Ok, I admit, that was far more interesting than I expected.
 
2014-03-06 06:04:35 AM
It was interesting, but I think I will stick to my current method...give the guy in the glass shop $25 to cut and polish a custom shape.

Just what I was thinking - go Big Frank, the Silberschnitt hero.

Step One: find a guy who cuts glass for a living.

The grinding noise when the circle cut was being applied was just the absolute worst.

Next green light, how to knit using fuzzy yarn.
 
2014-03-06 08:27:38 AM
Or how to properly lubricate the lower unit of a Yamaha outboard motor.

Yep.  Very cool to watch.
 
2014-03-06 08:41:05 AM
well ok then.
 
2014-03-06 08:44:47 AM
In a previous life I was a glazier. We didn't have a tapper like that there German tapper thingy. That's pretty cool.

I've seen this done in the movies, these guys go through way to much work.

Once around with a glass cutting tool, and out pops a perfect circle.  It is best done while hanging upside down by a rope.  Then you can just swing in and make off with the loot.
 
2014-03-06 08:51:51 AM
good find subby, quite interesting.

FTFY. :)

Great, now everyone who wants a big glass circle will expect it to be done in six minutes, in much the same fashion as a kitchen remodel in 48 minutes.
 
2014-03-06 10:11:49 AM
I want to see the outtakes where he gets halfway around and it cracks through the center...or the other guy slips and drops it...
 
2014-03-06 10:44:02 AM
I need to see if the narrator of that video does other stuff. Was a nice voice, kind of started to put me to sleep.
 
2014-03-06 11:09:41 AM
Video needs more Zilberschnidt.
 
2014-03-06 11:13:52 AM
Now I can't stop saying "Zilberschnidt"!!
 
2014-03-06 11:21:38 AM
Flat glass? Meh, that's no challenge. There is no stress on the glass.

Well, it's not a repeat (surprisingly)
So there's that...
I guess...

ArtosRC: The grinding noise when the circle cut was being applied was just the absolute worst.


I was just thinking how strangely satisfying the sound was - it didn't have the high pitch nails+chalkboard aspect to it.  It was like cutting really thick paper on a Dahle cutter.
 
2014-03-06 12:39:30 PM
I actually found that pretty fascinating (considering that my alternative is to start working). But the best part of the video is watching Big Frank straightening back up after being bent over to use that tapper on the underside of the glass.

Easy on the sauerbraten there, Big Frank.

I wonder how many sewing machines you have to squeeze to get that much oil.

I once watched a guy kill 3 windshields trying to chop 3" from the glass for a late 50's chevy truck.  He finally got it.

Dude needs to rethink the whole "wearing a tie while I cut giant circles of glass" thing. It's OK dude, it's 2014, nobody's gonna keel-haul ya if you dare show your face on a promotional video without a tie that you have to keep out of the way of your professional equipment there.

Wow, I saw that on TV years ago.

Ok,... "an american, a frenchman and a certain ethnic person were captured by Indians.  The Indians said, 'We're going to kill you, cook you and turn your skin into canoes. What is your last request?'  The american asks for a cigarette.  He smokes and then they kill him, cook him and turn his skin into a canoe.  The frenchman asks for a meal.  He eats and then they kill him, cook him and turn his skin into a canoe.   The certain ethnic person asks for a fork.  They give him the fork and he starts stabbing himself.  'To hell with your canoes!'"
 
2014-03-06 04:54:45 PM
I'll be damned... the stuff I find interesting.  Shouldn't we be looking at boobies or something?  It's the interenet.  Geez.

/Also, I bet anyone with the nickname "Big Frank" would be fun to hang out with in his home city.
 
2014-03-06 05:08:08 PM
i will just keep using rocks til i get it just right
 
2014-03-06 05:25:30 PM
Just bust the hell out of it and glue back the pieces you want to keep... done in like 1/4th the time. Plus; You're hipster n shiat!

I watched this video on mute, with Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight" playing in the background.

Sewing Machine Oil = Mineral Oil.

If you ever find yourself with an opportunity to cut cyanoacrylics, works wonders for maintaining perfect clarity in the plastic during and after the cut. On a lathe, anyway.

Another vote for going to a glass shop and ordering the type of glass, thickness and diameter.

Come back in two days, pick up part.
 
2014-03-06 09:15:06 PM
I knew that

That comes from a harmonics unit on the suction cup... a theory Mythbusters pretty much killed (but should maybe look at).

The thought is that on the thinner dustproofing glass you can get a pop-wave to propagate and break the score line.

I used to cut oval glass for picture frames.  Honestly, they pointed out some good ideas, I wished I knew.  It was rare to get a cut as perfect as they got on the first try.

I usually just use Reese Witherspoon's chin.

I'll admit, I clicked because I like heist movies and they are always doing cool cat-burglar type glass cutting stuff in them.

But something about that video was compelling, even though it was a very dry, technical video of instruction. Maybe it was the narrator's voice or something else, but damn, it was good and I couldn't stop watching.

Always liked the look of chipped jade glass.
