Cutting Glass Strips

Here are some tips for cutting glass strips for fusing.  The emphasis is on cutting narrow strips, 3/8" (9cm) or thereabouts.

This first section of tips deals with the glass you're cutting:

1.  If you're inexperienced, start with transparents, then move to opaques as your experience level and confidence grows.  Don't tackle really tough glasses (such as white) without some previous strip cutting experience.

2.  Remember that to cut best each type and thickness of glass requires a different amount of pressure.  Practice will help you realize which pressure level works best for the glass you're cutting.

3.  Clean the glass. It's easier to cut clean glass than dirty glass.
