Tim Carter of http://www.AsktheBuilder.com demonstrates how to cut a hole in ceramic tile.

Check it out, I am installing a ceramic tile back splash behind this cook top but I have got a little problem. See this pipe right here? It is for one of those fancy pot fillers where water will fill one of the cooking pots. I have got to cut a little notch in this tile to be able to get around that pipe. I am Tim Carter for askthebuilder.com and in the next 90 seconds I am going to show you how to use a special tool to cut that U shaped notch.
The best way is to put the tile in place and take a pencil and make a mark as to what you have to cut out. Go a little wider because you have got a big escushion plate that will cover up any over cut. I transferred the semi-circular cut to the back side of the tile and you can actually see where I tried to cut it with my wet diamond saw and it is just not going to work. The straight lines are not deep enough. We need a different tool.
This is the tool I am going to use to make that small semi-circular cut, it is a rod saw that actually fits in a standard hacksaw frame. The rod saw is made with small pieces of carbide that are glued to a piece of steel rod. I am ready to cut the tile and I have to cut it with a good side down, so I like to put a paper towel or a soft rag between the tile and the work bench so the tile do not get scratched.
Okay, I got a little problem here, I cannot get the saw inside this hole, so the way you do it is you actually have to take the rod saw off the hacksaw frame and you actually put it back together while the saw is inside the actual hole in the tile.
Check it out, let us see if it works. You got it. See that? It is going to work perfectly. That is how you cut holes in ceramic tile. I am Tim Carter for www.askthebuilder.com. If you want to discover more home improvement tips go to www.askthebuilder.com.
