Looking for tempered glass cutters for table top

Title is self explanatory, I'm wondering where people have been in Vancouver when shopping for tempered glass? I need it cut to specific dimensions so craigslist/used isn't an option for me.

Thanks in advance

That's interesting, I went to a place by Holdom skytrain station, they do stone work and counter tops, but I don't think mine is tempered glass. It is quite thick on the other hand (1/2"), and after 3ish years still is good.

I assume you want tempered so you can put hod pots and pans without worrying?

Oh I should note, I put the glass top onto a wooden table top, not into like a frame or something. It just covers the wood on my dining room table.

Your out of luck if it's a tempered piece of glass as you won't be able to cut it. However, if there is a crack that's formed then it wouldn't be tempered as it would have exploded into 1000's of pieces like your car window does.

If you just want a non tempered piece cut Vancouver Glass and Superglass should be able to.

I got my tempered glass at Speedy Autoglass on Minoru where Lang's Glass used to be. Just go in with your measurements and they will order it in for you.

Tempered glass Will shatter into a million pieces if you try to cut it.

Unless you can anneal it, cut it, then re-temper.
