Glass cutting
« on: September 16, 2014, 06:29:17 PM »
Do we have any glass cutting tools?


I'm trying to do it at home with a glass-scorer and i can't get a shape out of it without ruining it.

I have a couple of hole saws for 1" and 1.5" bulkheads that you could use if you like.

There's a bunch of stained glass supplies in the warehouse. The scoring tools will need oil, if I put scoring tools in the bin (can't remember)
I like colors.

Anyone have experience cutting large glass tubes/ pipes?  Last night i was cleaning the garage and manage to crack a 3/8 inch  thick tube dow about 4 inches from the top. The tube is 4 inches in diameter.
I was told this was a pyrec glasss? But cant confirm.  I have been saving this and another 8 inch diameter pipe for a project that just hasnt happened yet.

I would think you'd need a bottle cutter to cut it.
