A Last Resort Technique for Difficult to Break Glass Pieces.
Tapping underneath a score line.
NOTE: Tapping a score line may cause small chips and fractures along the score line and should be done only as a last resort on difficult-to-break pieces. Here’s how to do it.
1 Hold the glass close to the surface of the worktable. Using the ball at the end of the cutter, gently strike the glass from the underside, directly underneath the score line. Once the score begins to “run,” continue tapping ahead of the “run” until it reaches the other end of the score line.
2 With your hands or a pair of pliers, separate the glass into 2 pieces.
