soapbarstrat Posted January 18, 2004 Report Share Posted January 18, 2004 I sent the StewMac 16" sanding bar back, because it wasn't as flat as my old 'donnell fret and fingerboard plane'. But this fingerboard plane is only 13.5" long. I have a bunch of 1/4" thick glass that turns out to be very flat (even a little more flat than the ground surface of stewmacs sanding bars). I want to make my own stewmac style sanding bars by gluing glass to a piece of wood or something. I need to cut pieces of this thick glass to 18"-19" long and 1" wide. Can't get a piece that long to turn out. I got a nice 8" long x 1" wide, so far. I have a glass cutter, and have had luck cutting small pieces of this thick glass, but no luck getting an 18" long piece to turn out. It ends up breaking in half, etc. I can't figure out how to cut off such a narrow strip of glass off the bigger piece. Not even expecting any help here with this, because it's unlikely that most of you have even cut glass this thick. I found some sites, that have a few different methods, but so far no luck when I try myself. So, any advice is appreciated. Rob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
