Hi all,

Im a DIYer doing a lot of work on an old house we are f restoring.

I have put down a lot of riven slate downstairs and bought a Rubi DW-250 wet saw for it. Its done a great job. Got more slate to do in the bathroom, but also going to have 50m2 or so of porcelain to do.

The question lies in that i have a glass tile splash back and up-stand to do, probably 2m2 in total, using 300x300 tiles but almost every tile will need a straight cut.
So, do i spend the money on a manual cutter, which i could then also use for the Porcelain, or spend the money on a proper 250mm glass diamond blade, just to do the splashback stuff?

These are the tiles im thinking of;

It seems like a decent glass blade or a semi decent manual cutter are both £150 area, but am less willing to spend it on a blade to do such a small job, at least the snap cutter can be used elsewhere and probably to better effect than wet cutting smooth porcelain?
Thanks
Rich
