Cutting Glass tiles (moved thread)

i am considering putting some tiles on my back splash. they may be glass tiles, smaller size, 1-2".

i have a tile saw. and a diamond blade for my angle grinder.

how easy do the tiles cut ? score & snap ?

any tips ?

thanx

i was going to put it there. but glass is not floor tile.

anyway.

i understand that it cuts basicly like regular tiles. but i have never cut glass, so there may be something peculiar to it that i don't know.

I know...but you will prob get more views here. The tile guys may not look at designing bathrooms....but they've done enough backsplashes with all sorts of tiles, they should have some tips.

A wet saw with a glass blade will be your best bet.
