Can you use a ceramic tile cutter to cut glass?
You can use a tile cutter to cut glass if you can switch the blade to a glass-cutting blade that is encrusted with tiny diamonds that cut through the glass without cracking or chipping it. Work slowly to reduce the risk of damage because glass is more fragile than ceramic or porcelain tiles.
What is the best blade to cut glass tile?
Given the high cost of glass tiles and glass mosaic, when working on a bathroom or kitchen, it is always good procedure to use a professional diamond blade. If you don’t you risk spending a fair amount of money to buy the material, you may end up with a poor result due the inappropriate cutting and laying procedure.
Does glass tile cut the same as ceramic?
Cutting glass tile is fundamentally the same as cutting standard porcelain or ceramic tile. Most of the time, you can utilize the similar tools that work for regular tile, including a wet saw, score-and-snap tile pliers, and a bar cutter.
How do you manually cut glass tile?
Place the glass tile on a flat surface, face up, and draw your cut line. Then, take a straightedge and align it over your cut line. Position the scoring wheel at the far end of the tile, then pull it toward you along the straightedge to ensure an even cut.
Do tile nippers work on glass?

Can you cut mirror with a tile saw?
Redecorating your home may make a mirror too large for your new space. Instead of purchasing a new mirror, you can cut the mirror you already have to make it fit the size and shape you need. Since mirrors are basically glass with a reflective backing, you can cut them with a diamond-tipped wet saw blade.
Do I need a special blade to cut glass tile?
It’s absolutely true that you may not need a glass blade for your purposes. A regular porcelain tile saw blade will cut glass tile and some even do a pretty nice job with it. However, my personal experience is that a glass tile diamond blade does a nicer job than a regular tile saw blade.
