The Crain 12” cutter provides the accuracy demanded by professionals. The straightness of cut is factory-calibrated to +/.005” prior to shipment, which is essential for precisely matching edges in pattern work. The 12 3/4" blades are made with a special high-carbon steel edge that is sharp and long-lasting. The cutter also has a locating stop for repeat cuts at the wall. When the tile to be cut is placed in the cutter, the tool automatically measures the correct size based on the distance between the blade and the wall.
