Cutting Circles And Curves

How do I go about cutting curves and or circles in ceramic tiles. I have a wet saw and a snap cutter. Thanks

With minimal tools, curves are easier then circles cut out of the middle of a tile.

You can use the side of the wet saw blade or any diamond blade to form curves.

They have a high dollar band saw for tile, to cut tricky stuff.

There are different techniques for wall tiles than floor tiles. For wall tiles, you can use a carbide rotary cutting bit (e.g., Rotozip). But that won't work for floor tiles.

For convex curves, you can nibble it away with your wet saw. For concave curves, you can cut fingers and use a tile nipper. For interior holes -- well, that's tough.
