Stainless Steel Cutting Glass!?

Recommended Posts

Guest benjamin

I used stainless steel blade to cut tint out and later after I tinted the windows I was checking out the job with a flashlight and could see the faint outline of where I had shape cutted the film. Now is this normal? you can't see them with the nek!d eye, but shine a flash light on the window and presto there they are!!

Forget the flashlight.

Park it outside. If you can see marks you will have to deal with it. They cannot be "buffed" out.

Stainless blades will scratch glass, just not as easy as carbon blades.

I see, looks like I might have to use that plastic tip technique, cause I don't want to deal with issue anymore, good thing it's a friend of mine.

Some glass is softer than others. In my years I've learned to be more cautious with certain makes and models. :devilangel

Click a blade off every cut!! Dont push hard and dont cut over the same spot more than once. Glass will scratch but that doesnt mean its okay just be careful and when your caught be prepared to replace it!
