Laminated Glass - Cutting

Cutting

Plastic interlayers in laminated glass make its cutting difficult. There is an unsafe practice of cutting both sides separately, pouring a flammable liquid such as denatured alcohol into the crack, and igniting it to melt the interlayer to separate the pieces. The following safer methods are recommended.

  • Special purpose laminated cutting tables
  • Vertically-inclined saw frames
  • A blowlamp or hot air blower.

    Alvah Bessie, Ranald MacDougall, and Lester Cole. Raoul Walsh. Nameless GI, Objective Burma, cutting dog tags off a dead GI (1945)

    What makes the pain we feel from shame and jealousy so cutting is that vanity can give us no assistance in bearing them.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Simply because our times are complex, does it follow that our parenting must also be? Must we reject the common sense that what worked so well in the past just because our times are high-tech? We live in such fear of being called “old-fashioned” that we are cutting ourselves off from that which is proven.
    Fred G. Gosman (20th century)
