Haha dont worry you haven't put this idea in my head, i have been meaning to do it since i first took apart my iMac last month to remove the failing super drive. Ok update on the screen. I have given up on cutting the screen using the tool i bought so its tougher than i first though. In the mean time i have been using my iMac without the front on since friday and its far better for general use, viewing films and even playing games.Wow you have a lot of guts trying this yourself. When I said glass cutter I meant a professional glass cutting person.
How do you plan to smooth out the glass where you made the cut?
Keep us updated.
Well I know this post is old but were you successful with cutting out the glass?View attachment 199728 This is me with my suction cup getting ready to remove the glass screen.
View attachment 199726 This is inside my iMac. I took it apart so that i could remove that troublesome superdrive which is on the left side of the pic. Mine stopped functioning so i might replace it or just get an external
View attachment 199729 This is my iMac at the moment with no glass front on. I was cutting the middle out of the glass so that i could just keep the black border. However i cant seem to remove the glass centre and im a little worried about breaking it by pushing it too hard. I might try and get a bigger/better glass cutter and try again at weekend
I don't know about those sprays, but it does say that it is easily removable so its probably worth a try. I would like to know if one of those stick on screen protectors would work well.
