Cutting Depression Glass Plates
by: Valerie Lowich Iskierka

Sue is right. I use a Taurus ring saw to cut depression glass plates into pieces. It keeps a continuous flow of water on the glass, which keeps the glass from getting too hot. Also keeps the glass dust down, because you sure don't want to breathe that nasty stuff in. I wear a mask. There are other saws on the market, but I think the Taurus is more durable, and with various blades it is quite versatile. Please post some pics of your work, we'd love to see them.
