More about Glass Cutters
The Physics of Glass Cutters
If a clean cut is to be achieved, in new or old glass, a glass cutter tool is an essential piece of equipment. When cut using conventional methods, glass will shatter in all different directions due to the disordered state of its molecules.
A glass cutter tool scores the glass surface, causing an organised stress line to form in the material, along which it is more likely to break. Diamond cutting disks are used to make the score mark, which is usually has a V shaped profile. Use the glass cutter with oil or water to cool the cutting site and help dissipate any heat that arises from friction produced by the operation.
