I’ve been having trouble with some miter cuts and now after fooling with it so much my glass is 1/16” too big. I kind of remember hearing about someone using a belt sander to make glass fit.
If you have a scrap piece of glass try the saw and let us know how it works. If you don't have any scrap glass I have a cheap HF tile saw I could try it. Another option you might consider is to use a sharp chisel and mortise the wood out to insert 1/16" into the wood. It could be done where the glass stop would cover it.I was just thinking and I have tile wet saw with a diamond blade. Do you think that will work for glass?
i'd buy a new piece and save that one for later use.Well my old Red Devil glass cutter doesn’t look very good and this is what they sell at HD. Lowe's has even worst looking ones, but I’ve never seen a really good one and really don’t know how to judge. I looked on line for reviews and I don’t know if I can trust them unless I knew for sure they were written by professionals.
So I think I’m just going to buy another piece of cut glass only I have to wait until I can get out of town because the Lowe’s closest to me can’t cut a square piece. Their machine is out of alignment and the difference can be a lot depending on the size of cut. I had a 22” long piece cut and the width was 7/32” difference from one side to the other.
I’ve told them about it a few different times but they just point to the sign that says “No Exact Cuts”. Now if I worked there, I’d borrow a framing square from tools and fix it. It’s just a matter of loosening a couple of bolts, squaring it up and tightening it from what I can see.
