Cutting my tiles.....


I am using a 13 inch tile cutter, (the type that scores and then you snap the tile) but I just realized that it is not big enough to cut my tiles on a diagonal, as I am putting in the tiles on a diagonal.

It can score the tile, but I can't snap it. Does anyone know how I would be able to snap it without having to go and purchase another bigger tile cutter?


ccarlisle---don't answer this........
just kidding, just don't give me a lecture.

Cutting my tiles.....


it would be better to just buy the larger tile cutter,,but HD (homedepot) rent an 18 in. tile cutter..but only some will have it so call @ first ...the other option is a hand held score and snap,,,,looks like a tile nipper but it has the lil wheel to score and the T- to snap the tile but u have to free hand every score and they don't always snap right..but like i said it would be best to just buy the 18in tile cutter....good luck

Thanks for your help. But I figured it out. After scoring the tile, I cut up a coat hanger, the wire ones, taped it on a table, brought my tile over, placed the scored section over the wire hanger, and applied pressure and it worked.
