Rubi Tile Cutters; they used to be one of the only professional tile cutters available to buy in the UK, some time ago mind. TradeTiler used to only sell Rubi cutters, and nobody else had access to them. Though that changed a decade or so ago and now you can find them at many suppliers, and TradeTiler now also sells Sigma Tile Cutters.
Cutters To Suit All Types Of Tiler
These days there are many makes and models in the UK. But Rubi tile cutters are still some of the most used. They stepped up their game from the old TS and TX series and now offer a fair variety. Although you have to note that the TS and TX have changed names slightly, so they’re very similar to the old cutter of the same version.
At first glance there seems to be a few cutters that do the same job. So the TS, TX and TR all have something to cut around the 700mm cutting length mark. But if you look closer they are different cutters and between the three there should be one that suits most types of tiler. When Sigma came on the scene a few years ago there was a bit of a war between Sigma users and Rubi users on Tilers Forums. You’d find people would only use one make and stick to it.
Though people should really consider the fact that different types of tile may be easily cut on one cutter make, but then another type of tile better on another make. So don’t always stick to one brand. Checkout the benefits of the cutters for the size you’re looking for. Read the reviews about them, do a bit of research on the forums and always sleep on it before rushing in.
They aren’t cheap when you start needing to cut 700mm+, so shop around on and offline.
