Cutting cups in half

Posted by texasfern (My Page) on

I know I have done this before, but for the life of me I cannot remember.
I do not have a saw, seems like I used wheeled cutters, but I'm not sure.
I do have a diamond wheel thingy for my dremel, but I don't think that is what I used.
Help Me!

I can't help much. I cut some this summer using my wheeled cutters and then sanded the edges even. I know there are several here who can help.

RE: Cutting cups in half

I've only used tile nippers..not even wheeled ones.
one side will have a handle, the other won'

or, worse, it's going to just's a case of
take your chances.

RE: Cutting cups in half

I think that is what I did seaglass, but I'm not sure.
I tried the dremel thingy yesterday, if I have to I will use it but it seems I did it a much simpler way.
Darn this memory loss.

RE: Cutting cups in half

Fern, your memory serves you right, just use the wheeled nippers and cut to one side of the handle, usually it cuts the thing right in half with the handle intact on one half. If it doesn't break even, sometimes I trim it a little with the nippers and try to straighten it up or I get mad and drop it and use the pieces. Good luck
