Can I use a Dremel to grind stained glass?
Moreover, do you need a grinder for stained glass?
The short answer is no, you don't have to grind glass. You don't have to grind glass edges to make copper foil stick. A stained glass grinder should only be used to tidy up a piece of glass and get it to fit accurately.

Similarly one may ask, can you grind glass down?
An abrasive stone cannot shape your glass pieces the way a glass grinder can, but it can get rid of those nasty little edges on your freshly cut pieces of glass. Instead of taking your glass to the grinder to clean your edges, just run the surface of the stone against the area of your glass that needs smoothing.
Can you cut glass with an angle grinder?
You can cut tempered glass with an angle grinder with a diamond wheel as if it where stone. Pretty risky though, you need to make precautions or else glass will be flying everywhere. You also need to have special polishing equipment to clean up the cut.
