Cutting glass tile using the score and snap method.

Sharing buttons:

okay so I've had a couple of people ask

me how to cut our tiles here and the

easiest way that I always recommend is

to use what we call a scorn snap method

so scorn snap method basically use a

glass scoring tool with a carbide wheel

and what that does is you put a scratch

in the top surface of the glass and that

allows you to break the glass the

easiest way to do it is to grab your

tile grab something straight like a

ruler there we'll just use another tile

and simply score the top surface from

end to end not too hard not too tight at

that point what you can do is take

something soft here we have just a piece

of neoprene foam it can be foam it can

be a piece of fabric it can be something

just to give it a little bit of height

and what you do is you put it underneath

you line the score mark on top of it

press the tile down on both sides and

away you go and you'll get a perfect

clean break every single time and this

works for a number of different breaks

this this break was pretty much you know

half and half if you get breaks where

you would like to for example a longer

tile like this and you want to cut it in

half you're going to need a scoring

braking tool similar to this and these

tools are available at your local glass

shop towel shop amazon ebay that kind of

stuff they're about 20 bucks a piece so

it's not too much of a cost so but if

you have a long piece like this you can

even you can break that in half as well

simply by using the same process of

scoring it in half and this one's kind

of quite thin so might not work

boom and you can cut it just snap it in

half and away you go and that should get

you through most of your cuts
