Punching Tool

While searching for a new wheel for my ts-30 cutter I a happened across a tool i'd never heard off. (A very unusual event for some one who preferred Bob Vila over cartoons as a toddle). Back to the point. It was a rubi Punching Tool. it promises to be able to cut squares from the center of a tile and all I can say is Blasphemy!

Have you used one?
Do they work?
Videos of one being used?


TL DR: Rubi Punching tool What the heck is it?

I have no idea. I can't tell much by the pic but must be some type of wheel for scoring tiles. I've gone my whole life without it so I guess I don't need one.

Just stumbled upon this old thread in the Advice forum and moved it here.

Googled it up and found that Rubi says Product Not Available In Our Current Catalog. Must not have been a big seller.

Still available on Amazon for 15 bucks, though. Only one review on the product from a French speaking buyer who gave it one star and pointed out that, loosely translated, says it may be good for chocolate tiles.

Proof once again that you can get nearly anything from Amazon, whether you want it or not.

Anybody ever seen or used one of these things?
