To get a nice clean cut:
Lightly score the glass making sure you don't go too far past where you first start the cut.
Pour boiling water directly onto the cut. Rotate the bottle as you pour and try to keep the water just on the cut and not splash all over the bottle. Do this for 15-20 seconds.
Quickly put the bottle under a cold running tap. Cool the bottle almost completely. #TIP: put a towel in the bottom of sink so the bottle doesnt smash when it snaps off.
If the bottle hasn't snapped, repeat with hot and then cold water again until it does.
File any sharp edges with some wet & dry sanding paper. Start with a course grain and move to finer grain for the best finish.
The trick is to use a light touch. The instructions warn that too deep a score will not fracture easily. A glass 'cutter' does not actually cut the glass it just lightly scratches it so it breaks a certain way when you stress it by plunging it into hot and cold water. There will be a certain amount of failure, even if you do everything right. Glass is tricky. This is not cutting, it is controlled breaking.
I found that the hot water method only works for small bottles and bottle necks. I shattered four large bottles trying to get them to separate with the hot and cold water method. For large bottles I had more success using the tapper that came with the kit. You need to tap the cut from inside the bottle, tapping on the outside doesn't work.
I found the device easy to assemble. (It does require "some assembly".) The instructions were clear and detailed.
I'm very pleased with this product.
1. Oil and score the bottle. Hold firm, but it's about finesse. Start at seam so you know where to stop.
2. Dunk in pot of boiled water (boiling water in pot put in sink, see photo) Twirl so entire score line is heated for about 20-30 seconds and you should hear tinkling sound of cracking.
3. Dunk in bucket of ice water. Here is where it should really crack. Leave in 20-30 seconds and put back in hot water. It should fall off the bottom here, but repeat a few times if not.
If this three-step process didn't work I found it was better to scrap the bottle and start over. If I needed to use the tapper it seems like I got a rough edge.
This was really fun and I was amazed how clean of cuts I got on some of the bottles! I would definitely recommend for the price point it's worth it.
