    Where buy glass or have it cut?

    Does anyone know of a good place to get glass cut and a good place to buy glass?
    I have tried M&T and Mcfarlen but their price are a bit high at $12-15 per cut for thick glass. And their prices on glass were more than a bit too high.

    Brown & Macfarlane are who I usually recommend, but there's at least a dozen in the phone book if you want to shop around.

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    If you can speak french I would recommend Vitrie 2000 in gatineau. I had them cut and build my coast to coast overflow. I also had them drill 6 holes in my tank. It didn't cost me much and they did a great job.

    Thanks for all the responces. I ended up getting the glass cut at M&T. They were $2.5 per cut cheaper than Brown & Macfarlane and they could do it on the spot. I Generally find though that M&T is too expensive and if you are looking to buy glass, try Brown & Macfarlane first as Krugar suggested.
