The bumps at the site of incision smooth out the rasp. Blunt disc cutter should be replaced. When working with a blunt disc cut tiles have an irregular fracture at the place of cutting.
In the absence of fixtures tile on a square incised along the line marking cutter (glass cutter) on the front surface and with the ends of the tiles.
