i want to make a couple slides today and was woundering what saw to use to cut the neck off, or should i break it and sand it down for a couple hours
#2
I think people use something like a rotary saw (dremel?), then run it under hot/cold water, and then change it to cold/hot water (i forget which), and then the glass should crack under the quick temperature change.

there's a tutorial online somewhere if you're interested, google it

score the glass really good hold the part you wanna keep... either in a rag covered vice or whatever and tap the top of it with a rag covered tool and it should break right off, you will have to sand it
#4
get a glass cutter and cut around the base of the neck and hit the bottle off of a piece of wood. thats what i did.

Hot water to cold water. I don't know if that would break both ends of the bottle however.

Do you want a gold star or something?


Using a saw wouldn't work for the most part. I could only see the teeth, and the finest of them, catching and destroying the bottle.

There are glass cutting devices that cut from the inside of the bottle. There is a "blade" that reaches down into the bottle neck, and you spin it around as it scores the inside of the bottle. Then, hit the large end with something, and it should break off. Then start sanding!

actualy if you use the glass cutter first , and a hack saw has teeth that are barely able to see, so it pretty much had nothing to catch it

The best I've ever done is taken a plastic bottle, melted a hole in it with a lighter, taken one of those pesky foil/papers from a cigarette pack, poked holes in that and voila! Pipe-si.
