Procedures That Uses Fire For Bottle Glass Cutting.
The neck and the mouth of a bottle is usually slender than the other part of the body. By cutting of a stream of molten glass from sheet glass or from glass container glass with a clipping blade a glass cylinders is formed using either the blow and blow process or the press and blow technique which is known as a gob. When the manufacture of the bottles is completed, they are distributed among different uses like storage of perfumes and drinks.
Bottles that were initially used to store drinks can be modified by cutting glass bottle to form a glass that can be used to store pens, drink or as a vase in several ways some of them being:
Heating them under a flame. The first step is to create a line where you would like the bottle to cut off at using glass bottle cutter tool such as a glass cutter or a glass grill. Secondly, heat the glass along the line you created in a direct flame from a small candle or a small butane torch while constantly rotating it to ensure even distribution of heat. After 5 minutes of heating, one can dip the end of the bottle they want to cut off in a sink or a pot full of water or ice. Sometimes the bottle require more than one round of heating and cooling, so repeat the process until the bottle cuts off. Finally, rub the edges of the glass immediately after it breaks, to avoid cutting yourself. With a square sand paper and then with a finer grit sandpaper.
Use of a yarn to cut a bottle.
Wrap a piece of yarn or a thick cotton string around the bottle 3-5 times at the area where you would like the bottle to break, tie the ends together and cut the excesses. Slide the yarn or cotton string off the bottle, put it on a dish, pour nail polish remover or straight-up acetone over the yarn until it is completely soaked and then the excesses into the bottle. Secondly, remove the yarn or cotton string from the bottle gently, place it on a dish and pour nail polish remover or straight-up acetone over the yarn until it is completely soaked and the excesses into the bottle. Place the yarn back to the area of the break off with the loops of the yarn close together and tight so that you get a level and clean break. Rotate the bottle slowly after lighting the yarn on fire so that the yarn burns at a consistent speed around the entire bottle. Put the bottle end you want in a sink or a pot filled with cold water after the yarn is burnt out. Sand the edges with a rough sandpaper to smooth and then with a finer grit sandpaper.
