Hi,

Thanks for the reply.
This is a medium size house and manual cutting will take too long (I presume)and don't want to stay too long out there.
Any idea of makes on best(mid range) Electric Wet tile cutters, not too expensive(I have seen prices in the GBP 600 range)!!
I plan to hire a power generator while out there for the power needs!!
Thanks
Manual cutters are generally faster than wet cutters. If you want to cut a 1500mm tile you're going to need a big, and therefore expensive, cutter. Alternatively, an angle grinder, steady hand and decent blade will do it.

Manual cutting is a lot quicker than a wet saw

I work in remote areas too sometimes, usually with no access to electricity. Generators fine.
Get yourself some good work lights. If you want to get the job done you’ll be working late. And they probably won’t have lighting if my experience is anything to go by.
Preferably rechargeable battery ones if possible

£600 isn’t a lot of money for a cutter.
Seriously, speak to the Tilers. Send them the spec of the tiles and ask them what they would like. At the moment it sounds like someone is trying to get unskilled workers to do a job that requires skill which will only end one way.
