Answer: 
This tool operates by hand strength. Place your tile on the tool in the amount you wish to cut. Then you press the lever with a firm downward thrust. Your tile should break with a straight edge.

Answer: 
Lay a piece of tile in. Score it with the cutting wheel on the line where you want to cut and lower the handle until it snaps in two. You may have to score it 2-3 times to be sure before you lower the handle.

Answer: 
There are directions on the side of the box. Once you have measured the area that you need cut, you would lay it on the tile cutter to line up with arrow on the cutter. Then you would slide the cutter in an upwards motion until you reach the top of the tile. Once you reach the top of the tile slide the handle to the middle so that the bar is flat on the tile and press firmly. Here's a YouTube video for a Read More

Answer: 
Manual tile cutters are relatively easy to use: after carefully measuring and marking your tile where you want the cut, line up the mark you made with the cutting area (it's likely marked with an arrow or red line), score the tile by pushing the handle across the surface of the tile from closest to you to away from you (the small wheel scrapes across the tile surface), then resting the breaker foot at Read More
Manual tile cutters are relatively easy to use: after carefully measuring and marking your tile where you want the cut, line up the mark you made with the cutting area (it's likely marked with an arrow or red line), score the tile by pushing the handle across the surface of the tile from closest to you to away from you (the small wheel scrapes across the tile surface), then resting the breaker foot at the top of the tile and pressing down with the arm. The tile should break cleanly where you measured, marked, and scored. Note: some tiles may require multiple scores and some tiles may be too thick.

14 in. Rip Ceramic Tile Cutter is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Thought It Was Junk But.... While doing a budget tiling job on my shower I found this tool at a bargain price. The first 10 cuts or so went as expected with a few broken 12" tiles do to a learning curve, but then it started breaking every tile even after trying multiple scores. After searching for a better unit and thinking that either the scoring wheel had dulled or the frame was bent I came across an article saying the scoring wheels sometimes stick and to use WD40. Well, mine was sticking and a little WD40 was definitely the cure. So if your tile cutter starts breaking tiles in strange patterns make certain you check the scoring wheel for easy rotation, it can save you loads of headaches!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Simple tool, but maybe better for small tile I purchased this tile cutter for cutting 12" x 12" porcelain floor tiles. I successfully cut the first tile right on the scored line, but I wasted many more tiles trying to repeat the process. After the first tile, I could not get a straight cut. When I attempted to snap the tile, the cut line typically deviated from the score line at least half way across the tile. Maybe this tool would work better for smaller tiles. For my project, I returned this tile cutter and instead rented a tile saw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed with first tile My older tile cutter finally gave out, but I needed to cut only two 12" tiles, so I thought I'd go with the inexpensive option. It did not cut the first tile. The base is too flimsy to support cutting, and bends upwards at the ends. It appeared to be made of a synthetic, rather than metal material.I had a scored tile but no cut. I returned for a refund. Ended up using a diamond Dremel blade to cut the two tiles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Under designed This thing is too lightweight to work correctly. I'm only cutting 6" tiles and after scoring I go to snap the tile and the whole base will flex to the point that I can't get the tile to snap. Planning to return this and buy one with a better base.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke first time used! We used it for cutting ceramic backsplash for our kitchen.. Worked well until the 3rd tile we cut then it broke! Not worth buying. I would recommend renting or putting your money into a wet saw.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was not effective for my specific need Having just one ceramic floor tile to cut I figured this would be a cheap solution. I needed to cut a tile in an "L" shape to fit around a corner. I was skeptical that it could do this so I asked a store employee if it could do this, and was told yes. There were no detailed instructions in the box, just the basic usage instructions on the box - insufficient for a total tile cutting dummy. I figured out sort of how to use it, the pusher part that's supposed to break the tile after scoring was in the way while scoring. After I'd scored the two sides of the inside of the "L" and I tried to snap out the piece the tile broke into three pieces (this is what I'd thought would happen). I was able to use the pieces anyway but that means I now have an extra grout line which is what I was trying to avoid having. So yes, it does cut the tile OK with some effort, but did not do what the store employee assured me it could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for me I bought this to use on a glass tile project. I was a little worried because it was priced quite a bit lower than the other cutters. This is probably not quite professional grade but should be fine for occasional projects. It's solidly built and cut the glass tile straight and clean. It's a little hard lining up the cutter exactly on your cut line. I have not tried it on any other tile. I suspect it would be fine for ceramic, maybe not porcelain. Keep in mind that this will handle 12" max tile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the money, a great little gadget. I only needed to cut 8 ceramic floor tiles, so renting a wet saw was overkill. I may lay tile in the future, is I figured spending $20 for a tool I would keep was reasonable. Ready to go out of the box, the unit is sturdier than I thought it would be. I've never cut tiles before, but it was super easy. I ruined 2 tiles and was ready to curse the tool, but realized that after each cut, there are small pieces of ceramic that stay on the cutting area. Wiping it down after each cut and making sure the bridge under the tile (where it will snap after scoring) prevented any further mishaps. I would definitely recommend this.
