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.

    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.

    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!

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

    Thank for the comment.
