I am attempting to re-size my current mirror and I am unable to cut the mirror. I bought, and used, a glass cutter but it only leaves the score mark and won't snap. The mirror is 3/16- 1/4 inch thick. Any help is appreciated

It sounds like you have the basic steps to cutting the mirror down. Make sure you are wearing safety glasses and gloves when attempting this. When you use your glass cutter make sure you start at on edge and when you roll it on your mark it should make a zipping and crunching sound. The mark made with the cutting tool should be visible. Put the mirror on a completely flat surface with the scrap piece hanging over the edge. With one hand hold the mirror down and the other will push down on the scrap piece to break it off. If this isn’t working you might be cutting too small of a piece off or you aren’t applying equal pressure. -Gregg
