Ya mean you bought her a birthday car and a cheep ring. Well at my age birthday cars are starting to go back up...

I am interested in the resolution of your problem. Maybe with this economy you put it on hold. I am interested in recycling thick glass for charity art and stuff. Unless it is tested for strain, it can never be safely used for a tank but I am interested in glass damaged or otherwise. I am especially interested in 1/2" or thicker glass and 1/4" or thicker if it is the water white glass. If I can cut the cracks out and still end up with hand span pieces I would be interested. In some places one has to pay to take that to the disposal so I would certainly pay shipping and a bit more. In California or Nevada area, I might even pick up. I am not really looking for plexiglass BTW.
As far as cutting goes, unless it is being done all the time it would probably best to let someone with a diamond saw or a water jet cut it. If it is with the latter thick glass will leave it with a bevel so be sure you let them know what is acceptable.

I sure did, after I got here. This questions is still circulating in the Eternanet. But as with DIY or DYI, good information never goes out of style. My best set of Handyman Handbooks are 54 years old and they are much better than a set given to me a couple of years back. I noticed no one mentioned water jet and here is another tip. You need to slow the saw down when cutting glass and use a lubricant like used transmission fluid. Window glass will not take the stress ceramic tiles will. Did Ya Know that or have you ever fabricated glass? I was when this was originally posted, 6" thick....
