A convenient hand operated plier type tile cutter with a hardened steel blade, suitable for cutting and trimming natural slate and fibre cement shingles to the correct size.
The cutter has a 35mm single stroke cutting capacity that will cut slate up to 3mm thick and features an integral nail punch that can be used to produce fixing holes of 3.2mm diameter up to 60mm from the edge the tile. The added convenience of a quick cutting action is assured by a spring loaded return action, along with soft grip handles to provide the user with extra comfort during prolonged periods of use. For safe storage the cutter can be locked in the closed position using the convenient safety catch.
Ideal for cutting and nibbling slates for fine fits in awkward positions, up on the roof where manoeuvring a full size slate cutter would be difficult. Easily carried in a nail pouch.
