A stone hit my window and caused a deep scratch. Any suggestions on how to remove it using a Dremel?

I used the grinding wire wheel to polish out a mirror that had a lot of Gorilla glue on it and it didn't even scratch it.

****o, this is Beth from Dremel Customer Service.  We don't really have anything that is going to take scratches out of glass.  We do have many accessories in our "Cleaning/Polishing" end, however, again, these are not recommended for removing scratches.  (Some people think they can use the "polishing compound", but that has about a 400 grit in it, which could cause some scratching on it's own).  We offer the "Grinding/Sharpening" stones, but those are really used to "grind" down glass, like the edges... not to remove scratches.  I'm sorry that I wasn't able to provide a better answer in the way of your application, but I certainly don't want you to use one of these things and have a not to pleasant result.  Thanks for your question.  If you have others, you can also feel free to call our Dremel Customer Service Department on the toll free phone number of 1-800-437-3635, Monday - Friday, 7:00 am - 6:00 pm, CST.
