One time I took and old piece of automotive glass over to a friends house, he was going to help me cut it. We scored both sides real well and then started tapping on it, pretty soon it exploded, there were pieces all over no bigger than a dime, what a mess!

Yes, laminated glass or plain glass can be cut, tempered safety glass can not be cut , drilled ,ground. As soon as you cut through that hard tempered outer layer, the whole thing shatters into a thousand grains of glass. All cutting or grinding on tempered glass must be done before it is tempered.

I think a lot of people confuse tempered glass and laminated glass. They are both technically safety glass but laminated is easily cut. I prefer laminated cause it will crack and you still have a window. Tempered glass just shatters. Special shops can cut and/or drill tempered glass but they aren't common. Most tempered glass is ordered for the original application. I'm not sure if they heat it up and then anneal it after or what they do but I know it's a specialty.
