I'm New To The Message Board, Although I've Been Scrolling Off And On For Several Years. I Have Read Somewhere That You Can Cut Glass On A Scroll Saw. I Would Be Interested In Getting More Information On This.

Welcome to the board.
A scroll saw is not the right tool for cutting glass. For power cutting, you would want a glass saw with a diamond blade and water bath. Most similar to a scrollsaw would be a "ring saw" or "wire saw", but there are also glass cutting band saws and tile saws.
For simple straightish lines, scoring and breaking works well.

Gail Jennings has cut a lot of glass on his scroll saw. I will send you a PM with his email address.
He uses water and diamond blades.

I've cut a lot of glass with saws but always with a diamond blade and a lot of water. There are saws designed for the purpose and I would suggest using one of them rather than a scroll saw......not because the scroll saw can't cut glass, but so you don't damage your saw.
