    Some can be cut on a dry cutter but mostly you have to wet cut them..but not all blades are suitable for glass...do a test cut with water in and if it starts to shell out with in the cut lines then you need a porcelain blade or a glass blade...rubi do a blade called a CVG and is designed specifically for glass but most good quality porcelain blades will cut as well...hope this helps..let us know how you get on...

    was told to lay glass tiles on card or paper when running through your wet cutter to prevent getting any scratch marks on underside which could be visible once layed.

    What difference would using spacers make to the setting time.? youv,e lost me there.

    If you want to grout the same day then tile with a rapid setting adhesive (white )

    A good porcelain blade should cut glass tiles no problem. Thats what I normally use and without any problems
