    I recently purchased a beetle bits cutting system and am having trouble when breaking the scores I make.  I can’t seem to break the glass with running pliers, like I have in the past.  The glass definitely has a good score line on it so I’m not sure what the problem is.  Any advice would be appreciated!  Thanks :-)

    I love the Beetle bits system.  I did find that I had to adjust my cutting a little.  I found that I was letting up just at the end of the score instead of constant pressure until the end.   I didn’t realize that I was doing it until I really looked at my score line.  The end was fainter due to less pressure.

    Well, it really hinges on what you consider a good score line to look like.  For me it is one that is barely visible.  The most common problem is too much pressure while scoring.  You could look at my glass tips blog (using the search term scoring glass) or even better, look at the Bullseye document – imporving your class cutting at:
