    Unhappy GLASS CUTTER needed

    I'm having bubble trouble since adding my new skimmer[BIG!] so I have to add baffles to sump. Anyone have one of those glass cutters around. Even the cheapos from HOMEDEPOT might work.

    HomeDepot will charge ya a $1/cut.... small price to pay for perfect straight cuts I think...

    Remember my drop in baffle-box thread? hehehe Go check it out. I'm sure you remember what I ended up doing so that I didn't have to dismantle the sump...

    DOH!

    Sorry dude, they don't cut glass, they cut plexi-glass...

    Here's the link, scroll down, and you'll see how I ended up using white lighting eggcrate to hold the baffles...

    how big do you need to cut ? if its just a 1mm or 2 i suggest a dremel with arm extension. and a grinding bit.. works like magic

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.
