  1. Hell0 – I am new to the art/science/craft of glass bottle cutting, and am really excited to learn about this cool upcycling / side-cycling process. I purchased the Creator’s Kit, but am having really un-inspiring and extremely inconsistent results with it, and would like to better understand what I am doing wrong.

    One example: I have yet to experience what I’ve seen on the videos where the glass simply snaps itself off at the score after a couple rounds of the thermal shock (cold water and boiling water). I suspect that maybe the way I’m doing the scoring isn’t right, or the scoring tool wasn’t re-installed properly when it sprang out accidentally when I wasn’t holding it down properly.

    One quick piece of advice I would appreciate is WHICH side / angle of the cutting tool should be doing the cutting – I tried to figure this out by watching several videos but can’t find a good close up of that. There is writing one side of the spring mechanism, and the angle of the cutting wheel is steeper on that side if you’re rotating the bottle counter clockwise as instructed. I have a good close up but no way to add an attachment here, so hopefully you understand the issue just by the description here.

    The other thing I’ve noticed is that not all glass behaves the same way – some bottles are really a great deal thicker or denser than others and in my experience this system does not deal with that well.

    Would love to continue this conversation thread and get better at this, as I think its such a cool way to re-use glass. So if there is a better way to communicate / chat / email, that’d be great.


    1. Eric,

      Are you over scoring the bottle? You only want to score the bottle once, this simply means that you do one complete rotation with the scoring wheel and when the ends of the lines meet, you stop. Over scoring can cause all kind of problems during the separation.
