You will have better luck with a hand glass scorer, looks like a pen with a score wheel at the bottom and the tube is filled with oil (like a sewing machine oil). If you want to cut each tile individually, then snap the tile by holding each side with a pair of snubby pliers wrapped in tape (slippery otherwise) You can get a glas scoring pen at craft stores with stained glass supplies or a stained glass supply shop or online. The wet saw is used to cut a row of the tiles at once, which is most efficient. The sliding tile scorer would be too cumbersom to hold the small tile in place and try to cut.

12 x 12 marble tile I have put that up twice don't know why it is not appearing


60 if there are no cuts.
You usually add about 10% for waste. So 66 tiles should do it.

Applied dark brown glass tiles and those that were cut with a wet diamand blade saw are darker in colour to the others. will cut tiles become the same colour as other non cut tiles?


THIS COULD BE CAUSED BY 1 OF TWO THINGS, WHEN YOU USE WATER TO CUT ANY TILE YOU ARE INTRODUCING WATER TO THE INSIDE OF THE TILE WHICH WILL CAUSE THIS DARKENING OF THE TILE, 2ND WHEN YOU WET CUT USE A SLOW LITE PRESSURE LET THE BIT DO THE WORK TO MUCH PRESSURE AND NOT ENOUGH WATER WILL CAUSE OVER HEATING AND DARKEN THE TILE. HOPE THIS HELPS. ALSO
THIS DOESN'T ALWAYS WORK BUT AFTER CUTTING PLACE TILE IN A HEATED AREA TO DRY OUT THE WATER ,THE GLAZING IS WHAT PROTECTS THE INSIDE

Door rubs on new tile floor. How do I fix this.


The best way to solve this is to remove the door and re-install it at the desired height. Last resort - cut jambs off, raise the threshold. cut the top off the door, reblock it and move it up in the jamb. Yes, I have done this before, when there was no room to raise the door. I managed a door shop and we cut and reblocked many steel doors at the top. I like to use construction adhesive to hold the block.

Tile Saws types problem


Mass produced ceramic tiles of medium to soft grades are cut easily with hand tools. The glazed surface of the tile is first scored with a tool that carries a hardened metal wheel. Then with a support directly under the score pressure is applied to either side of the cut and the tile snaps along the score. The harder grades of ceramic tiles like fully vitrified porcelain tiles, stone tiles, and some clay tiles with textured surfaces have to be cut with a diamond blade.

How to use Tile Saw


To cut a tile using a wet tile saw, measure the exact space in which the tile will fit. Cuts are usually along a perimeter, in a corner, or around an electrical outlet. Mark the line on the full-sized tile in grease pencil. Most saws will accommodate tiles up to 12 inches (30 cm) in size, but oversized saws can be rented for huge floor tiles. Wearing safety glasses, place the tile on the moveable platform, and line up the mark with the edge of the saw. With the motor running, slide the platform toward the blade with an even but gentle pressure. Since you are grinding the tile apart, ensure that the water have sufficient time to cool everything.

Tile Saws question


Since tiles are so thick, brittle, and made of ceramic, a special saw must be used. An ordinary circular saw for wood or metal would either break the tile or get so hot that it would seize up and stop cutting. However, ceramic tile is not cut well with sharp blades. The wet tile saw was invented to address all these unique properties of ceramic. It doesn't overheat, uses a relatively dull blade with no serrations, and can be transported to a job site and set up on top of an existing table or sawhorses.
