TYPES AND USES
WHEEL TYPE GLASS CUTTER
The wheel glass cutter consists of a steel cutting
wheel (1) notching teeth (2), and a holder (3). It is used
for making straight cuts on glass.
CIRCLE GLASS CUTTER
USING A WHEEL-TYPE GLASS CUTTER
The circle glass cutter has an adjustable arm (1), a
cutting head (2), and a suction cup clamp assembly (3).
The cutting head scores a mark on the sheet of glass.
The suction cup assembly provides an anchor. The
circle glass cutter is used to cut circles in glass. The
adjustable arm can be moved in the suction cup assem-
bly to allow circles from 2 to 24 inches in diameter.
USE CARE WHEN HANDLING GLASS.
WEAR GLOVES TO PROTECT YOUR
Place padding (newspapers, a piece of carpet, or
blanket) on a flat, level surface.
Make sure the glass is clean. Apply alcohol (1)
along the line to be cut. This prevents the cutting
wheel from becoming gummed up while in use.
Place a straight edge (2) along line to be cut. A
wooden yardstick should be used when available,
since wood will not slip easily on glass. The cutter
will cut 1/16 inch from your mark, so adjust your
guide before cutting.
