CHA Tools: Diamond Tech

The Diamond Tech booth had a hotplate with a large pot simmering away on top. Thinking we had found soup (and a way to avoid the crazy lunch lines!) we stopped to see what was what. Not soup, but a way to reuse something else from your kitchen… the Diamond Tech Generation Green Bottle Cutter.

The g2 bottle cutter is made of recycled aluminum, and allows the user to create clean scores on bottles and jars.

Once the score is completed

simply place the bottle in alternating hot and cold water baths. The change in temps causes the glass to expand and contract, running the score, and separating the glass.

not soup.

Take a look at what the Diamond Tech team created:

 Now we’re looking at our recycling bin in a whole new way!

Dana Vitek is a craft-‐‑supply hoarder with an obscenely understanding husband. She works full-‐‑time as a geologist, and spends her free time sort of paying attention to her two kids, reading a lot, and crafting. She's a crocheter, but not a knitter because knitting seems way too complicated. She's a card maker, but usually only 10 minutes before a birthday party. She cusses at her sewing machine. She has at least 12 different types of glue, but can never find the scissors she wants when she wants them. Dana started writing and editing for Craft Critique in 2008. She is perhaps best known for her Mother of All Black Ink Tests, and her annual April Fool's posts. She blogs extremely irregularly at Stamping Science.

    What a great tool for recycled crafts. I guess us crafters need to start saving up some glass bottles. This is sooo neat! Thank you for bringing it to light 🙂
