Not tiling for a living, nevertheless, over the years I’ve tiled a number of bathrooms and even a couple of commercial kitchens and recently I did a bathroom job with high gloss finish 12×24 inch tiles that had all electrical, air, and plumbing outlets close or near the center of the tile. Not quite knowing how to get these cuts done and all easily available cutting tools pretty inadequate, I searched on Google and came across the Diamond Tile Cutter for jigsaws. Designed and manufactured in Germany, I felt it must be an okay tool considering the high standards they have for pretty much everything mechanical/technical. So instead of going back to the good old handsaw or splitting the tile, for the price ($ 24.50 NO shipping charge) I thought I’d give it a shot. The thing arrived in a few days from the US distributer in the original German packaging, but outside and inside were a great number multiple language instructions, of course English – not that it needed much in the first place. I followed their website instruction and soaked the tiles that needed to be cut in water. I know, they say their tool should not be used for high density tiles (mine were pretty much what I would consider porcelain) I did it anyway. The result was quite remarkable, while not the fastest on this type of tile, however, I got the whole project done with one bit – beats a handsaw or splitting a tile anytime. All my cutouts, some pretty large, were finished within a good hour (total of over 80 inches in length) cumulative. The physical work was done by my Skil jigsaw while I was guiding the saw – excellent result and the blade is still good for more. Sooner or later I will use the tile cutter again – the diamond coating held up remarkably well. I did spray regularly water on the contact point of the diamond blade. Best of all: not a single tile was wasted, no scratches and all cutouts fit perfectly the receptacles, plumbing, and air vents. Considering the physical power I would have used with a traditional handsaw and the time saved (money), the price for this precision tool seemed very fair. While cutting requires a little patience it beats all other methods that I know by a mile. I’m satisfied with the Diamond Tile Cutter and recommend it.
