How to bevel glass?
I will shortly be purchasing a new 10gal tank that I plan on de-rimming. I already have experience de-rimming another 10gal, which was largely successful, but the tank had been sitting for a couple of years, and I was unable to remove some of the hard water stains as well as scratches present from it's previous owner (my brother).
One thing that I've noticed is that the bare edges of these DIY rimless tanks can be quite sharp. So when I go about taking the black rims off of this next tank, I would like to concider beveling the edges, like what is done on most commercially available rimless tanks, like ADA, GLA, and Mr Aqua.
Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this clean beveled edge. I would like the bevel to be pretty consistent throughout the tank, so I am not quite sure what tool to use. I do have a dremel, if that makes any difference. It has a planing attatchment to it which is made of carbide steel, but I am worried that it may just chip the glass, since it doesn't seem like it is intended to be used on glass. So if anyone has any good ideas of how to achieve a nice, clean beveled edge, I love to hear them.
