Customer Questions & Answers

Can I cut in a circle?

Asked by: Joseph
Not with this. It is basically a small scoring tool and can shard your tile whether you're careful or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Nippers Used these to make some notches around door jams and such, did the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I used this to cut the individual stone pieces on a mosaic stone backsplash. It snapped the stone easily. Occasionally, I would have the stone pieces break, but this was due more to the nature and integrity of the stone than the tool. It's time consuming, and repeated use can cause muscle strain in the hand and wrist, so it's best to take your time and/or share the nipping duties with someone. That said, I tried this tool, another "score and snap" style hand tool, and a wet/dry tile cutting saw, and this worked the best of the three - by far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable & Effective I had never used tile nippers before, but a current DIY project made them necessary - and I am very happy with having chosen this compound nipper by QEP. The grip is very comfortable, and the tips made very quick work of the detailed cuts I needed to make. In my project, I am using porcelain tile that is approximately 3/8" thick, and I believe this tool would effectively handle thicker tiles based on the use I experienced and the end results. One feature I do like about these nippers is the locking mechanism. I appreciate being able to keep them in a closed position when not in use. Very sturdy, durable design and ease of use, even for a complete novice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid This is a solid set of nippers. I've used it on ceramic floor tile and it comes in handy to get the right fit on some of the odd shapes you may encounter. (Particularly around the bath tub and toilet flange). It took a little bit to get used to as far as how much you can snip at a time. Best advice is go slow and take a little bit at a time. If you try to do too much at once you likely won't get the cut you wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compund Ceramic Tile Nippers worked Real well 1, Overall Rating - They worked very well - the compound part really helped over the other styles. 2, Appearance - They look strong like they will last. 3. Installation - They helped with trimming tiles I didnt have to get out a grinder. 4. Quality - They are a good solid tool that looks like it will last and wont break. because of them being compound I could take real small pieces off with better control. 5. Value - They were a bit high priced but I guess that is what you have to pay now a days for a good solid tool. Tip - Wear safety goggles or glasses there were tiny chips of tile flying all over.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not What I Expected I have been using a simple spring-loaded tile nipper for a long time, and thought that a compound nipper would be easier to use since it should reduce the amount of force required to cut tile with a squeeze of the hand. Unfortunately this product does not quite do it for me. The amount of hand pressure needed to cut tile with these nippers is comparable to the non-compound nippers I presently use. The handle has a nice rubber grip, but does not noticeably improve the job of nipping tile.
