Default Glass cutting lubricant

Greetings:

What is the consensus on glass cutting fluid. Turpentine, kerosene, or some
of the specialty odorless fluids available on the market? Thanks.

Best regards,
Charles

Why not use the fake colorless, oderless stuff? It works fine, is fairly
cheap, and doesn't mess up anyones skin or nasal passages.

Just asking: the other day someone remarked that the fake, odorless,
colorless stuff was sissy crap and that "real" glass cutters used
turpentine, kerosene, diesel etc, etc. I was just curious. Thanks.

I've written a tech sheet on the pros and cons of cutter lubes that is free
for download at our website that some might find helpful.

I like the commercial fluids....they don't smell nasty, they're not
flammible, they seem to lubricate well enough, and they clean up with
soap and water.....

Haven't we been down this road before? What is an "officially
sanctioned" stained glass supplier and who does the sanctioning? It's
just driving me nuts.

Is it something like "America's Best Chew" on every package of Red Man
Chewing Tobacco?

Sanctions could "also" mean penalties, as in Figgy is on the run from the
Mounties?

Hadn't even considered that definition. "We're the bad guys and proud of
it."

Perhaps it's something related to ISO-9000? There are 70 companies who
produce glass listed as meeting those requirements for ISO-9000
sanctioning/certification in Canada (according to the ISO-9000 website).
