Answer: 
The item is scored, I used a glass cutter. Then the score is placed in the "V" and press handles together. You want to make sure your over a table or work surface where the tile or glass wont fall far.

Answer: 
The little wheel at the top of the cutter is what you use to score the tile. Press the wheel down on your tile and pull it across your tile to score your tile. Score your tile on the glazed side, not the back side. Once you have scored your tile take the cutter and grasp your tile with the pivoting jaws at a right angle across your score line, then gently keep applying pressure until the tile snaps along Read More
The little wheel at the top of the cutter is what you use to score the tile. Press the wheel down on your tile and pull it across your tile to score your tile. Score your tile on the glazed side, not the back side. Once you have scored your tile take the cutter and grasp your tile with the pivoting jaws at a right angle across your score line, then gently keep applying pressure until the tile snaps along your score line. If it does not snap easily you may have to apply more pressure when you are using the scoring wheel, a straight edge guide will help you keep your line straight. Once you have snapped your tile be careful of the cut edge it can be very sharp sometimes. Read Less

Answer: 
I should have asked a Home Depot employee before I left, because I had the same trouble. You basically use it to make a line where you want the tile to be split, and then you put the tile in the "pliers" and when you press, it splits all the way across where you scored it.
To score it, you flip it over and use the little metal wheel. You run that back and forth over the tile quite a few times, until you Read More

To score it, you flip it over and use the little metal wheel. You run that back and forth over the tile quite a few times, until you get a nice groove exactly where you want it. Then, you put the tile in the pliers part (with the scored line running up and down the middle) and then press. The tile should split in half on the scoring line. Read Less

Answer: 
To get a truly straight score-line I suggest creating a fixture that will hold the tile in place and allow for a ruler to be securely seated where you want to cut the tile. I used some scrap pieces of wood screwed onto some scrap-plywood; a piece of wood held the tile in place and two more pieces at either end gave me a stop for my straight edge. Once you're set up take the tool and place the cutting Read More
To get a truly straight score-line I suggest creating a fixture that will hold the tile in place and allow for a ruler to be securely seated where you want to cut the tile. I used some scrap pieces of wood screwed onto some scrap-plywood; a piece of wood held the tile in place and two more pieces at either end gave me a stop for my straight edge. Once you're set up take the tool and place the cutting wheel on the tile, up against the ruler or straight edge. Using a good amount of pressure, press down on the tool and move it along the ruler. This causes the cutting wheel to make a small line in the tile where you want it cut (a score-line). After a couple passes you can take the tile, place it with the score line centered in, and facing the plastic 'V', and squeeze the handles until the tile snaps along the score line. If the edge is rough you can sand it down with an abrasive tile-stone. Expect to make a couple mistakes, so it's best to have extra tile on which to practice. Good luck! Read Less

When using this hand-held tile cutter on smaller tiles, particularly wall tiles, use a ruler to guide the cutting wheel in a straight line during the scoring process. Once the tile is scored, place the tile in the tool with the breaker bar on top and squeeze gently. The tile will break at the score line. Check to make certain that the score line is smooth and without gaps, and remember to score Read More

Once the tile is scored, place the tile in the tool with the breaker bar on top and squeeze gently. The tile will break at the score line. Check to make certain that the score line is smooth and without gaps, and remember to score only once.

Answer: 
Yes, since mirrors are just glass with reflective paint on the back. I would make sure that the rubber pads on the tool will not scratch the reflective paint off of the back first. If it there is a possibility that it will, a piece of soft cloth between the rubber and the reflective paint should prevent any damage. You will of course, have to score the glass side, NOT the reflective paint side.

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Glass Cutter I use this tool for glass cutting. I am a novice, so I like the fact that this tool makes it extremely easy to break the glass along the score line without having to use my hands or tap it with a conventional glass cutter handle. I ground the "anvil" down to get a sharper point. (Please see photo.) - ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WHEN CUTTING GLASS! April 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Cutter Decent cutter for the $$$. Making a good score is key to a clean cut. August 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good for cutting small mosaic tile I used this tile cutter to cut octagon and dot tile I installed in my half bath. As other reviewers have mentioned, when scoring the tile you have to push with some force, but if done properly, the tile will snap right along the score line. This cutter works very well when there is an even amount of tile on both sides of the rubber "snapper", but doesn't work so well otherwise. For example, this tool did a very good job cutting the octagon pieces in half, or close to in half, but did poorly at making cuts close to or less than a third of the tile. However, based on the basic principle of this tool, that's to be expected, since it expects equal amounts of force on either side of the score line to snap the tile properly. Overall, at around $8, I think this is a great value, making is so I only had to use my wet saw on < 10 pieces of octagons with ~40sqft installed. July 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap and not well made It broke the first pass over the first tile. Another Home Depot special. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Useful it is very easy to use for cutting replacement tiles. July 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not for Porcelain tile The cutting wheel worked fine for scoring the 12"x24" porcelain tile (12" cut to shorten the length)... But the first attempt at snapping the tile, the plastic bar that presses down each side immediately broke before even breaking the tile at the score. Not good at all for porcelain, but should work fine for ceramic. I had to place my porcelain tile on an uneven surface and step on both sides in order to get it to break. I've researched other cutters like this that have metal pieces to snap tile rather than the plastic on this one, which that would obviously solve the problem of the tool breaking on me. March 19, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Challenging I found this tool very challenging when it came to clean cutting. May 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't trust reviews! This worked better than anything else! So after reading all the reviews about this tool breaking, I went and purchased a tile nipper for $20, a glass nipper (the one with two rollers) for $13, and a stone sanding block for $8. I began my project of installing glass mosaic tile. Both tools made the glass chip so bad, I had to buff them out and still wasn't perfect. It was time consuming and made a mess. Halfway through, I decided to go back to home depot and get this tool. OMG it's amazing!!!! As long as you score each piece in a straight line with pressure, you'll get near perfect cuts. The tool is cheap so if you're worried about it breaking (which it did not for me), buy two. Here is a photo of what took me literally 1 minute to cut 6 pieces. A MUST FOR MOSAIC GLASS TILES.
