    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

    If tiles are insitu then an angle grinder with a very good blade will do the job... ;) ....cheaper as well :LOL:

    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!

    i have trimmed tiles in situ with the bosch version but an angle grinder would be better how many tiles do you need to cut stick up a picture plus angle grinders are leathull in the wrong hands :(

    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
