Hi there, been cutting 800 x 300 porcelain tile square cuts no problem for my bathroom walls however struggling to cut hex porcelain tiles corner to corner. The last 20 to 30mm breaks away from the score line. I checked the score and it does look or feel any different where the break veres off. Photo attached (ignore the jagged edge on rh tile I tried the nippers) Any advice welcome. Thanks.

Does your end that tails off always happen at the same end of the cutter? You may need to adjust your cutter for the correct height of the tile

Try double scoring the end that is not braking correctly. you could just be missing some pressure on the scoring action.

Try slowly breaking the tile with smaller push down actions with the breaker on the tile and slowly move up the tile doing the same instead of one swift snapping action.

wetcut/grind the top and tail then snap it providing you dont require both halves of the tile to be exactly half
