"I have ( at last) been successful in cutting glass properly after many previous poor attempts. This little cutter is just what you need for a swift, safe and precision cut. If you have confidence in a product you generally use it well and this is the case with the Vitrex. It's cheap, yes and cheerful, but it does the business! Anyone who has yet to make clean and precise cuts in glass needs to try this out!
I reckon it will save me many hours of frustration, and plenty of cash using salvaged glass which would otherwise go to waste."
"A standard pattern glass cutter with 6 cutting wheels. Feels well balanced in the hand and when used with a straight edge scores the glass in one pass using steady pressure. I use a pencil under the score line and pressure on each side of the score achieves a good clean break. Good value for money. Should give good service over a long period."
"bought this to cut a glass upstand. I found the scoring difficult to pinpoint at first but after some practice cuts this tool cut the glass cleanly. i'd recommend watching some youtube clips to get the hang of it. you don't need to press too hard, but you want to hear a 'ripping' sound."
"I have been delighted with every other purchase I have made at Scewfix over the years but this glass cutter was of absolutely no use whatsoever as it fell to bits before it made much impression on the glass."
"i got this to cut some glass for a panle door, worst thing ever from screwfix and i have been shopping with them for some time, it made a mess on the glass then when i came to popping it the glass shattered, so not only down the price of this but also a pane of glass, do not buy this cutter"
"I bought this as a replacement as I couldn't find my trusty glass cutter. I was tempted by the price and thought that this could get me through cutting ONE pane of glass to finish the job I was doing. I should have known better. First, it is a plastic affair. When I went to cut the glass, the cutting head moved on me, which to be fair, I should have checked/ tightened before I used. Not everything that you buy works straight out of the box! But it did not cut. And it made a mess of the glass pane. Sorry screwfix, but this is just cheap rubbish."
