Circles In Glass
Cutting a Circle Of Glass Made Easy
Many people might think that cutting an accurate circle in a piece of glass or stained glass is a pretty tricky process. Well doing it free hand with a glass cutter it would be. However with the help of a specialist circle glass cutter the process is actually reasonably straightforward. Working in a similar way that a protractor does when you draw circles, a circle cutter has a glass cutting tip where the pencil would be and a rubber gripping foot where the pointy bit of a protractor would be (ie the Centrex of your circle)
Holding the centre in place you slowly bring the cutter around in an ark until a circle has been scored. All you need to do now is a few straight line scores radiating from the circle and a careful use of some running pliers to break the glass off around the circle scores. It will only take a couple of attempts before you can cut circles in glass with ease.
