Glass shop

Does anyone know of any good glass shops around to cut baffles for a sump?

Go to the millwork desk at any Home Depot. Cheap and good. .25 to .50. Nothing under 12"

Thanks! I was under the impression they only had .09” thick window glass. Called Kirkwood glass and they wanted $25 each panel. Seemed excessive.

I work for Home Depot. It has to be ordered but the price is great.

I have a glass scorer if you would like to borrow it. Its super easy to cut glass. If your going to do a ton of cuts, they are about 20$.

local shots are charging 10 - 20$ PER cut they made.

I appreciate it. I’ll let you know if I need it. I’m considering getting an acrylic sump, I just need to find one that I like the set up of.

I can cut acrylic for you if you find an acrylic fish tank and decide to convert it to a sump.

Thanks. It will probably be about a month before I am ready to proceed with anything. Leaving the country in a week and a half. My oldest daughter is in color guard and her band was selected to perform in Normandy and Paris for the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
