These Ishii Tile Cutters (Big Clinkers) come with with a spring loaded base and their low curved handle design gives excellent leverage (8:1 ratio). This results in deep scores with minimal effort, for clean consistent cuts. A modified sliding bearing block, hard-heated rails, and overall sturdy construction are the reasons these cutters have become the industry standard. They last, are easy to use, and produce clean smooth cuts all on hard porcelain tile.

The Ishii Big Clinker Tile Cutters can cut up to 3/4" thick. Sheet mounted mosaic tiles are easily cut with the Ishii tile cutter by scoring all tiles, raising the wheel position and then individually breaking each tile. Each cutter also comes with two 12" side arm extensions to help support larger tiles. Large 3-1/2" breaker foot with spring loaded cutting table for easy snapping. Adjustable scoring wheel device to raise or lower the titanium coated rotary bearing wheel, for thick, thin and mosaic tiles. The wide, die cast aluminum alloy base has heavy duty rubber pads for cutting stability. These Ishii cutters come with the 7/8" Ishii scoring wheel thin ball-bearing titanium coated wheel.

Customer Questions
Do the Ishii Cutters come with an extra cutting wheel?
No, but always a good idea to pick up a spare cutting wheel. We carry all the Ishii Cutting Wheels as well as the Ishii Tile Cutters.
What is the difference between the Ishii JP line and the JW's?
The JP cutters have a wheel height adjustment on the handle. We carry the JP-700STA, which is the 27-1/2 .in version. They will be on the website by the beginning of next week. They are in stock now however.
What is the manufacturer warranty?
Ishii stands behind their tile cutters and being a manual tool, not much to go wrong under normal use. We offer a 30 day over the counter return policy.
Does this model, JW-480S, have ball bearings in the sliding block or just plain bushings?
what lubricant is recommended to lubricate the bearings?
An oil like this Alpha Cutter Oil would work great on the Ishii bearings:
