Maintaining your tilecutter will ensure you get fast, accurate cuts. While the chisel can be sharpened with a grinding wheel, make sure you have a container of water handy to keep the edge of the chisel cool. Hardness will be lost if it gets too hot.

As the chisel wears, thegap between chisel and wheel widens. Don’t just slide the chisel down and nip up the grubscrew – it will pop back up with the first cut.

Instead, pack some small washers under the base of the chisel. Replace the wheel from time to time and also the small pin that goes through the wheel. Worn bolts in the handle and plunger linkage can be replaced with our special oversize bolts. If you prefer, we will do the maintenance for you while you wait.


Hytile Trimming Trays are a great way to keep the roof and guttering free from bits and pieces of cut-off tile.

Keep the roof safe and eliminate the need for clearing up after the job by using a durable, light-weight Trimming Tray with your Tilecutter.
