Jig for Snapping Tile with a Manual Tile Cutter
By: Joe Truini
A manual tile cutter is great for cutting porcelain or ceramic tile, but it can be hard to break a small strip off evenly. To solve this problem:
- Score the tile.
- Place the tile between a jig composed of two 1x4s separated by a strip of wood or plywood the thickness of the tile (usually 5/16”) with the scored line even with the edge of the jig.
- Clamp jig and tile securely to a workbench.
- Push down on the tile to break it evenly.
