    This may be a silly question but when cutting 600mm tiles do I need a 600mm tile cutter or one that's slightly longer? I need to replace 3 tiles that had to be broken to get at a burst pipe. Going to attempt myself

    buy a cheap Tile Scribe/Scorer - measure and scribe the line using a straight edge - then snap cut by setting the line over an edge, and then applying pressure.
    short cuts can be scored, and then nibbled away with pliers or pincers.

    practice on the old smashed tiles.

    Unless it's porcelain tiles, especially the 10mm.
    In that case look out for tiler's van and when you see one ask them to cut your tiles which you have previously marked.
    Slip a tenner in their pocket...
