Glass Cutter (TechShop)
Cutting glass is really easy to do. There are just a few tricks that you need to know.
Getting you glass cutter ready. I use an oil glass cutter. The oil helps proctored the cutting edge and run smoother over the glass. When filling the glass cutter, only put in what you need. The oil will leak out and you will waste oil. You can buy oil at a local stain glass store, or on-line and the small bottle will go a long way.
Step 1: Scoring the Glass
Step 2: Braking the Glass
You may want to get a pair of glass piles, or with thicker glass you can use a ball nose hammer. When you are cutting mirror glass, score on the reflective side and not the painted side. Do not try and cut tempered glass it will not cut and break into pieces.
