Anyone know about cutting thin glass in unusual shape?
« on: March 13, 2019, 08:25:20 PM »
I have a couple of very nice meters that I earmarked for a PYE limiter project.   Unfortunately my young (at the time) deaf Basset hound "Maurice" (see pic) managed to smash one.

He broke the bakelight housing which I have tried to glue back together, but he also broke the glass which is about 1 or 2mm thick & has some difficult to cut curves in it.  I can't see a way to cut this, but don't really want to replace with plastic.

Any ideas ?
regards Rob

If you know any stained glass people, they could do that easily by cutting and grinding to the final shape.

Thanks for the tip, I do actually know someone who is very good at stained glass.  Will send them a message.

Waterjets cut glass nicely.

If the deaf Bassett Hound can mix records I wouldn’t be surprised if he could do it.

Rob, I have a bunch of ye olde meters of every shape and size, of many different brands. I may be able to save you the trouble and send you a matching housing/glass. Got a pic of the meter?

Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.
