Glaziers measure, cut, finish, fit and install flat glass and mirrors. As an apprentice you will learn how to:
Determine type and dimensions of glass required. Lay glass over patterns on padded tables and in jigs. Measure and mark glass for cutting. Examine glass and mark defective areas. Cut along patterns and templates. Break off sheets and excess glass with notched tools and glass pliers. Install glass and mirrors in windows, skylights, display cases, interior walls and ceilings. Smooth rough edges using belt sanders and smoothing wheels. May coat, cut, etch, trim and treat glass to achieve special effects.
