There was a lot of discussion on the glass thread, so just a little more info. Auto Glass is either laminated safety, or tempered safety, sometimes called Herculite. Today 90 % of side and rear windows are tempered. They shatter when broken. ALL windshields are laminated. There is also tinted, shaded,(windshields) and clear. There is a super grade of laminated called "safety plate, and the economy "safety sheet". It's all marked on the corner of full sheet. If you are determined to cut your own glass, which I don't recommend because you won't have the tight wheel or speed (slow) grinder to polish the edges. But if it is 100% contained in frame that is now a problem. Go to a good glass shop and buy the cutter and the gripping pliers. Ask them for some scraps. Go home and practice. I'm sure there are U-tube videos on this. All in all, best to let a shop do it. They bury their mistakes in overhead, you bury yours in "repair costs"

I agree with GordoSD. I work for PPG and I cut glass on a regular basis. Tempered glass can be cut , but it must first be heated to 700 degrees F, which most folks can't do at home.

the tempering comes from high temperature heating, but can be removed by heating again. Best bet is to go to a shop that does it for a living.
