Making drinking glasses out of wine bottles is a project my wife wanted to do, guess who is ending up doing it. I tried various scoring methods to cut the bottles which left unacceptable results. Remembering that I had a wet tile saw, I tried it and it worked great but it still wasn't right. looking on line i found a company that had a wet blade just for cutting glass. I did about 60 bottles in about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Not all bottles are the same thickness through out the bottle. What you need for cutting bottles. 1. A wet / dry tile saw 2. Glass cutting blade - order online --check arbor size on saw first 3. Work out side, there is overspray from the blade 4. Arrange bottles by the type of bottom they have 5. Determine the size of glass you want by determining how many oz it will hold, use a measuring cup to pour the water into the wine bottle, mark the fluid level on the bottle, take the bottle lay it on the saw with your fluid mark against the blade, move the guide against the bottom of the bottle and lock it into place. Now you are ready to start cutting many glasses the same size. 6. turn the saw on, place the bottle against the guide and the blade lightly while turning to score the glass. Then using slight pressure push the bottle into the blade while turning it untill the top is cut off. Each bottle should take between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minuets to make the cut. DON'T GET IN A RUSH 7 Now comes the polishing part.
