My son saw this on QVC yesterday (I have no idea why a 15 year old is watching QVC...): http://www.qvc.com/asp/frameset.asp...SQ&frames=y&referrer=QVC&txtDesc=Glass+Cutter (appears to be framed... it's item # V14914).

I would love to make my own enclosures. I cut my own glass routinely, but till now have only cut thinner "window replacement" glass.

Obviously, a vivarium needs to be made of something a little thicker.

Anyone have any opinion on the tool referenced here? It was cutting thicker glass as easily as cheese yesterday on their show. But I still doubt that it can cut thick glass that easily.

On the other hand, it is not that expensive so it might be worth giving it a shot.

All comments welcome, thanks.

glass cutter

i would think twice on a utensil that would cut my glass and screening with the same tool. i have a toyo glass cutter, which is for stained glass. but so far have just used it on standard window glass.

i find that thick glass cuts more consistently then thinner glass,
i personally like cutting 3/8-1/4 inch glass far more then 1/8,
thinner glass is just too unpredicatable, any good scoring tool
and oil will cut thin glass and thick glass the same though...
