These tile and glass cutting pilers make the job of scribing and cutting glass or tile, quick and easy. The tool has an extra hard tungsten carbide scribing wheel. It also has a breaking "wing" which allows for a clean break in the glass and tile. Using the tool with light pressure will create clean glass and tile breaks.

1. Clamp the glass down to a flat surface with a piece of flat wood.
2. Use the wood as a straight edge and cut with the scoring portion of this tool.
3. Score firmly and decisively and don't re-score the glass thinking you are being thorough. That will only create uneven edges.
4. Use the clamp portion of this tool and it will snap the glass.
After using the Ansen nipper for like five minutes, I went out to my stained glass shop and got the one Goldblatt. It worked MUCH better for ceramic tile. The Ansen tile nipper is junk. Don't waste your money.
Trying to cut 12" ceramic tile with this thing was a waste of time. It's too cheap and the piece that puts pressure on the underside should be more wedge shaped. There's no way to slowly break along the crack, once you work your way up to enough pressure, it just snaps, generally chunking a corner off and spraying ceramic shrapnel everywhere. After that, since you no longer have an edge with tile on both sides of the score, you can no longer use the tool to keep going, so have to use a different method anyhow.
At maybe half the price I wouldn't be so bothered by purchasing a tool that doesn't work and is so poorly constructed. But as far as hand tools go, I've gotten many far superior tools for less than this piece of junk.
