I'm not at all sure I have a clue what you meant by your description. Were the circles ragged or the edges of the break out cuts? Did you clean the glass before you cut it? Old glass simply has more opportunity to pick up dirt on the surface.KenKant wrote:I tried to cut some circles , using a circle cutter. I used my regular Toyo cutter to run a few scores from the circle to the edge of the glass. When I tried to use the runner the glass broke in ragged lines not planned for, resulting in a lot of unusable glass pieces. I have had the glass for almost a year before trying to use it. Any idea as to why I had such unplanned for breaks?
KenKant wrote:Your suggestions sound intriguing. For me, the glass broke away from the circle in the opposite direction from my score, i.e., the glass broke toward the circle o.k., but then continued on past the circle to the farthest edge. I tried tapping underneath the circle score line, but that didn't help (Not hard enough?) The glass was still in the shipping case covered by the protector sheets. Dirt may have been a factor. I didn't think to clean the glass first. The torch sounds a bit scary. I will try some of your suggestions. Thanks.
