Can I use a Dremel to grind stained glass?

You can use the Dremel rotary tool to grind glass with special bits designed for use with glass, such as the diamond or silicon carbide grinding stones. This keeps the glass dust from spraying into your eyes and nose and helps cool and lubricate the glass surface during grinding.

Similarly one may ask, can you grind glass down?

An abrasive stone cannot shape your glass pieces the way a glass grinder can, but it can get rid of those nasty little edges on your freshly cut pieces of glass. Instead of taking your glass to the grinder to clean your edges, just run the surface of the stone against the area of your glass that needs smoothing.

Can you cut glass with an angle grinder?

You can cut tempered glass with an angle grinder with a diamond wheel as if it where stone. Pretty risky though, you need to make precautions or else glass will be flying everywhere. You also need to have special polishing equipment to clean up the cut.
