Product Details

The QEP 20 inch Tile Cutter with 1/2 inch Cutting Wheel scores and snaps wall and floor tiles up to 20 inches, 14 inches diagonally, and 1/2 inch thick. The dual, chrome-plated steel rails offer smooth scoring, while the rubber padded aluminum alloy breaker bar will not mar the tile. The high leverage, non-slip padded handle makes cutting easier and reduces fatigue. The heavy duty rubber pads found on the reinforced base, prevent tiles from shifting during cutting. The cutter comes equipped with a replaceable 1/2 tungsten-carbide cutting wheel. This cutter also includes a adjustable rip guide designed to help make repetitive cuts in tile faster and easier. This ceramic and porcelain tile cutter is ideal for do-it-yourself tile installation.

    my wife and I bought this cutter since it was large enough to handle the 16 inch tiles. After cutting one tile it showed its garbage craftsmanship. uneven scoring, just poor quality all around. returning this peice of junk tomorrow and buying a wet saw.

    Had to finish a project late at night and didn't want to disturb the neighbors with the wet saw so I bought this cutter today. I couldn't even cut a single tile with it. The scoring wheel is too weak and the rails are flimsy. It might work for thin ceramic tiles but definitely not for porcelain. Don't waste your money on this garbage. QEP makes high end cutters but HD doesn't carry them and they also run over a couple of hundred bucks so unless your needs offset the cost of a good cutter, you might want to consider renting a saw for the job. I will return it tomorrow.

    This was waste of my money. It doesn't cut tile evenly and I wasted so many of my tiles because when you press down on the handle it smashes the tile. The wheel does not score the tile enough. Blah!

    using it to cut ceramic tile, cuts clean and tile snap easily. Used for cutting 16x10" tiles for bath remodel. Not making any claims for Porcelain but looks like it can do the job.

    Tried to cut 18X18 porcelain tiles. First two were fine, third was passable. By the fourth cut, instead of snapping on the scored line, it snapped everywhere else. I sensed the handle wasn't supplying enough pressure at the start of a score, but there's no way to adjust it. After it ruined two tiles, took it back. I wasn't willing to pay for even more replacement tile. Waste of effort, time, money.

    I bought this cutter today to tile my small bathroom and all I can say is it is a TOTAL waste of money. DO NOT buy this product. I will be taking it back to HD tomorrow.

    The stamped frame is thin gauge steel and bends after cutting three 16" tiles. The rip gauge does not lock in place square so it is easy to cut rhomboid shaped tiles!I had to return the unit to a store 45 minutes from my house before completing the job. I'd NEVER suggest this product to a friend!! I don't suggest it for you either!!

    Today is 3/20/11 and I just bought the 20 in QEP tile cutter and returned it after 3 tiles. THIS IS POORLY BUILT. Where do I begin? The steel frame and sliding rods are extremely flimsy. They bend with extreme ease (they are not supposed to bend!) When they bend they take away from the downward pressure and promotes uneven pressure on the tile which leads to many broken tiles. 2) The scoring wheel goes dull after just a few tiles. I exchanged this for the 20 in Brutus and this thing is amazing. Its very strong, wont bend. You can tell just by handling this cutter that it was much better. Tiles cut with ease and precision! Even the rubber mat is better quality. SPEND THE EXTRA TO GET THE BRUTUS

    I had to cut some 16" ceramic tiles and didn't want to spend a lot for a wet saw. I thought about renting one at the tool rental but for the size to cut the 16" the wet saw was expensive to rent .(about 60.00 for 24 hrs) plus the saw was big and heavy. It will take 2 persons and I wasnt sure it could fit in my car. So I took a chance with this manual tile cutter and it worked great from the first tile on. It only took one score and the snapping of the tile was easy. I also cut some 4" tiles down to 2" and didnt have a problem. For the money and simplicity this was awesome.

