Kinkajou Bottle Cutter
Do you know that you can make your own glass cups from beer bottles? Yes, you can. The Kinkajou Bottle Cutter makes this a reality.
Instead of throwing away old beer bottles, people are now converting them into recycled and reusable items for the home.
Kinkajou Bottle Cutter gives do-it-yourself enthusiasts beer cups of joy.
When you buy a Kinkajou Bottle Cutter, you get sandpapers included to help finish the glass, separation ties to help make a cleaner separation and you can cut bottles from 43mm-102mm and One blade lasts over 200 cuts. This means it will cut many bottlenecks.
The wheel is made of tungsten carbide steel and lasts a long time. It takes some practice to get to use it efficiently.
Scoring Process: Insert a bottle into the Kinkajou so that the cutting wheel lines up to the desired cutting location and adjust the screws until the Kinkajou grasps the bottle firmly but still allows it to easily turn. Engage the cutting wheel and rotate the bottle one complete turn ONLY. You will hear our signature “Kinkajou Click” once the rotation is complete.
Separation Process: Place a separation tie on each side of the score line and pour alternating streams of boiling and cold water to stress the glass. The Kinkajou can handle thick and thin bottles just fine however thicker glass may require more cycles of boiling and cold water to force the separation.
Finishing Process: Your Kinkajou kit includes 3 sheets of 80-grit sandpaper. This sandpaper will easily remove any sharp edge but if you’re looking for that gorgeous, polished edge, we highly recommend our Saber Tooth Diamond Sanding Pad Kit.
We tend to cut bottles with attractive painted labels because preserving paper labels is a challenge. The variety of bottles is endless, and so are the projects you can create with the Kinkajou Bottle Cutter.
Please note the instructions above are a quick summary. Refer to the Instruction Manual included in your kit for safety and operational procedures.
