Manual Tile Cutter 600mm is rated

Needs 2 people to get a good cut
Other reviews have commented on 2 issues: accuracy of measuring guide and chipping of the corner under breaker foot. Neither seem to have been addressed by the manufacturer. So make your own mark on the front and back edge of the tile. Then with the tile pressed hard and square against the measuring guide first check that the wheel is in line with the front mark then move the wheel to the back to make sure the end mark is in line with the wheel. You will see that the tile will be pivoting over the centre 'spine' but about 2mm off of the V notch of the measuring bar. Score the tile as per instructions and place the breaker foot as per instructions. Whilst person one applies pressure to break the tile person 2 MUST HOLD THE TILE LEVEL as possible. DO NOT APPLY ANY DOWNWARD PRESSURE on either side of the tile. It would help if the manufacturer made the shock absorbing pads thicker. We were cutting 9mm porcerlain tiles. By doing the above we had only a few mishaps. We could not do anything about cutting thin strips of less than 4cm as the breaker bar needed that much as a minimum to apply even pressure. So it woks but with more effort that one would first think. Also we had to exchange the cutter because the sliding guide was missing. But as it turned out we did not use it because it either did not move far enough for our required cut or it just got in the way of holding the tile level.

Broke on the first tile
Bought this tile cutter yesterday and tried to cut a tile. As I pushed to snap the tile in 2 after the scoring the handle broke in my hand.
