Reading "...& final cut" and then seeing all the nicely embossed but unfortunately neck-busted hutches, I thought "final cut" was going to show us a lineup of bottles converted to drinking glasses :D!

Curious what you cut them with? I think it was Robby Bobby who had some expert advice on methods to smooth out/polish the edges. LEON.

i have just cut these 3 one hutch and 2 crown bottle
Nice!

Thanks for posting that followup:D.

The bottle cutter that was advertised on TV in the late 1960's or early 70's came with a few squares of sandpaper for smoothing the cut rims. I'm not sure of the compound, but I believe it was aluminum oxide type as the paper was quite dark per my memory. I've always heard and read that the best way to smooth cut glass was fire polishing, though I would not want to risk it myself on any treasured item.

I suspect that there are many tutorials on YouTube demonstrating more than one method of smoothing cut bottle rims--good luck.

Please post again with further results!
