    Default Glass cutting - circles

    Does anyone here have experience with cutting circles with glass cutters. I am going to experiment. I have looked at the circle cutters on ebay. The one that looked promising was a oil fed cutter on a pivoting arm.
    Looks easy on utube
    Suggestions??? Don't do it etc???

    Thanks
    Lyle.

    basically I use a template and a little red devil glass cutter. trace the circle with the glass cutter then slice it up like a pie, I then add a few cross cuts on one wedge then tap that wedge out from as close as I can from the centre and rest tend to come out fairly easily using padded pliers.
    if your wanting to cut circles of glass do the wedges on the outside of the circle
    Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything, but they
    bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs .
