How to Cut a Glass Coffee Pot
Cutting a glass coffee pot can be tricky but with the right tools and safety precautions, it can be done quickly and easily. Here are the steps to follow when cutting a glass coffee pot using a traditional glass cutter.
- Glass cutter
- Protective glasses
- Protective gloves
- Cutter oil
- Glass vice
- Put on your protective glasses and gloves before you start. This is to protect you from flying glass particles.
- Clamp the glass coffee pot into a glass vice. This will allow you to create a straight, clean cut.
- Apply some oil onto your glass cutter. This will ensure that the blade of the cutter will glide smoothly over the surface of the pot.
- Score the glass along the desired line. Move the cutter in a straight line with gentle pressure.
- After scoring the pot, remove it from the glass vice. Place the scored line over the edge of a hard surface, such as a kitchen countertop.
- Apply pressure to both sides of the glass and break the pot along the scored line.
- Place the newly cut pieces of glass into a bin and dispose of them carefully.
- Always wear protective glasses and gloves when cutting glass.
- Make sure that the surface on which the glass will be cut is stable and secure.
- Never apply too much pressure when scoring. This can cause the glass to shatter unexpectedly.
- Always score the glass from one side to the other in one continuous motion.
