Cutting Glass Mosaic Tiles?


What is the best way to cut a 1"x1" glass mosaic tile? They are glued to a mesh sheet and if I try to cut them on the wet tile saw they move and the saw is not able to cut them.

Cutting Glass Mosaic Tiles?


I had the same problem. Ended up taking the pieces that need to be cut out of the mesh and cutting them individually. I actually left all of the mosaic cutting places to the end of the job, installed only the parts that needed no cutting, then cut and installed these little pieces one by one. It's slow, but it works.
