How do I know how far to insert scoring wheel? This really should include basic instructions! Online description says "Interchangeable scoring wheels from 1/4 in. to 3/8 in."--what does this mean? I have 3/8" thick tiles, does that mean that I need to buy a 3/8" scoring wheel?
Asked by: SN
How i set my blade is when i put the tile on the table . I move the handle to the hight i like, then i tighten the my hand. So the handle is not to high or to low. Very easy. Just find the best stop for you.

Does it cut porcelain or stone tiles?
Asked by: Rob
Hi Rob, thank you for your interest in Rubi Tools. The cutter will cut porcelain, but not stone. You will need a wet saw for stone tile. We would recommend the Rubi ND-180 Smart or the DU-200 EVO for most tile carried at Home Depot. We also have wet saws that will cut 3, 4, and 5 foot tile if you are going really large. Thanks you for your question and have a great day!

26 in. Star Max Tile Cutter is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 37.

This 26 inch Rubi Star Tile Cutter is constructed using a combination of durable plastic and metal parts appropriately chosen for the specific use in the device. The cutting bed has strips of heavy textured rubber foam along both sides of the breaking ridge which helps hold the tile in place while scoring and breaking. It has swing out plastic stabilizers to help stabilize both the machine and larger tiles. An adjustable plastic square guide that locks in place is useful for measuring and positioning tiles. It is particularly useful for repeated cuts .The provided scoring wheel works well and the breaker arch works effectively. The tool can make straight cuts up to 26 inches long, cut 18 inch square tiles at 45 degrees and tile up to ½ inch thick. The machine comes with no instructions or user tips but is not real hard to figure out. I made clean smooth cuts from first use. It is a lot faster and less messy than a wet saw. It will not completely replace the saw for intricate cuts but for straight cuts it works great.

While I don't need the 26" capability for this project, it's always nice to have larger capability for future projects. Also, for 45 degree / diagonal cuts the cutter needs to be 1.5 times the size of the tile width. The cutter didn't come with any instructions, but it's easy enough to figure out how to assemble it. It took me a few tiles until I figured out how to best cut them, since then the cutter works flawless.

It comes with ¼ scoring wheel and you can purchase 3/8 in scoring wheel they interchangeable. It has folding side arms to help increase the support area for large format tiles. It has a Lateral stop with 45 square. Here are some down side of this unit. No instructions. They have pictures on the side of the box and the sequence how to cut but it does not show you how setup the scoring wheel. I did find some YouTube videos on this make and model. Here is YouTube site: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=53&v=Zpsw1cgD0QU I have a project coming up but I had old tile I want to try out first. I got a couple of straight cuts but most of them did not follow the scored line. I tried putting more pressure on the scoring but it did not seem to work. I did not have any smooth tile only uneven surfaces. It was hard to get a score at the end since the tile tapper off. See below for pictures of the results. I guess you have to practice more but I want to waste a lot of tile to get a straight cut. The results, I think I am sticking with wet saw tile cutter.

Some of the tile is 12x24 & others 13x13. The tile has texture on the surface. The cutter (which you can't see on the box pictures) is very small, 1/4" or less in diameter. It doesn't push very well on textured tiles. In fact, it is very difficult to do. I am also guessing that because of the small diameter, the cutter won't last a long time. I made a dozen cuts & realized it wasn't for me. I will be returning it. I went to a tile distributor & bought a more commercial on that has a much larger cutter & it works pretty well. Of course it is a fair amount more expensive. If you just have a small job & are using smooth tile, it would probably work just fine. But I have quite a bit of tile to do & it is all textured, so I wanted something a little better.

The only reason I gave it 3-stars is because it does not come with any instructions! It's not that hard to figure out how it goes together, however, instructions would have been nice. Also some user tips would have been a huge plus. This Star Max cutter is very light and is very good for cutting glass, ceramic and porcelain tiles. The cutter will cut tiles up to 1/2" thick. It also has a stop so you can make a precise 45 degree cut. The cutter is made of aluminum and only weights about 10 1/2 pounds. It folds up to a compact size of 6" x 34" which makes for easy transport and storage. The max tile size you can cut on a diagonal is 18" and the max tile size you can rip is 26".

It has an easily replaceable cutter wheel that comes with the tool. The cutter wheel is inserted trough the opening in the top of the slide and is secured by tightening the push handle. It has guides for 90 degree and 45 degree cuts. If constant pressure is maintained from the front of the tile to the back the tile can easily be scored and cut. The breaker is activated by pressing down on the handle while keeping the score line centered. This results in a clean break. There are clear instructions on the box on assemble and use, but this tools is simple and easy to use.

The tile cutter is light weight and takes up very little room. The cutter makes it easy with guides to place your tile for a 45 degree diagonal cuts or straight cuts. You can easily cut large format pieces of glass and ceramic and for added stability it has fold out arms for added support but I prefer the metal fold out arms on the more expensive cutters. You can cut porcelain tiles but it can be difficult and porcelain tiles are hard on the blades so you will want to have plenty of extra on hand.

I am really glad I have it. First of all if you look at the photos they show you exactly how the cutting where should be placed and how to use the cutter. The 45 square is great for diagonal cuts. I found this cutter excellent for ceramic tile and acceptable for porcelain tile. If anyone has cut porcelain tile before you know it can be difficult to cut. In my opinion this cutter is acceptable but not perfect for porcelain tile. One comment is the base does a fantastic job of supporting the tile.
