How to cut glass? How to saw, drill, polish glass…

  Glass is one of the oldest materials. It was invented by ancient Egyptians. I don’t know how did they finish it, but I know how the glass is finished nowadays.
  Glass is rarely used in modding, and tat’s not fair. It’s rather cheap, it doesn’t scratch, easily mounted with any glue or with jointing compound. The only minus is that it can brake.
  From this article you’ll know how to cut, drill, saw, polish glass you'll know even how to cut it with scissors. These skills help you not only in modding, but also at home. For example, you could make an aquarium. 
  We'll need a glass-cutter for working with glass. The construction of this instrument is easy, a handle and hard-alloy cutter, in this case - a wheel. Professional glass-cutters have carbon as a cutter. It’s easy to work with glass-cutter with a carbon, almost without pushing and it’s easy for curved lines.

How to cut glass


 
  First exercise is cutting a straight line. It’s the easiest. We’ll need a ruler or wood strip, glass-cutter and, of course, glass. Ruler should be close to glass and not to drift while cutting.   Professionals stick a line of resin to it. Hold the glass-cutter precisely and make one cut. It’s important not to change effort during one cut and not to move glass-cutter. For precise cut glass-cutter wheel should be oiled with kerosene.

  After you make a line on a glass surface, start tapping. The idea of this process is in making our scratch into a serious split at all length of the glass. Using glass-cutter and a small hummer lightly hit the glass to the opposite side to the cut.

    The beginning of mine modding

The beginning of mine modding
Non-constructive thoughts about modding...

    All began when one day my neighbour, he is Automatic Control Engineer, came and started to beg me to give him one diode. When I asked him why, he typed modding in a search engine. And it had a great effect on me. I was sick about it. Maybe there is nothing accidental in the world and this modding seed fell into good soil. All my life I was interested in design.
