Q:Can you cut vinyl tile flooring with a ceramic cutter?
by|May 8, 2021
4 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  This cutter is designed for floor and wall ceramic tile. Please view our current line of vinyl cutters at www.robertsconsolidated.com. Customer Care

by|May 10, 2021

    A:  I would think not. The tile cutter only scores the tile the it snaps along the score line with the pressure put on the tile. Vinyl is too soft.

    by|May 9, 2021

    A:  This cutter scores the tile so it can be broken. Vinyl needs to be cut with something like a box cutter.

    by|May 9, 2021

      A:  No, the blade isn't sharp.

        Q:can I cut angles
        by|Apr 18, 2018

        Answer This Question

        A:  The only way to cut angles is if the tiles are small enough to rotate to the angle you need.

        A:  Good question Tom. I have cut some angles with this unit and the key is to measure very well and when you "scribe" your tile scribe it very well as in numerous times. You won't be able to cut small pieces with angles, at least I haven't been able to yet, but for cutting say a 4" tile on a 45* angle yes it can be done as I said you must scribe it very well and take your time. I hope this answers your question. eyedaddy

                  A:  Probably not. It's made for ceramic and works well for that.

                  by|Aug 7, 2018

                    A:  Nope. Use utility knife and ruler for vinyl tiles, cut from the face side.

                        This tile cutter rips tiles effectively as long as you need the cut in a straight line across the entire width. Cannot do square or other complicated cuts - only basic straight cuts work. My tiles were 2x3 so the cuts worked great around the 1.5" to 2.5" range but always lead to cracking when out of this area. See picture for more explanation. I recommend using a wet tile saw for most use cases because you will almost always need the cuts that this saw cannot handle.

                        Great Cutter for the price. Not sure why so many on here are giving this cutter a bad review and saying it is junk and does not work, this tool worked perfectly for me without fail. I was using to cut 1/4" thick 6"x 3" Porcelain Subway Tiles. It's Possible others were trying to cut tile thicker than the 1/2" max.

                          I bought this item a few days ago to prepare for my first tile laying experience (100 sf room). I ruined a couple of tiles trying to figure out how to work the thing. Then by using a screwdriver I removed the little "pressure bar" that dangles behind the scoring wheel and it started working like a champ. Just apply light to medium pressure and make approximately five passes over the desired cut line and let the excess tile fall off into the fixture.

                            When I buy something I expect it to work as advertised and if it does, rarely leave a review. It does what it's expected to do, nothing more needs to be said... I'll admit, never used a tile cutter before, never did any tile work for that matter and after reading a few of the reviews on here was a little skeptical ... I cut about 50 tiles last night in a couple hours, broke 3 - all my fault - simply trying different 'ways' of cutting... Each cut was precise and dead on the mark. Anyone leaving less than a perfect review needs to stick with paper and scissors (and supervised at that). All in all a 6 out of 5 in performance and a 6 out of 5 for cost savings.... Attached is an image of the corner section - you can see the precision by looking at the edges at the walls and where the smallest tile had to be cut, 9.5 x 6, this resulted in less than a 2.5" cut having to be made - sweeeet! And for those that want to complain the tiles don't line up in the image ... The tiles are from 3 different lots and 3 different sizes - all of which will be covered by cabinets, the part of the floor you see IS impressive and from a newbie at tile cutting! Off my soap box, time to put on the wet suit and try out the wet saw!

                              The tile cutter worked well on my small subway tile project. It does not cut tile less than half inch off the end though. If you have those cuts to do you will need a wet saw. Luckily I had figured layout so that I would not have to make short cuts.

                              This is a good product that will do the job without dropping alot of money. I would love to have a tile saw but dont want to drop the cash. This will cut glass and stone tils fairly easily, however, I did need to file down the edges to ensure no cuts during install. Still worth the price.

                              For the price, you can't beat how much this tool helps with cutting tile. I work the regular 8-5 shift so using a wet saw wouldn't make my neighbors happy during the night. Just get the feel on how much pressure to apply for scoring the tile before pressing down to snap it. One thing I did notice is when I press down on the surface area that applies pressure to the tile to snap it between the scored lines. It has left a mark on the tile, I just put a piece of paper towel between the tile and surface area to prevent that.

                                I researched the QEP 10214Q 14 in. Rip Ceramic Tile Cutter with 1/2 in. Cutting Wheel tile cutter on Amazon, which is nearly the exact same design and size as the HDX, but a little more expensive. I didn't want to go through the process of potentially having to return the QEP cutter if it did not cut my glass tiles correctly, so I went with the HDX from my local Home Depot. This tile cutter did an AMAZING job on the little mosaic glass tiles (~1" x 3" mesh backed) I was using for a coffee table refinishing project. As long as you remember you are working with glass and use light pressure to score and snap the tiles, the results will always be 100% accurate without crushing or shattering the tiles. The only issue I encountered was that the breaker bar hung awkwardly in the way and I had to manually hold it up while scoring these extremely small tiles. On a larger tile, I am sure it would just glide over the surface. A suggestion to the manufacturer would be to improve the breaker bar design with a spring loaded catch that would hold it up in place until needed. Otherwise, this cutter is super easy to use and well worth the money spent! Great tool!

                                  Broke after ripping 2 tiles
                                  This product is garbage, at least for 3/8" thick ceramic tile. The marking edge causes small chips in the clear top layer of the tile. The lever itself i semi-useful - only for the ripping. If you attempt to break the tile in 2, the metal bars that run across the top just bend upward applying no pressure to the tile. My first break i was able to just hit one side of the tile hard enough for it to go. The second cut was of a partial piece and i could not get the leverage to break in the same manner as the first. I used the handle and "Y" to attempt to make the break. The tile split into quarters instead of half and the plastic "Y" broke off completely. Refund, here I come.

                                  I bought this to cut glass tiles even after the HD Associate told me I would need a wet saw with a diamond blade(upwards of $200). I read online that this would work. I am happy I bought it! it was so easy to cut the glass without any chipping or breaking. This was for a backsplash in my kitchen.
