I am sure that many Amateur automakers in the manufacture of machines are faced with the problem of glazing of the body. Most of them come of the situation, “tied” to the size and shape of automotive glass, used in used on production models. I dare to undertake the furnishing of “jeep” glass type laminated glass cut at the required dimensions independently. This used the diamond cutter. On both sides of the triplex drew them risks which rattled up to the appearance of a crack along the entire length. Then remove the part warmed by the flame of a spirit lamp. Connecting the layers of the laminated film was reheated, which allowed us to pull pieces of glass to. tion between the gap. Then I have to cut the film with a sharp knife, and the uneven glass edges to be dulled with sandpaper.
This method is quite easy and productive; but it is only good for those who have a great experience the usual glass works, only an experienced master can give a guarantee that when tapping, the crack will go in the right direction. Therefore, ruining a few glasses, I went through a more complex way, produced the improvised special machine.
The use of the machine allows not only to minimize the reject rate, but to cut glass with a small curvature. For use not need special qualifications. The only drawback — low productivity, but in terms of the unit of production, it does not matter.
