slicing/cutting glass rods
I would like to slice/cut bullseye glass rods to use in fused glass projects. Is there a way to get even slices, like a coin? I have tried mosaic nippers without much success, most slices are lopsided. (Could be user error) The slices could be 1/4 inch and up. Also, has anyone used or heard of hot wire to cut glass? Would this work? Is there a better tool for the job? Thanks for any ideas.
If you have a taurus 2 or 3 it is easy to slice even slices but I gather from your question that you don’t have a diamond saw.(only way I know to get even slices).
I have heard of the string applied around an empty bottle ignited and then submerging in cold water or tapping the score but can’t imagine doing that with a glass rod.
