Answer: 
for this application you need to use a wet saw with a glass-wet blade
if your sheets are only 12 inches we will recommend the QEP Model 22650Q wet saw with Blade model 6-7006GLQ (glass-wet) you can order everything at your local home depot

Answer: 
I cut 1/4 in. glass mosaic, put a strip of carpet tape on a 1x4 piece of wood then laid the top of the whole meshed tile squares across it. Made a couple of passes with the Dremel with cutting blade for glass to get it started then nipped them with the nipper tool. Works for individual mosaic tiles also. I think this would work just the same with the 5/16 tiles.

Hello Arreicy!
You have a few options, you can go into your Home Depot and check with the associates in the flooring department, or check your local yellow pages for a glass shop. Make sure they understand what you are trying to do.
I hope that helps, please let me know if I can be of any further help.

Is this tool good for small mosaic and glass projects such as making a mosaic gazing ball or doing a tabletop? Small craft projects with broken ceramic pieces and 3/4 " glass tiles.

Answer: 
Thank you Catlady for your inquiry.
Our glass cutter can be used on ½” mosaic tiles. It is used like a scissor to chip away at tiles when making shapes. It is generally not used to cut big glass tiles, just shapes in glass.
You may also be interested in our diamond file 10586Q, to smooth out the edges, once the glass is cut.
If you have any questions please call our Customer Service (866) Read More

I purchased the glass nipper several weeks ago when I was in the process of installing a glass tile back-splash in my kitchen. I thought the nipper would be ideal for cutting around electrical switches and receptacle boxes. I used 2 x 2 x 1/4" tiles on a 12" mat. These small tiles have a beveled edge which makes it difficult to score evenly and the tiles tend to break or shatter if you are

I purchased the glass nipper several weeks ago when I was in the process of installing a glass tile back-splash in my kitchen. I thought the nipper would be ideal for cutting around electrical switches and receptacle boxes. I used 2 x 2 x 1/4" tiles on a 12" mat. These small tiles have a beveled edge which makes it difficult to score evenly and the tiles tend to break or shatter if you are trying to nibble a straight edge. I did not have a need or opportunity to try the nippers on sheet glass or ceramic tile.
For my project, I used a diamond saw to cut the tiles to approximate shape and used the nippers to nibble small areas to get the fit I wanted. I think the nippers would work for your project but suggest that you practice with scrap material to get the results you want.
Be sure to wear safety goggles and beware of sharp edges.
Hope this helps.

I'm not sure to be truthful, but the cutting wheels will last a long time from what I have seen. You just loosen them and rotate the wheels slightly to get a new cutting edge.

This product was designed to cut glass tiles from 1/32" to 1/4" in thickness. However, we have had customers who have used it to cut glass mirrors. We would recommend testing it on a small area first.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works! Used on glass tiles for my shower remodel and worked like a charm and easy to use. Be careful not to apply too much pressure. To round out the edges, I recommend the rectangular stone filer. July 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nippers I live n the Middle East and we can't find any nippers here so I bring them back for the class. We have bought different kinds and these are be best. I'll be ordering more to bring back. Love them! January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best purchase ever for a backsplash tile job. I used to it to cut glass tile around my outlets. Cuts a straight line very easily with a few practice cuts. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Thing Ever! This might be the best invention ever. We used this gadget to install our kitchen back splash and it came out great. We had a wet saw, but it was too complicated to get set up to use for tiny glass and stone squares. We even tried using pliers to cut some smaller pieces. I read the reviews for this item and I went down the road to Home Depot. This thing cuts clean pieces, my boyfriend was amazed at how well it worked! One of my friends just did a mosaic tile back splash in her kitchen and she didn't know this existed. She's waiting for me to finish my project so she can borrow it! July 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I was looking for I have to say that I've NEVER installed a mosaic glass backsplash before, or done any tile work for that matter, and after buying all of the material and getting rediculous labor quotes for install, I decided to tackle it myself. My main scare was that I had no idea what to do about cutting the tile for the edges and around outlets. I looked, read reviews and you tubed all the options. Wet Saws, Dry Saws, Glass cutters, glass etchers, etc. Finally, after all the research, I decided to go with this product because the reveiws I read here were the closest to my project. A small kitchen/panty area approx less than 100sq ft of wall area. This cutter was the perfect tool for the job. Without experience I finished in about 4 hours. I canonly remember 5 or so cuts that chipped he surface of the glass after cutting it but think about it, it's glass. There is no magic tool that will cut glass perfectly for you every single time, although this came close. My only real suggesstion is to just buy this thing and cut a piece of the glass tile yourself. My confidence boosted 1000% after I made my first cut. It really is very, very simple. Good luck! March 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by glass backsplash work great, but wont cut a straight line, always slightly curved. worked for me as all my cuts were hidden by outlet covers. may want to look into other tools if you do need perfect straight cuts, otherwise supper easy and fast to use. my backsplash looks great. tool help up nicely. stayed nice and sharp for whole project. June 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worked great for my art project! Easy to use, and worked great cutting stained glass materials for my art project. May 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tile nippers Does the job easily and effectively but my hands get really sore from squeezing the handles October 27, 2015
