There’s a few guys Josh, and everyone who has one rates it.
But then at around £300 they should be. 😊

But then you know mitres are the way to go 🤣

I have one and it's excellent. I haven't used it very much but really rate it.

I use one of these


Bought it in B&Q for £30 a couple of years ago, I use it for all metal trim cutting.
Just lay the trim on a price of batten, perfect 45s every time.

Found one for £220 and 100% mitres are the way forward I’ve got 22 splashbacks to do in January and don’t really fancy doing mitres with a hacksaw on all of them :tearsofjoy:

I bought one today £220 with 10 spare blades couldn’t bare the thought of cutting all the trim by hand on 22 splashbacks seeing as half the splashbacks are 1 300x600 tile then brushed trim

Yeah, it can be a bit vicious.
Close your eyes and hope for the best. 😂

I did it in a plumbing supplies showroom once and was surprised on how many plumbers picked up on it .
Been doing it for so many years now, just looks so much better, it flows and doesn't look sharp or angular.
Always get a comment of how good it looks.
Do the same on kitchen splashbacks, half tiled round windows.

I find it works better if you soften the corner of the tile a smidgen

The base of the v needs to be 3mm wide.
Bend using a tile (say 400mm x 400mm) to help stop twisting
And Jerry says soften the tile corner
Thanks Will give it a go tomorrow :):)
