Oil fed glass cutter


Ian kindly made the frame for right or

left-handed workers.

We started by getting

used to cutting glass.

1. Position the rule.

2. Cut with one firm

motion, listen for

the grinding noise.

3. A brisk tap

encourages the

glass to break.


We prepared the template for our

practise window.


We sometimes had to grind the edge

of the glass pieces.

When all the glass

and lead was cut

we soldered the

joints.


The next challenge was to make our

own design.


We had a great time

and learnt new skills.
