Here is a bottle cutter that I made to cut pop bottles into drinking glasses. I used a couple scrap pieces of 3/4 plywood, some shower door rollers and a cheap glass cutter from Lowes. Small angle iron was scrap from work. To cut a bottle, #1 adjust the back to make it the length that you want and then #2 just spin bottle over glass cutter till bottle is scored all the way around. After that is done #3 pour boiling water on the score line evenly all the way around and then switch to cold water and back and forth a few times till the top falls off. Bottle should then be sanded with some fine wet/dry sandpaper so it is not sharp. And now you have a pretty cool drinking glass!
