Answer: 
We used the tool in a sewing project that required precision and reliability. I believe it would be reliable for any cutting project like the tile you noted. It is tough construction and a sharp cutting edge. Speed of cutting would depend on tile thickness. I recommend the circle cutter because it is well made.

Answer: 
Keep in mind that the tool, while made of steel, is primarily a scratching device. Deep scratches are possible resulting in actually cutting through to make a circular opening in plastic or aluminum. Cutting wood is no problem unless you expect it to cleanly cut through more than 1/8 inch material. I am making an educated guess since I have not tried it myself. It comes down to how much effort you are Read More
Keep in mind that the tool, while made of steel, is primarily a scratching device. Deep scratches are possible resulting in actually cutting through to make a circular opening in plastic or aluminum. Cutting wood is no problem unless you expect it to cleanly cut through more than 1/8 inch material. I am making an educated guess since I have not tried it myself. It comes down to how much effort you are willing to devote and how thick is the wood involved in the job, what can be done. The spike (needle) point is small and will tolerate only so much force at the cutting point before failing. It isn't that expensive, buy it and give it a try. :-) Read Less

Answer: 
Having used ours for marking cloth, we cannot say with certainty, however it is quite strong and the supplied cutter seems sharp and capable of serous cutting.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great I bought it for some remodeling work on a home we bought to flip. It worked just fine and was fairly easy to set up and use. For the novice, it will not cut all the way thru the drywall, but it will score it well so that you can finish the job with a drywall saw. July 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tool works well easy to use, simple to set size of opening being cut. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Multipurpose circle scriber/cutter We were looking for a modest sewing tool that could be set to any diameter for marking or cutting cloth, and had about given up when looking at sewing stores. Then on a last minute thought, we looked at the tool section of HD. This unlikely looking tool was perfect. The sewing project of finished and we adapted the cutter head to hold a marking pen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good product does a nice job for cutting holes for ceiling boxes. No big gaps around the box. March 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not bad for the price - well built For less then 10 dollars how could you not get something like this? I even use it for wood working when I need to draw an ark or circle November 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works if you know what it is for... The review from Pete saying it only cuts 1/8" deep is right, but that is what it is intended to do. With drywall you only cut through the paper, score the gypsum and break the rest. A reviewer down the list correctly states the best way to use this tool is to score both sides then pop it with a mallet or your hand and you'll have a perfect hole. If you have to cut from one side only, you should plan on using this tool to cut as deep as you can to get a nice trim cut on the face of the drywall and then finish the cut with your knife or drywall keyhole saw. If you want to cut all the way through from the face, invest in a rotozip and the circle cutter to go with it. September 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Circle cutter Its a great tool I am a professional drywall installer I use it every day, does perfect circles no need for expensice drill pieces. February 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by worked well The items worked well for what I needed. The cutting wheel could be little larger for a faster cut time and overall better results, however, only cutting a few pieces its a great tool. February 17, 2015
