The Importance of Taking Care of Your Stained Glass Equipment

Your glass cutter, an essential tool, is the one tool you constantly use and needs to work properly to insure proper and accurate cutting.   One of the easiest and important things you need to do with your cutter is store it in a container partially filled with lubricant that covers the bottom of the jar and the wheel. It’s a good idea to pad the bottom of the jar with a piece of cloth or paper towel wet grinder
. This will keep the cutter wheel lubricated and avoid   the wheel from freezing which can ruin the cutter. Never leave the cutter sitting out on your workbench. It is a good idea to get into the habit of putting the cutter back into the storage jar each time you finish cutting.

Glass lubricant is an oil that is usually a mixture of kerosene and light oil. The lubricant cleans off little slivers of glass that tend to cling to the wheel. These slivers of glass can interfere with the rotation of the wheel. Another advantage of the lubricant is how it helps prevent score lines from sealing. A bottle of this lubricant can be purchased at your local stained glass retail store, it is inexpensive and will last for a long time.

When you score stained glass, don’t go over score lines. This will dull the wheel. Always dip the wheel in lubricant before each score if it is not self-lubricating. Running your wheel off the edge of the glass will shorten its life, too. Stop your score 1/8″ from the glass edge.
