Glass Cutter Oiling Glass

A glass cutter is a tool designed for scoring or cutting glass surfaces, typically used in glass working or home improvement projects. It consists of a small, sharp wheel or blade that is often made of hardened steel or carbide. The user applies pressure to the cutter while rolling it across the surface of the glass, creating a controlled score or cut. This process weakens the glass along the scored line, allowing for precise breaks or cuts.

“Oiling glass” refers to a technique used in conjunction with a glass cutter. Some glass cutters have a reservoir for oil, and a small amount of oil is applied to the surface of the glass before scoring. This lubricates the cutter wheel and helps to reduce friction, resulting in a smoother and more accurate cut. The oil also helps prevent the cutter wheel from overheating and extends its lifespan. Additionally, the oil can aid in the separation of the glass along the scored line when breaking it, ensuring a cleaner and more controlled break.
