There are a few methods that all have varying degrees of success..Be careful! Wear glasses and gloves.:smileywink:

 

 

Method 1: Hot Water

  1. Score a line around the bottle with any glass cutting type tool like a glass cutter, glass drill bit, etc.
  2. Pour very hot water over the scored line until the bottle is hot.
  3. Immediately dip the bottle in a bucket of very cold water until you hear a popping sound.
  4. You may have to repeat the process a couple of times.

 

 

Method 2: Candle

  1. Score a line around the bottle with any glass cutting type tool like a glass cutter, glass drill bit, etc.
  2. Roll the bottle over a candle flame until it is hot.
  3. Immediately dip the bottle in a bucket of very cold water until you hear a popping sound.
  4. You may have to repeat the process a couple of times.

 

 

Method 3: Dremel

  1. Wrap a piece of masking tape around the bottle.
  2. Draw a line over the tape where you want to cut.
  3. Use a dremel tool with a glass cutting attachment to cut around the bottle.

 

After the bottle has separated - you can sand the rough edges with sandpaper.
