    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?

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
