Here is today's question: What is the best tile cutter? I'm really excited because todaywe're going to be taking a look at Montolit's Masterpiuma P3.
This is an awesome tile cutter.
If you want to set tile faster and better with more accurate cuts, and you're usingceramic, porcelain, or even glass mosaic, this could be a great tool for you.
So this is the Masterpiuma P3 that can cut up to 25" x 25" tiles.
If you're curious whatthat equates to in centimeters, it's 63 cm x 63 cm.
The reason why we chose this size of tile cutter is because you can cut long tiles.
Here's the deal: tiles are getting longer these days, and so having a 25" x 25" tilecutter allows us to cut 12" x 24" tiles.
So you don't have to run to the wet saw to cutthis.
Now obviously if you have a tile that's longerthan 24" you'd want to opt for the Masterpiuma that's a bit bigger.
The cool thing about the Masterpiuma is it's easy to see the cutting wheel, and that'salways important when you need to make accurate cuts.
It's very easy to push the handle ofthe Masterpiuma.
It slides back and forth very smoothly.
So you just want to line upyour tile and make your cut.
And when you get to the end of the cut, you can keep thehandle here and break the tile.
So there's no backing up the handle to break the tile,which is nice.
You're going to save a bit of time by keeping the handle at the en ofthe cut.
The nice thing about this handle is the factthat it's self-adjusting.
So you don't have to adjust the handle for different thicknessesof tile.
The tile can be anywhere from ¼" to up to 1" and you can still use this particularsetup.
Let's say for example you need to make a wholebunch of 3" cuts out of this one tile.
You just slide the tile over to the 3" mark, putthis device right here and lock it in place.
You can score the tile and just keep cuttingone after the other.
Another great thing about this tile cutteris you can cut a variety of different tiles all with the same cutting wheel.
So again,whether it's ceramic, porcelain, two-inch mosaics, or glass tile, you're going to besetup for success.
So what about glass tile? How do you cut thatwith the Masterpiuma? You can get a rubber mat for it, and the rubber mat has a littlegroove on the back.
That groove fits into the slot here on the Masterpiuma.
So here's the question: Why do you want this rubber mat? The rubber mat is great becauseit keeps your glass mosaics on the Masterpiuma.
And the other thing is most glass tiles havea white paint on the back of them.
That white paint can be chipped if you don't use a rubbermat.
And if you chip the white paint, you'll be able to see the thinset through the glasstile, and that's never a good thing.
So again, it's very simple to cut glass tilewith this tile cutter.
And as you can see, all these glass tiles were broken perfectlywith the Masterpiuma.
And the other great thing is the white paint on the back was notchipped.
So how accurate can this be with a two-inchmosaic? So let's say you need to take a little sliver off.
As you can see this is about ¼"and now it's cut off of the tile mosaic.
So I'd like to see how little of a cut youcan make with the Masterpiuma.
This is about ½".
So there you go.
That's about ½".
Now if you're cutting textured tile, you can use a WD40 oil pack.
It's very easy to usethis.
You snap off the tip, you slide it down over this pipe cleaner, and that feeds WD40onto the cutting wheel.
But again, you only have to do this for very textured tile.
Mostof the time you're not going to need this.
If you need to cut a 45° angle, that's reallyeasy with this tile cutter.
There's a handle right here.
You turn the handle counter-clockwise.
And as you can see there's, not a D-template, but it shows you you've got your 15°, 30°,45°, 62°, and 75° markings on here.
You can simply just move this until you get tothat 45°, then you can tighten down on the handle by turning it clockwise.
If you want to make a 45° in the other direction, it's very simple.
There's a lever right here,and you pull up on that.
And that allows you to spin it the other direction.
And again,you would just lock it in place.
When you're all finished with the Masterpiuma,there's no disassembling.
You just turn this handle counter-clockwise, move this arm in,tighten it down, slide your stop the whole way to the center, just spin it into placelike so, tighten down, and that's it.
And this is a really light tool as well.
Soit's not like you're going to be lugging around 50 lbs worth of tool.
