Works absolutely fantastic. I built a TV stand which incorporates 4 doors framed in wood with glass panels. So I needed to cut some glass to fit each door. I cut every piece of glass with out fault. The key to using these glass cutters one is making sure the glass is clean. Use a good glass cleaner such as invisible glass or alcohol. wipe each pane of glass down with a lint free cloth. If you have never cut glass glass before practice on a spare piece. For the best cut you need to familiarize yourself with the optimal pressure needed for scoring the glass. You need to give enough pressure to put a good score line in the glass but not enough pressure that it causes jagged edges or even cracking of the glass. Once you have that down this cutter will work great every time.

Tried cutting 1/4 in tile with this tool based on a tutorial I watched, and it did absolutely nothing. Disappointing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GFactor Works Great on Plate Glass & Mirrors
The product worked great on several pieces of plate glass and a couple mirrors I recently cut.
1: Make sure and clean the plate glass, bottle or mirror before trying to cut it. Very small pieces of dirt / sand can and will effect the quality of the cut.
2: Use the oil to ensure a smooth ride along the glass.
3: Practice on a test piece so you can get the proper technique down and most importantly so you know what the proper sound is while doing so.
4: As you end a cut on a flat piece, there is no need to push down harder as you exit the piece.
5: Never, Never, Never go back over the line / score / etch you just made! This will only destroy the cutting wheel, and your cut will end up becoming jagged.
This cutter Only works on Plate Glass! Do Not try and cut Tempered Glass, it won't work! If you have never cut glass, go onto the "tube" video website and watch a couple videos on cutting glass, it will help.

Good unit. I had no problem using the tool. I bought it and straightaway cut 10 panes of mirrors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wcsd Absolute garbage
I never cut glass but bought this because I needed to make two straight cuts on a single pane. I forget the exact thickness, but the glass was thinner than the maximum and I followed the instructions to the letter, but it left jagged edges that were not straight by any means. The only reason I was able to salvage the almost ruined glass was with thick trim afterward. At the end of the second cut the wheel fell off the handle and the now the entire tool is broken. Absolute garbage, just like the title says.
It may work for extremely thin glass but not as thick as the instructions claim. I wouldn't trust this product again, or the manufacturer.

I have never cut glass before but talking to a HD associate I decided to buy this kit and it worked great. It came with everything needed to cut the Mirror's I wanted to remove from the wall and could not save. I scored the mirror after Duck Tapping it and covered the Vanity and Floor with Cardboard and the Mirror with my Canvas Tarp's. Tapped a few times with a am
