Where Can I Find Glass Cutter In South Africa

What is a Glass Cutter?

A glass cutter is a tool used to make a shallow score in one surface of a piece of glass that is to be broken into two pieces, for example, to fit a window.

The scoring makes a split in the surface of the glass which encourages the glass to break along the score.

What are the two types of glass cutters?

There are two types of cutting heads: straight cutting and pattern cutting. The pattern cutting head is narrower and swivels 360 degrees.

Meanwhile, the straight-cutting head is wider and does not pivot. Though auto glass technicians cut from patterns, most cuts are straight, making the straight cut head preferred

How long do glass cutters last?

Don’t run a cutter past its prime. These types of cutter generally last for about a mile worth of scoreline. An old one requires excessive pressure and gives inconsistent results.

One that has a flat spot on its wheel from being dropped on the floor will escape a cutline every 3/4 inch or so.

What liquid is used for glass cutting?

Just about any light oil will work. One of my trades in my younger days was as a glazier so I’ve cut a lot of glass. I generally used kerosine but diesel oil works just as well.
