Soak the tiles in water before cutting. Having kept it there for 40-60 minutes, you can cut it with a roller glass cutter. Then, aligning the notch line with the edge of the table, break the tile, it will disintegrate exactly along the notch line.
Wall glass or tile can be cut with a conventional roller glass cutter. Marking is done on the enamel with a soft pencil or marker. Then the tiles must be placed on a board or plywood so that the glass cutter cannot damage the table surface..
Basic cutting rules:
As a rule, tile cutters are equipped with a metal ruler for the so-called serial cutting, that is, when it is necessary to cut tiles of the same size (for example, on a curb).
A stationary tile cutter is available for sale. It allows you to cut tiles with less loss and more precision. The cutting technology is somewhat different: the tile is marked out, installed on the base, pressed tightly against the ruler-stop, the cutting is carried out from oneself towards the ruler, the tile at the end of the cut breaks by light pressure on the lever using the corner located on the lever. A special tool (ballerina) is used to drill round holes in the tiles.
Hole in the tile
How to make a hole in a tile without breaking it? The simple way is as follows. Use the sharp end of the tap or the angle of the blade to remove the glaze with a chisel at the place of the future hole, lightly tapping the tool with a hammer. If the tile is glued to the wall, then the intended hole can be drilled with a hand drill (with an electric drill) with a drill clamped in a chuck or a punch with victorious surfacing. In tiles that have not yet been installed on the wall, it is best to cut the hole by holding the drill in your hand.
