A lot of tiles these days need to be cut with a wet cutter... they wont cut with a normal wheel cutter.. tiles such as slate, marble, quartz ,some porcelain... when buying a wet cutter go for the best you can afford, if tiling on a regular basis , i would recommend Rubi... I have 3 wet cutters and have owned them over 20 years with no problems... and thats with very regular use, if your doing the occasional job, you can buy cheaper table cutters for around 50 pounds or so... these will do for the odd kitchen shower etc...

The only thing I have away from rubi is a QEP bench cutter. That bloody thing has lasted 7 years and there's times I have mullered her beyond what a tile cutter should be mullered... She has stood strong in the face of abuse.. I call her Bernie the bench

He was trying to brown nose rubi like he managed with refina but that all backfired when they looked on this tile section,they saw herbie and Larry had the sponsorship wrapped up:LOL:

Hi guys I'm a tiler by trade and on the subject of wet cutters the sigma 10m9 is the best cutter by far it's got a hefty price tag but I wouldn't be without mine I also own the dewalt d24000 it's a great machine but it's not a sigma
