Anyone have way to cut tile around a the toekick of kitchen cabinets. I would prefer not to have to remove the cabinets but the tile was laid first and then the cabinets were set. I have seen 3 1/2 toekick saws but I have not seen a tile blade for them. Anyone have a suggections?

I have a Rotozip tool with the rotary tile bits. I have cut out outlets, moldings and pipe ptofiles withit and love it. Makes tile work much easier.

When it comes to grouting tight areas, I have found that the cheap silicone spatulas with the pull off blades work great. Just stiff enough to get the grout in the space, small enough to do the job and comfortable to work with, even with my big hands.

I had to cut tile from under a toekick and used a Fein tool with the tile cutting blade. The tool is rather expensive but dremel makes a cheaper version that might work for you

Removing kitchen tiles can be a challenging task, but with the right tools and techniques, it can be done effectively.You’ll need safety goggles, gloves, a hammer, a chisel, a pry bar or putty knife, a grout saw or rotary tool with a grout removal bit, and a bucket for debris.Begin by wearing safety goggles and gloves for protection. Use a hammer and chisel to tap the tiles gently along the edges. Start osteoporosis injection from a corner or an edge and work your way across. Apply controlled force to avoid damaging the substrate beneath.Remember, kitchen tile removal can be time-consuming and physically demanding. It’s important to take breaks, stay hydrated, and exercise caution throughout the process. If you’re unsure or uncomfortable with the task, it’s best to hire a professional for assistance.
