    Default Tile cutting service in Brisbane?

    I would really appreciate it if anyone could reccommend me a tile cutting service in Brisbane (inner west)? I only need two very simple cuts done, but I don't want to try to do it myself or wait around for a tradesperson. Just looking for somewhere where I can take a couple of tiles and have them cut on the spot.

    Many thanks in advance.....J

    I can't help you with a service, unfortunately. Bunnings do have a tile cutter for sale at the moment for $22 and will do up to a 400mm tile. My tiles for the ensuite were 450mm so I ended up cutting them with a 4 inch diameter diamond cutting disc attached to my circular saw. It was like cutting butter with a hot knife. The diamond blade was $14 from a tile supplier.

    Actually why not take the tiles to the place you bought them with 6 icy cold brown bottles of liquid currency and ask nicely if they could cut along the lines you have drawn in pencil.

    cheers,

    Default Tile cutting

    Thanks for the advice Stan - excellent. I ignored all the people who said to use a grinder and a diamond blade, and went for the circular saw diamond blade that you recommended. A quick swap and I'm in business. It made more sense to me to cut a flat tile - I used my workbench. As you said - "a knife through butter", or a power saw through pine. I'm in Brisbane (Aus - not California). Cheers, John.
