Glass bottle cutting?(a champagne bottle)? Answered

I have explored all your pages with regards to glass bottle cutting and i can,t find anything with regards to cutting a champagne bottle.
Yes, the bottom
How does one cut the bottom off the champagne bottle??
i have tried many ways, with the tapping from the inside to heating the outside and then rapidly cooling and all are unsuccessful....
Please could you help?

I have heard that you can soak a thick string in acetone or nail polish remover, tie it around where you want the bottle to be cut, light it on fire with a match and let t9 burn for 20 seconds or so and then quickly dunk the bottle in ice water. I havent tried this yet, so if you try it let me know if it works.

I've used a dremmel with a diamond cutting wheel (as rickharris previously mentioned) to cut the bottom off wine bottles. It is slow-going but works. Another option might be a power drill with a diamond cutting wheel attachment. (Might work a little faster.)

I put mine in a lathe and held it straight then spun it by hand and used a steel tool with a single point, to scribe a circle around where you want to cut the bottle, then I used the heating and rapidly cooling technique to break it off.

A champagne bottle is much thicker than a normal wine bottle - I would try a dremmel with a diamond cutting wheel.
