I know it's not the intended use, but is there any reason why this could not be used to score vinyl plank flooring? Because of nerve damage, most box cutters hurt my hand when I have to use very much pressure, so I was thinking that something with a wheel rather than a fixed blade might be easier and this was the only thing I could think of. Just wondering if the wheel is sharp like a razor blade or if it is more abrasive.
Asked by: Sheila
I'm affraid it will not work for that. It has a carbide wheel that is designed to score hard material. I have seen vinal tile cutters that may work better for you, as long as your not cutting the planks length wise.

Husky 5 in. Glass Cutter is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I ruined my large pane of glass trying to use... I ruined my large pane of glass trying to use this cutter. I used the ruined piece to try and get some practice in but the cutting wheel just simply would not cut correctly. I bought a $15 cutter online and it was night and day, don't cheap out because you will pay more in new glass in the end.

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.

Was a little nervous cutting a large 3x8 mirror, but this tool worked as a charm, paying for itself in a single job. Not sure of long-term durability. I would guess the carbide would eventually chip off, especially if you press too hard.

I had to get a10ft long piece of 1/4" mirror down a turning staircase, and out of my house. The only thing I could think of was to break the mirror. Then I ran across this "cutter". I watched videos, which seemed to be WAY to easy for this to work like it should. None the less, my other option was to break the item and experience 7 years bad luck, so for three dollars investment, I figured I couldn't go wrong. I purchased this super inexpensive product to try to do the job. using a straight edge, and goo gone as a lubricant, I scored the mirror as shown in many videos on youtube. I flipped the mirror over, grabbed one end and lifted to create pressure. I one loud cracking sound, the mirror was "snapped" in two, right on the line! I now had two pieces that would fit down the stairwell.

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

I bought this to cut glass inserts in single pane glass for picture frames and cabinet doors. I've had this for about a year now and have used it on quite a few occasions. It scores the glass well and glides easily. When using a straight edge it was difficult at times to keep the cutter head on track because small changes in the angle with which the cutter is held changes where the score line is. With some practice it gets easier to use consistently and accurately. I usually score the glass at least twice before breaking it along the score line. Once wasn't enough on single pane glass to get a good even break. I have not used oil with this cutter so I'm not sure how that might impact the scoring. I would probably get this item again because it is so cheap and easy to replace.

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.
