Just about 100 miles away.  Good time to visit.  School has started and it is still warm enough to enjoy all the beaches.  Hope you had a great time.  

 

 

We had a great time. The weather was good. We went to Apalachicola to visit Aunts and Cousins that I haven't seen in 40 years.

have given me an idea but will need a bottle cutter.

A train transformer and a short chunk of solid wire will cut glass...

 

 

The transformer will turn a short chunk of wire RED HOT. That wire will slice 

right through a glass bottle. You can adjust the transformer so the wire does

not burn off.

Most train transformers are only around 12 volts. You cant get shocked put the wire will burn you quick... Nichrome wire works the best and I use 26 gauge.

 

If you happen to do this at some future point, please take a few pics for us. 

Do you fasten the bottle down and handle the wire, or do you have the wire locked in place and handle the bottle for this?

Wonder how long the wire lasts?

 Last a long time if you use the nichrome wire.  Old electric heater element or a hair dryer element are sources for the wire.  They are meant to get hot.  Can even use the controls from them too.
