With only a few reviews I was concerned this breaker simply hadnt been put through its paces but trusting Amazon's return policy I decided this would be my choice. From my first practice cuts(recommended by everyone) I was able to acheive clean straight breaks in my porcelain floor tile. Even 1/2" pieces broke even and clean. It is extremely simple to use. I cut the 12 edge tiles in less than 10 minutes!
This breaker cost less than the Wet Saws all my friends pushed me towards, less than the professional tools with the strongest reviews, and even less than the more expensive breakers at the Box Stores. So this is a Win-Win-Win in my book. The fact that it was so simple and produced such great results, I am now confident enough to replace the linoleum in my kitchen.(something I had begrudgingly decided to hire a professional to complete) So I will certainly get my money out of this purchase and you will too.
Amazon has a great price on the cutter and, with Prime,no shipping to boot!
my suspicion is that the tool was flexing too much to give a straight snap on a 18 inch tile
I suspect on tiles 8 inch or less, it would work well, as the cut seemed to wander towards the end of the cut.
Interestingly, I found the ball bearings in this tool less smooth than the other cutter and the tile guide does not line up flat with the tile rendering the guide extension useless. I bought the tool to cut tiles however and it does that very well. It has a much bigger cutting wheel and less give in the two steel rails. I think the bigger cutting wheel helps and maybe the cutting ridge is better also. I just use a ruler to set the tile up and then tighten up the guide. You only need a small portion of the guide to butt up against so you can ignore the guide extension. I took off a star for the guide but I'm very happy that I can now cut tiles correctly every time with this tool. I'm hanging on to it! It also has a spare wheel in the handle. It has saved me a lot of time and money.
I was not impressed with the guides for measuring cuts and angles, I found myself measuring and marking the tiles and holding them in place manually rather than use the guides. The ball bearing slides live up to the claim of "smooth scoring", (though there is a learning curve), and the rubber base does keep the tile in place nicely. I have not owned or used any similar tool so I have nothing to compare it to... but I'm very happy with it.
Very difficult to get a clean, straight cut. Actually, it's a complete shot in the dark.
Have tried numerous set-ups, made a plywood base for it, cursed it enough to make a sailor blush - none of those attempts have worked. Thought maybe throwing it would improve its performance - changed my mind at the last second after recalling what happened to a Poulon chainsaw I tried to motivate in the same way, that option is still on the table though.
It may work better with ceramic products, but we rarely set anything other than porcelain.
Thought it would be a time saver rather than going outside to use a wet saw, I was wrong. That said, should have spent more for a better one. Live and learn.
So, can't recommend this tool for professional use. A homeowner with patience and plenty of product to spare - go for it.
