Montolit Masterpiuma Tile Cutter P3


Just snagged a great deal on one of these and I'm dying to try it out. It's the 44 or 17" model and I've been wanting one for awhile.

Now I just need a metric tape measure

Re: Montolit Masterpiuma Tile Cutter P3


I definitely want a bigger one as well, it's just a hard choice picking which one...

Where did you find the deal on the Montolit? Need to pick up a new cutter in the next week and trying to decide between one of the Montolits or Sigmas.

What’s the science behind the oiled cutter?

E bay...private seller, I literally stole it. They only had two, new in box...factory sealed. I went back yesterday to buy the other one for my nephew and it was gone

I just received it yesterday...i can't stop hugging it it's got the titanium coated carbide wheel as well.

You can't go wrong with Sigma either...there's just something about Brevetti Montolit MasterPiuma that tickles my fancy...it's extremely lightweight as well as handling up to 22mm thickness

I have a 48" Rubi and the 24" Montolit. There's something about the sound of the cutter on the Mono that is music to the ears.

I went with the Rubi due to recommendations here. I would have gone with the 48" Mono if I had used one prior to getting the Rubi.

Only thing I wish the Mono had outriggers to support cross cuts.

I don't know the science, my guess is the wheel tools better across the hills and valleys instead of stoping and starting at each bump.

They recommend it for textured porcelain or for thick materials when the applied pressure to the cutter is greater.

Nothing special, just WD40 packets

That Rubi has got to be massive

Up next is the Mosaic mat...unless I can make my own...is it possible Tom? Those dang things are nearly 80 clams but worth every penny I'm sure.

I have access to some rubber matting materials, and I know it needs a groove cut in the back of it...I think anyway.

It is expensive, I had a run of glass backsplashes to do. Paid for itself job one.

It's not a groove, it's a spline that holds the mat centered.

It is. Another one of those I had the jobs to support the purchase.

I edited my previous post about the Mono and Rubi. The Rubi does have swing out outriggers, I wish the Mono had outriggers to support long tile on cross cuts. Today I had a couple of tile snap while cross cutting them on the Mono before I reached the end of the score due to the overhung weight.

Thanks for pointing out about outriggers/support. My next job contains some 8x40" plank tile. I'll make sure to fab some supports if the cutter doesn't include big enough outriggers.

Build a table with a recess for the cutter to sit in. I like the idea so much I might do that myself.

Re: Montolit Masterpiuma Tile Cutter P3


Instead of getting a metric tape measure for use with the Masterpiuma, I've settled on Starrett measure stix to do the job...now why didn't I think of that

Good quality steel tape with adhesive backing...sticks permanently to most surfaces...now that's what I'm talking about.
