I was wondering if anyone has information on cutting fused glass bar with a wet tile saw. I was looking at Lowes and found a Skil wet tile saw with tile diamond blade, I am wondering if this will cut glass bar?March 4, 2011 at 11:37 pm #11963VernelleParticipant
I got a wet tile saw from Lowes but don’t remember the brand, was not an expensive one. With the diamond blade I have been able to cut fused glass pattern bars.March 30, 2011 at 8:37 pm #11964two hands and fireParticipant
Can you do it with a Ring Saw? Pattern bars are on my “gotta try” list, and I was about to start searching for the best method to cut them, myself!March 31, 2011 at 5:01 am #11965VernelleParticipant
Is it a ring saw for glass? I have the old Diamond Tech. ring saw that had a fusing blade on it that I have used to cut pattern bars with. But the tile saw is quicker.April 30, 2011 at 1:56 pm #11966wordanaParticipant
A ring saw removes a lot of glass material, and I imagine cutting thick pattern bars is hard on the blade.
We have a tile saw (that came from Lowes) and I keep meaning to try to find a diamond blade for it. Of course you only think of those things at inconvenient times, not when your at Lowes

Habor Frieght sales tile saw at a cheaper price. Remember to watch the trickness of the bars you want to cut. The small tile saw only cut just over a inch.May 2, 2011 at 3:28 pm #11968bhawbakerParticipant
I have a cheap Ryobi tile saw. I purchased a glass blade from Home Depot for about $30. It works well for cutting pattern bars, which are too thick for my ring saw. And the blades are cheaper.May 4, 2011 at 1:33 am #11969wordanaParticipant
I’ll have to check out Home Depot. Wish we had a Harbor Freight. I have started to order on-line from them several times, but haven’t. I just need to bite the bullet, because it would be nice to have a cheap supplier of diamond blades and drill bits.
