This says one size fits all, but I doubt it will work for a 1.75L Bacardi bottle; anyone here with experience on this?
Yes, actually! I was able to get it to go around a 1.75l Svedka bottle, but just barely. And the glass was so thick and smooth that the scoring failed in a few spots, leaving places where the break ended up escaping, ruining the bottle. It also sliced one of the silicone bands.
I wouldn't recommend this for most large 1.75 glass bottles. You can achieve the same effect by making a jig that holds a cutter in place while you rotate the bottle. However, for wine/beer/liquor bottles that aren't a weird shape (I'm looking at you, Jack and Bulleit!) this worked SUPER well. My wife and I used it to make the vases for flowers at our wedding. I also used a dremel with a a fine grit (and VERY LOW speed) to sand the edges because I'm lazy. Pro tip: Wear protective EVERYTHING. Wear a mask. Wear goggles. Wear long sleeves, long pants, and boots. You're powdering GLASS, you do NOT want that shit airborne. I set my shopvac up on a jig and had the hose positioned so I could hold the bottle with one hand, the dremel with the other and the fine satanic glass dust of doom got sucked right up.
It's definitely a simple process once you get used to it. It takes a little bit of trial and error, so go buy a case of cheap shitty wine, drink it up, and use those as your practice rounds. You don't want to have a $50 bottle with pretty painted label turn into a bunch of shiny sharp shards.
Yes you can, but it's tricky.
