    Glass Separation

    It doesn't get less about motorcycles than this (or maybe it does?) -- anyway here's a puzzle for you.

    My daughter stacked these two glasses and somehow managed to fuse them together at an atomic level. The square glass is one of my favorites and the last one in the set that hasn't been broken. What kind of magic can separate these things? I already tried shaking, slapping, twisting, soaking the bottom glass in hot water... cold water... so far no luck.

    Put ice cubes in the top one and pour some water in the bottom one (about half way fill it). Put them in the microwave for 3 minutes and quickly remove them and they should come apart.

    If what Degsy suggested doesn't work and you don't care much about the bottom glass, just break it. I'd probably take it to my backyard, put it on some padding, and shoot the round glass with a .22LR. Wrap it up to keep the glass from flying all over the place.

    Just run even hotter water over the bottom glass and it should release. If it doesn't, put ice water in the top glass too.

    You can use boiling water too but bring the temp up gradually so it doesnt shatter.

    Re: Glass Separation

    Excellent suggestions, now the question is whether to choose science or violence...

    The .223 should solve this.

    I think I need to finally pull the trigger on one. Until I hear more feedback on the T120. Also the Guzzi Griso is in my short list

    But more importantly... is the glass free or what? You can’t set up a cliff hanger like that and not update Tekime!

    Not yet, but soon!

    Busy last night, had to hit Home Depot to get some wood for a shelf I'm mounting. Would have been a 10 minute stop but brought the fam so it was more like 2 hours. My kid is strangely obsessed with going to Home Depot and playing with every single thing in the store.

    That should bring a tear to your eye. Mine goes straight for the lawn furniture...

    I end up baking and serving cookies in any of the 14 the kitchen displays.



    EDIT: Try WD40 on the glassware.

    Video your attempts at separating the glasses. You know, for science.

    Not extreme enough then. Next time drop liquid nitrogen into the top glass while heating the bottom one with Oxy-acetylene. I bet that separates them REAL fast.
