This glass cutter is often referred to as a mosaic glass and tile cutter. The glass nipper has two precision cutting wheels that come together when pressure is applied to the handles, breaking the glass into small pieces. These cutters are also used to cut glass stringers into manageable lengths. The wheels are replaceable which makes this a tool for life.
Please use care when cutting glass. Wear safety glasses to protect your eyes and be aware of the sharp edges on the glass pieces which might cut your finger when handled.
