Here’s a simple, homemade tile-snapping jig. Cut two 12-in. pieces from a 1×6. Sandwich a piece of wood slightly thicker than the tile between the 1x6s. Score the tile, and then slide it into the jig so the line falls on the edge of the 1x6s. Clamp the jig down and apply pressure to the tile until it snaps. It works really well for narrow pieces. — Dave Irwin
