Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mdough79 DONT BUY THE QEP TILE CUTTER!
Today is 3/20/11 and I just bought the 20 in QEP tile cutter and returned it after 3 tiles. THIS IS POORLY BUILT. Where do I begin? The steel frame and sliding rods are extremely flimsy. They bend with extreme ease (they are not supposed to bend!) When they bend they take away from the downward pressure and promotes uneven pressure on the tile which leads to many broken tiles. 2) The scoring wheel goes dull after just a few tiles. I exchanged this for the 20 in Brutus and this thing is amazing. Its very strong, wont bend. You can tell just by handling this cutter that it was much better. Tiles cut with ease and precision! Even the rubber mat is better quality. SPEND THE EXTRA TO GET THE BRUTUS

Had to finish a project late at night and didn't want to disturb the neighbors with the wet saw so I bought this cutter today. I couldn't even cut a single tile with it. The scoring wheel is too weak and the rails are flimsy. It might work for thin ceramic tiles but definitely not for porcelain. Don't waste your money on this garbage. QEP makes high end cutters but HD doesn't carry them and they also run over a couple of hundred bucks so unless your needs offset the cost of a good cutter, you might want to consider renting a saw for the job. I will return it tomorrow.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tileguy good tool overall for the money
using it to cut ceramic tile, cuts clean and tile snap easily. Used for cutting 16x10" tiles for bath remodel. Not making any claims for Porcelain but looks like it can do the job.

Tried to cut 18X18 porcelain tiles. First two were fine, third was passable. By the fourth cut, instead of snapping on the scored line, it snapped everywhere else. I sensed the handle wasn't supplying enough pressure at the start of a score, but there's no way to adjust it. After it ruined two tiles, took it back. I wasn't willing to pay for even more replacement tile. Waste of effort, time, money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AlexeiOst Very poor quality
The quality of the product is very-very poor:
- the base bands
- the rails also band; In fact, because of that in one place the cutter does not slide any more and gets stuck
- the wheel of the cutter gets loose all the time, so the cut tends to slide to the left or to the right all the time
- also, small pieces cannot be cut with this tool: the breaker bar will break the time in another place (tried 5 times until I finally gave up).
I believe I named pretty much every part of the tool and there is something wrong with it!
I will never buy another product by this company.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wolf Spend the extra money to get a cutter that makes clean cuts
Very aggravating. I've been in the construction trades for 15 years and know that a cheap or the wrong tool versus a quality product can make that difference between a great finish and a hack job. This tool doesn't make clean cuts, it breaks tiles if the cut is less than 2 inches from the edge, the slide needed WD40 or it wouldn't work. My 30 dollars would have been better spent towards an upgrade. I should have known better.

What a mess. Couldn't get a real cut for the life of me. Wanted to hit myself in the head with a hammer after. So save the time and hit your head first. Spend the money on a real saw.
