Forgive me if this has already been asked (didn't come up on a search)

Is a Fein Multitool or similar any good for cutting ceramic floor tiles in situ. I know they are very good for removing grout but what about cutting tiles.

Thanks in advance

Simon

If tiles are insitu then an angle grinder with a very good blade will do the job... icon_wink.gif ....cheaper as well icon_lol.gif

But is a fein multitool good for cutting tiles?

An angleginder is all very well but is not suitable.

Both cost the same to hire!

Yes you can use multi tool for cutting tiles with correct blade, I have also use a Rebel roto-saw with a tile bit but not a very tidy cut.

if you can get hold of a water-cooled one it will save you a lot of dust, depending on how many you have to cut.
Makita used to do one with a 75mm diamond blade and a small water bottle, it sat on a guide like a circular saw. great bit of kit
