Having the right tool for the job is essential to whatever task you have at hand. Imagine having the right tool show up in your mail box!
When the Creator’s Bottle Neck Cutter (CBNC) arrived I was more than excited to test it right away. I’ve seen the ‘Hurricane Lamps’ on the Pinterest boards for awhile now and it always came down to asking ‘How did they do that?’
Finding the right device to take the neck off of glass bottles was what Ray from Creator’s Stained Glass Inc. pondered before creating this new device.
Straightforward, easy to use, you’ll be cutting off bottle necks in no time. A tightening screw set on the side allows you to adjust the height that you want and then lock that position in. This bottle cutter will come in handy if you are doing a continuous succession of similar bottles.
Holding the CBNC with one hand allows you to rotate the bottle around with your other hand. Keeping a constant downward pressure while slowly rotating the bottle. I could visually see my score line while cutting. Note: Being able to see how far along you have made your score prevents you from over scoring.
Finishing – Taking a light wet sand paper to the edges is highly recommended. Little shards are usually left behind and you want your edges to be smooth, not only for the end user, but for the look of your project as well. The separation on these score lines was so precise that you really don’t need to spend a lot of time sanding your edges.
Creator’s Bottle Neck Cutter Review Summary
I literally took this tool out of the box and shot the complimentary video that coincides with this post. It was that easy! By using the hot/cold method to separate my score line the whole process took less than five minutes. This time included heating the water, and the sanding as well.
This Bottle Neck Cutter is made of thick, impact resistant Lexan plastic and a high quality carbide cutting head. It is a must-have for anyone who does craft work that involves glass cutting. You will be pleasantly surprised to find a clean and consistent separation for all your glass scoring and separating, even when working with tapered bottles.
All of Creator’s Stained Glass Inc. products are Made in the U.S.A.
