i recall reading ways alchemists would cut glass by dipping string in combustible salts and tying it around the glass where they wanted the break and igniting it. this would be much easier.

FANTASTIC!!!!!

The "string" method (which I tried using a LOT of alternatives) only gave me a rate of success that is less than 10%.... and a lot of failures... and even the "successes" were far from being amazing because it's very hard to end up with a straight cut. Amazing how this simple alternative seems to work better... I'm definitely going to use this one next time I need to cut a bottle or any large piece of rounded glass.

Thank you.
