Re: Montolit Masterpiuma Tile Cutter P3


Well i purchased the P3 and have been cutting scrap tiles. Quite impressed so far BUT I'm struggling cutting 1 inch off a 12 x 24 on the vertical to get a 11 x 24. Any tips. I was hoping to see a video but not a single one I found cut a slim off the long side.
Most of my tile work lately has been 3/8 thick 12 x 24 porcelain gloss tile. So I was practicing on that.

Re: Montolit Masterpiuma Tile Cutter P3


What issue are you having?

Are you setting the narrow rip breaker?

Giuseppe is a great resource for videos from montolit...that cutter should easy do what you're asking as it routinely will cut width's as narrow as 1/2".

I have a feeling it's just technique you need to work on...scoring pressure plays a roll, oiling the wheel frequently has to help on 3/8" and experimenting with the dual flip down breaker to achieve the beneficial cut. Keep at it, I have a feeling you'll get it.

Normally you score, push down on handle to break. On a narrow cut, score, lift handle, a secondary breaker drops down. It is for snapping narrow pieces.

Again, what is happening you're not happy with?

On my 1 inch snap off of a 24, it breaks into jagged pieces. Not a clean straight long cut. I might get 3 or 4 inches from the front edge that are perfect and then as it goes down the score line it either doesn't snap or cracks the whole tile.
I know its a keep trying till you get the hang of it. Just looking for tips.

Try double scoring and oil the wheel.
