The heavy glass lid for a cooking skillet got a chip in the edge that left a razor sharp edge.

Using my XPR-400 with the tapered silicone carbide 84922, I smoothed that edge so is now safe to handle.

My understanding is that the diamond bits would do as well or better.

Anyone else have advice on working with such glass chips?

I should add that for safety, I used some leather gloves, safety glasses and placed a rag aroung the glass to catch any fragments.

Tip - I have also found that nitrite gloves, which are a silicone/rubber type substance sprayed onto stretch nylon knit gloves, are great for Dremel work.  They are thin so you have the tactile feel through them yet the nitrite gives a very good grip on things even if wet, oily, or dry, and resist chemicals & solvents - even with handling small items.  I recommend them and you can find them for $2-5@ at Walmart, Lowes or Home Depot.  Also Auto Zone, as mechanics gloves.Smile
