Summary: I just purchased and used for a small project with many cuts (bathroom)with 13x13" 3/8th tiles. The rip guide is difficult to align, easier to use a marker & free hand. Cuts slow , but clean, virtualy no chipping. I called Cust. Service for technical support, had to leave my number, but did receieve a call with in 1 hour (B-). Table has slight bevel in lower left corner which surprisinlgy belongs there.
Summary: The warranty on this product is 3 months. 12 days after the warranty the saw stopped cutting only after 20 CUTS!!! Not only that the blade cut crooked. Also the cheap plastic table of the saw is not flat and very difficult to pop in and out. I rate this product with zero stars but I had to put one.
Summary: I've rented professional tile cutters before buying the FTS-50. The professional cutters feel more sturdy but this cutter has been a great little workhorse. My wife and I did our bathroom and continue to loan it out to friends who are remodeling. For a budget tile cutter I could not be happier.
Summary: We've used it several times for smallish jobs (bathrooms) and lent it out to others with good results. As other reviewrs have said, it works, but you have to go slowly (don't force the tile). Also, it won't cut 6" tiles in a single pass...you have to turn them end-for-end. It cuts cleanly and quickly and so far I've been satisfied with the product.
