Glass

1. Use a specific glass blade that is high quality and is made with a very fine and uniform diamond grain.

2. Thoroughly clean the surfaceon which the glass tile or glass mosaic will be placed Even a small piece of glass or dirt might be enough to prevent the diamond blade from operating correctly. This is especially if you use a tile cutter with a fixed blade that you slide the tiles on a sliding tray. The tray surface can be easily cleaned with plain water.

3. Dress the blade before cutting: Unless brand new, many diamond blades are not ready to cut glass. It is easy to dress the cutting edge by using a UDT dressing stone ( see more here). Do not use concrete blocks to sharpen your blades this could damage the blade irreparably. A well dressed blade will increase the speed of cut and will reduce cutting vibrations considerably.

4. Use plenty of water when cutting glass: If you have a tile cutter with the ability to regulate the water flow that goes on to the blade, make sure that the flow is adjusted to the maximum. Overheated glass tends to crack and chip easily so use a lot of water to cool down both the diamond blade and the glass.

5. Make sure that the cutting process is not too slow If the glass blade you are using is of high quality, it will be possible to cut glass fairly quickly, thus reducing both the vibration and the risk of chipping. If you have a glass blade of medium-low quality, the only thing that can be suggested is the use of a lot of water although the result still won't be perfect.

Once you have completed the cut, never forget that you are dealing with glass  and handle it with great care, paying special attention to the corners, which are particularly fragile and can be sharp.
