Introduction: Precise Glass Bottle Cutting Jig

Picture of Precise Glass Bottle Cutting Jig

Yep! Another bottle cutting jig. What's the difference between this one and all the other? Don't know. Maybe precision. Or the easy ajustment.

The fonctionning is easy. Ajuste the guide, push the blade and turn the bottle.

The width is 23". You can easily move the guide to cut a small bottle or a large wine bottle.

P.S. My knowledge of english is not as good as it should be. Please feel free to send me any suggestion about it.

Thanks

  1. You need two piece of wood, One for the base and the other for the back.
    Cut two piece of wood at 5.5" X 23".
  2. Cut two piece wood to hold your pipe at 3" X 5.5" .You will need to drill 2 hole at half the deep of the wood to hold your pipe.
  3. To make the guide, cut another piece smaller then the 2 side, 2.5" X 5.25". Drill 2 hole for the pipe and a small one in the middle for the lock.
  4. Fix all the part together.

Step 3: Add the Hardware

Yes I like this model glass cutter. Only thing I am wondering is, how is the slide locked to the rails? Or does the screw go all the way through the guide and fix into the bottom timber?

Thanks for sharing

The screw go all the way. Not the prettiest way to lock it. If you have another idea, please post it.

Have a nice day

I love your design! is the blade screwed into the arm? two pictures look like you are holding it. (or does it pivot on a screw??

This one is awesome, yet so simple, You are brilliant to think of two parallel pipes and scoring blade mount with a fixed pivot point. Thanks for sharing.

looks fantastic. The last step with the blade, where would someone get one of them? Great job

Luc Moreau (author)HarryC402016-07-06

I buy this one maybe 25 years ago. Any model can do it.

I've been looking to build one for the longest time now. Your's looks so simple to build, yet very functional, this might be the one for me to attempt! Just one question: do the pipes rotate or are they fixed? Does it even matter?

Nice job on this instructable!

Luc Moreau (author)BirgitJansen2016-07-05

They do not rotate but I don't think it's matter.

Thank for the comment.
