I am getting ready to do a tiled shower project, and after that, a roughly 800sq ft floor. In both cases, I will use porcelain tile and the tile will be large format tile (LFT) that measures 12"x24".
I have a wet saw, but the shower is on the second floor and it would be much easier if I could cut the tile in the same room or at least on the same level of the house. To do this, I am looking at purchasing a tile cutter similar to this one. I understand that tile cutter can only cut straight lines, and I am OK with that.
My concern is that I've seen numerous websites/comments that say a tile cutter does not produce a clean edge, and that since porcelain is harder than ceramic, getting a good cut is much harder with the tile I want to use.
I am wondering if anyone can confirm or refute my concern. I am by no means a professional, but I would venture to say I'm an above-average DIYer. Given that, do I stand a reasonable chance of being able to use a tile cutter with a somewhat high degree of success?
