How to Cut Ceramic Tile with a Jig Saw.  


Need to make a cut or two in ceramic tile, but you don’t have a wet saw?  No worries!  You can cut the tile with a jig saw. This technique works well for making angled cuts and notches in ceramic tile.  

While a manual tile cutter is the best tool for making straight cuts in ceramic tile, you will at times need to make notches, slanted cuts and smaller cuts in ceramic tile when you are laying down floor tile.  This is so that you can lay down the tile in corners, tight spaces, or around objects.

To accomplish this task, you will need a power jig saw, equipped with a special (but inexpensive!) diamond blade.  Make sure that the tile is securely clamped to your work surface before beginning to make the cut.  While making the cut with your jig saw, you squirt water from a squirt bottle on to the tile to keep it cool.

And that is about it!  Now you can easily make any type of small cut in a ceramic tile, using a jig saw.  Watch the video below to learn how.
