Worst tile cutter ever vs. Best tile cutter ever


I went to Lowe's and picked up a 17" sliding tile cutter. Apparently it was the mid-level one because it was 44 bucks, and their high end cutter was like 85. Anyway...got it home and it ruined 3 tiles in a row before I got smart. I went to Home Depot because it was late and it's closer to my house. The tile cutter they sell is called the Brutus and it runs about 98 bucks. The 17" inch brutus cut my 16" inch tiles like magic!!! If anybody at all needs a quality tile cutter spend the hundred bucks and save yourself the trouble.

P.s...NOBODY RENTS SLIDING TILE CUTTERS AROUND THIS TOWN!!!

My friend, once you've used a wet saw you'll never want to use a sliding cutter again! No more ruined tiles!

If I used a wet saw for every straight cut I had to make I would still be cutting tile and not here typing to you.

A good quality slide cutter saves alot of time and alot of expensive saw blades

yeah the wet saw I have took days per tile, but it was right on all the time. The sliding tile cutter from Home Depot was a gift from heaven though. Fast, and it didn't ruin 1 single tile in 98 square feet.
