STEP 4: Cutting the tile __ The first step in cutting tile is measuring the size of the tile you wish to cut and transferring the dimensions to the glazed surface of the tile via felt_tip marker. Position the tile on the tile cutter, aligning the center line of the cutter with the axis on which the tile is to be cut. To keep it square, the top of the tile should be held flush to the fence at the top of the cutter. Then, using the lever to which the cutting wheel is attached, draw the cutter across the surface of the tile, exerting a firm, even pressure. Make only one pass with the cutter. Finally, snap the tile.
Allow the paste to set for five minutes, and then gently wipe it away with a soft_bristle brush or nylon pad. Apply a dab of brass polish or non_gel toothpaste to a clean cloth if the scratches remain. Rub the tile with the cloth using circular motions; then rinse. Reapply the toothpaste, brass polish or scouring paste as necessary until the whole scratch or all the scratches have disappeared.
