Needed to cut 1200mm Porcelain tiles. A lot of them.

Didn't have £3k spare for an Italian machine, so this is what I built!

Cuts to 0.25mm over 1200mm.

I have just finished laying 400 tiles, all of which hd to be cut due to my choice of pattern...

So Vitrex machines can work ok, provided you can fettle them to get them running straight and true.

I went through just 2 ATS blades, using Marcrists magic dressing stone to keep them running true.

So here's a cut, showing what this machine can do. 16mm porcelane.

900mm long strip, 3mm wide, width varies by 0.3mm along whole length.

The edge in the first pic has had one pass with a 200 grit diamond pad.

The lefthand edge in the second pic is straight off the machine.
