My sigma arrived today!

Well I ordered a sigma 3c2m 12 days ago from Ireland and I just got it unboxed. I grabbed some 24"x3/8" thick porcelain scraps I had and it ripped through them pretty dang easy. So far I'm impressed.

I like mine as well. We have used a lot of cutters through the years. Sigma is the only one that keeps going.

Also keep the origination on the down low. Don't want that secret getting out. I like saving a few hundred on a cutter just because it has a metric scale

Any tricks to it? I know it becomes a feel thing but any advice is welcome this is the first decent snap cutter if ever owned or used.

With the sigma cutters, it's possible to exert a great deal of pressure on the tiles while scoring. Not all tiles need it and a light touch is often better for consistent snaps. This is especially true with glass tiles. Also the scoring wheel doesn't last forever, I replace mine once or twice a year.
