Hi All:

Was wondering if anyone could tip me on where I could find a cheap place for cutting glass.

Its not a big task, what it is is that I dropped my wall clock, and the glass face had cracked.  Its a simple wall clock which can easily be taken apart to have its glass replaced by another.
Its not a special piece of glass, just one on your normal picture frame, so its easy enough to replace.  Whats proven to be hard is that the shape is circular, and normal picture framing places don't know how to cut a circular piece of glass for me.

Can anyone suggest me a place they know that would easily do the job? I like my simple clock, but don't think this is a job for a professional glass company with precision diamond cutters, which probably will charge glass by the millimeter.

Thanks heaps!

Mikey.

Not sure about cheap, but I had to get two glass shelves replaced in my entertainment system.  Ended up using Haynes Glass, great service, quick turn around, free delivery, and the shelves were exactly as I had requested.

Thanks for the reply, but that didn't really help solve my issue.  As stated clearly in my open discussion that professional glass makers are not what I am looking for.