    It was apparent from the beginning that this tile cutter was poorly built. When you apply pressure to the cutting arm the long metal tubes that guide the cutting wheel carrier arched upwards wasting most of the downward pressure. This caused the end of the tile where the cutting wheel first made contact to barely score. It took 10 - 15 passes to completely score the tile and we had to precisely align it each time because the little attached square is completely useless. Even after we'd completely scored the tile we only had about a 50% success rate of cutting the tile straight. The score was so weak that the tile would break off the line. Even after we started turning the tile 180 degrees to score both ends well we were still only able to get 1 out of two cut successfully. After about 15 tiles the cutting wheel was no longer sharp enough to score the tile even with serious pressure. Also, you can forget about cutting a tile down by anything less than half because attempting to cut 1 or 2 inches off would break the tile unevenly. Don't waste your money on this tile cutter, instead apply it to the rental of a wet saw. It would have been cheaper for us to rent a wet saw for half a day than to waste money on this cutter and waste so many tiles.

    It's flimsy, the cutting wheel wobbles, the rails bend, and there is no support for the tiles. After doing a few tiles and having them come out badly, I replaced it with the 24" brutus, which is $150, but I should have gotten it in the first place. A much better cutter for DIYer like me.

    2 of 10 cuts are crooked, when you did not mark it deep enough and fully marked. It also does NOT do corner-cuts, or narrow cuts.

    The quality of the product is very-very poor:- the base bands- the rails also band; In fact, because of that in one place the cutter does not slide any more and gets stuck- the wheel of the cutter gets loose all the time, so the cut tends to slide to the left or to the right all the time- also, small pieces cannot be cut with this tool: the breaker bar will break the time in another place (tried 5 times until I finally gave up).I believe I named pretty much every part of the tool and there is something wrong with it!I will never buy another product by this company.

    We purchased this cutter to make diagonal cuts on 12" tiles. Tiles cut in half diagonally snapped easily, but when it was necessary to cut a small portion off the corner of a larger tile the 'feet' used to snap the tile were too far down the bars, the bars then bent and the tile would not snap properly. The cutter worked fine doing the longer diagonal cuts or straight cuts as long as the 'feet' were close enough to the end of the cutter.

    The tile cutter squaring bracket had to be removed in order to even fit in an 18" piece. The squaring bracket could hold a max tile size for a center cut of about 12" (pointless on a 20" cutter)Tile cutter broke after 3 tiles. (The support brackets for the slide rails are made of cheap plastic and bent out of place quite easily)This cutter was returned to homedepot and sent back to the manufacturer as defective. I believe it was a cheap design and not a bad unit. Therefore I would not recommend anyone purchase this unit.

    Purchased this for tiling my foyer floor, first two tiles worked well, deteriorated quickly after that. The base is not rigid enough to hold up with any type of useage; it bent under the slightest pressure and by the fourth tile, the cutter wheel no longer contacted the tile unless I pushed down on the rails. This might be an effective tool for some thin wall tile or the like....but not for any type of major project.

    I bought this tile cutter to cut 20'' tile. Also had problems with making straight cuts; unless you hold the tile in place, you will get straight cuts. After a few cuts, the bottom part of the tile cutter bent and the cutting wheel chipped. If you plan to install tile as big as mine, buy the professional tile cutter.

    I have this and a Wet same. I Use this for most of my cuts. this cuts great. Most have complained of cuts being crooked. If you make sure the tile is flush to the front of the cutter it cuts square every time. Best tile tool I've got. Silent and mess free.

    This tile cutter is inexpensive, but does not make straight cuts. We put tile in a tub surround and vanity backsplash and used this for all of our cuts. Even if you score a straight line, the cut may still be crooked. The bars that hold the scorer down are flimsy and will flex when you push harder and cause you to go off your line. If your cuts will be in places that you won't see, this will work, but otherwise get a saw.

    My wife and I only needed to set 10 tiles around our fireplace. We figured that we could use this cutter and save some money over a wet saw for so few cuts that were necessary. Spend a little extra, purchase a wet saw and make sure your cuts are straight. This "cutter" does cut the tile well, however, 4 cuts in a row were 1/8" crooked.Buy a tile saw and save the headaches.
