that is?
There is a Mark on the handle for bar setting . Look in the brochure to see it .
Are we making the assumption he is right handed
On 1200 tiles I break first at bar end then at far end. I use pressure rather than a sudden snapping action but both methods should break it just fine
If all fails break them over your knee
Or buy the rubi tz
What about using a wet saw?
The problem is you need 18 people to carry the Rubi
Trying to turn on the customers staircase with my Rubi TX1200 in the box lol
Lol, had a TX700 once and that was bad enough!
