Will this curmt glass for stained glass projects?

Asked by: SullyO
do you mean real Glass? (not some short of plastic sheet) ? No, glass is not sawn- on anything, it scored and broken to size, it can be sanded on a wet sander, but now sawn.

2.5 Amp 9 in. Wood Cutting Band Saw is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 23.

Came basically assembled. The 6 tpi blade that comes with saw makes rough cuts so had to buy 15 tpi separately (Olsen). Seems to be a good light duty saw. I was cutting 2x4's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good. The alignment of the blade was... So far so good. The alignment of the blade was set up just right out of the box. The led light is just a hair above useless, the lumens are very low. I wanted a saw to cut pen blanks (wood and acrylic), and it works perfectly for that.
