Customer Questions & Answers

Will it cut the glass used on display cases and if so what do I need to do to be able to make it happen

Asked by: Kyle
You would have to be able to get the glass sheet free from the case in order to perform all of the steps.

Can this glass cutter be used to cut the bottom off of glass bottles?

Can this glass cutter be used to cut the bottom off of glass bottles?
Asked by: Sy
Yes, But it is not the recommended method that I teach my students. Although I do show them that it can be done it is a long process. One which I am not going to explain here. The tapping ball is rendered obsolete because the bottles are to thick. But it will score the glass just not deep enough, you would have to use heat and ice method.

That is what helps making this process so much easier. This glass cutter did the job for me when it came to cutting 0.125" thick glass into 8x2cm pieces. Score one side, flip it, tap around the area where you left a mark with the ball end but gently, flip it again and break the piece on the edge of a flat surface.

I was hesitant to buy this inexpensive item as opposed to the set that includes cutting oil and sells for more than 4X the price. In the end, I just bought this and it worked perfectly. Most likely the glass you buy has tape residue on it (the product that HD sells is taped into the cardboard carrier), so you probably had to buy Glue Gone anyway. Do what I did, and don't bother buying glass cutting oil or kerosene. Just use Glue Gone as the lubricant. Make only a single score, as the instructions on the glass say (do not try for two scores). Then flip the glass over and tap the opposite side with the ball on the tool. After that, it should snap very cleanly. Mine did on the first attempt. I was worried that I didn't apply enough pressure (I used the cutting tool much like a pencil, with similar pressure -- so even though I heard the tool scratching the glass I found it hard to believe that was enough). Trust the instructions and it should work great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap Bottle Cutter Worked great,scores glass cleanly every time. I've been using it to make cups from glass bottles, and if you keep getting uneven breaks it isn't because of the cutter, its because you aren't heating the score line evenly, or are using too much heat, blowtorch etc. A sure way to get a clean break is to use boiling hot water and pour it on the score line, then try to pull the bottle apart, repeat if necessary. Works every time.g

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Expected For under $5, I can't imagine getting a cutter better than this. The roller has a little play in it, but tight tolerances aren't necessary on a tool like this, as the score line is still accurate. Imnmediately after purchasing it cut two pieces perfectly (with oil of course) and this tool made it look as easy as the youtube videos. I used a straight edge as a guide and scored the glass, then flipped it over and ran the ball end of the tool along the score line. It popped right apart. The ball end does not have any casting marks on it like a low quality tool, and it works very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bang for your buck excellent cutter. i've used it extensively over the last 2 years. just as, if not more, durable than more expensive glass cutters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs help to work on bottles This glass scorer would probably work for breaking thin glass planes, but I was trying to break bottles cleanly. I used the scorer extensively along the bottle, then heated the bottle with a flame along the scoring, then plunged it into cold water and applied pressure to the glass (this method is not recommended as you might cut yourself). I was able to break one out of 3 glass bottles relatively cleanly, but it required some muscle work with the scorer and several tries. The blade was dull after using it on three bottles, but they are inexpensive if you're going to be doing a lot of scoring I'd recommend buying more than one. The handle feels high quality and is made of metal.
