99.999999999999% of the folks here are experienced in glass work. you might want to check the FAQ page to see what's ok to post and what's frowned on. I'm sure your post is ok but it is nice to know what the FAQ are and who everyone is here and what they do.

Saw a couple of things that might need changing 1. " The novice needs minimal practice to develop a feel for scoring and breaking out." Minimal practice??? Not in my experience of teaching. although some people seem to 'cotton on' quickly more than half need lots of practice to 'develop the feel'. 2. "The traditional way to hold the glass cutter is between index and middle fingers with the thumb and index finger on the flat spots of the cutter handle. This will be ideal for the best control and vision." It may be the traditional way to hold the old style of cutter but not I would suggest the way to hold every other type of cutter! Why no mention of how to hold other cutters than the oldfashioned cutter? Imagine holding a pistol grip cutter between the index and middle finger?!?
Apart from that I would not hesitate to direct enquirers to your page for info if they couldnt get into our shop or visit an experienced glasscutter for help and advice. Elizabeth in UK
