Please have available before you start: Our Premium Bottle Cutter; Safety Goggles (or sunglasses or eye protectors);
1- Adjust screws and move parts so the bottle can rest properly on machine;
2- Adjust depth of machine so the cutting wheel is at the desired location on the bottle;
3- Once the bottle is resting on the machine, apply pressure with your hands; make ONE complete circle only against the cutting wheel;
4- Take the bottle off the machine, light a candle and heat up the score mark on the bottle (some people also like to use hot and cold water - try it if you like). Once the whole etching mark is sufficiently hot, immediately rub the score with an ice cube;
5- Using both hands, snap the 2 parts of the bottle and use a sanding paper to smooth out the glass edges.
The whole process takes less than 5 minutes.
CAUTION: YOU ARE WORKING WITH GLASS, USE EXTREME CARE WHEN HANDLING!!
Scoring the glass creates a weak point. The heat expands the area and the cooling causes a the separation. When your friends ask how you did it, you can give them an answer to blow their minds - Thermodynamics.
