Customer Questions & Answers

will tile nippers score tile

Asked by: cutter
No, they just break the tile (approximately) at the nip-point. You want a hand tile cutter to score tiles.

How do you use this tile nipper as oppose to using the hand held tile cutter?? Can you show a video??
Asked by: Samara
The hand tile cutter is used to score (scratch) a line into the face of a tile. The tile is then snapped along this line. This "nipper" is used to literally nip the corner or edge of a tile. The tile cutter would be used to cut across the whole face of a tile (e.g. cutting it in half) while the nipper is used to remove a corner or cut a very small tile in half. Be aware that nipping a tile is not precise work and will result in a rough edge, which is no problem if the edge will be covered by trim. I found that even a cheap wet saw (tile saw) is far easier and more precise for long cuts - worth it if you're tiling a whole room, but the nipper is a cheap and handy addition for a few tight spots.

They do exactly what their supposed to do. It is the cheaper nipper but I can't see the difference between the two. They both do what their supposed to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economical and functional I bought these to nip some 1" hex tiles on the edges. They do require some grip strength to make a cut. If that's an issue for you, a compound nipper may be a better choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy tool! Used on small tiles and cut away sections that the 14" manual tile cutter couldn't get to without potentially harming the tile. This tool was pretty handy and somewhat precise. Just apply some pressure and you are golden. Use a stone filer if needed to round out any rough edges.
