Tiling and earthenware are different in many ways. Adapted tools make it possible to realize all forms of plots.
Cut tiles to the electric tile
- For straight and perpendicular cutting, position the tile on the pan.
- Then move forward continuously.
- For a 45° chamfered cut, place the side bracket at the required distance.
- Tilt the tray.
- Position the tile.
- Then move slowly and smoothly to get a clean cut without glare.
- A bevel cut gives a nice finish to a salient angle. It avoids the installation of a corner wand.
Cut tiles to manual tile
- Place the tile on the tray against the top stop.
- Scratch it by firmly moving the carriage wheel.
- Lay a thin metal rod under the tile.
- Then exert pressure on both sides to split the tile.
Cut tiles with manual pliers
- Strip the tile by pressing hard with the pliers knob.
- Use a cleat to create a straight groove.
- Position the tile between the anvil and the jaws of the clamp.
- Tighten and split the tile at the groove.
- To remove a portion of tile, it is possible to cut freehand with a grinder.
- Another solution: cut out the part to be removed with a special coping saw.
- For any passage of pipe... the tile saw allows a circular cut to the correct diameter.
