View Full Version : new tile snapper

anyone have one of these ? I won a Raimondi ' pedalo ' in a distributor's open house, but trade the rep for his used tile cutter.
How well do they work ?
What is going to be the learning curve from toemechanic to this one ?

over the years I just don't like the wrist action of the pull back ones.
had a few Superiors and noticed my wrist hurt from the angle.
kind of a pinch on the thumb side in my wrist when I pull back.
I wont use anything now but a push bar cutter.

I got one and love it. It will cut anything really clean. It will take you ten cuts to get it. Honest to God, I like it more than the Rubi. Only thing I don't like is its a little bulky to use in small areas. My favorite part is the fence that you can set to make angle cuts really easy.

I have one also. However I couldn't get used to pulling the handle, so I turned it around and now push the handle. It works very well but a bit bulky for smaller areas.
I've got the push version. I like it.

Dang....I used the "Superior" pull-type back in the Color Tile days. Got used to it and it worked pretty well.....for small tiles. Wouldn't mind havin' one again, but I DO love my ISHII push-cutter. It'll cut a 3/4" strip off of an 18" porcelean tile, slick as grease!
