Bottle cutting

Hi folks, since I retired I picked up a hobby of cutting whisky bottles. They are used for candles, cigar ashtrays, etc.
Some bottles are too wide to cut in one pass. I have to turn bottle 180* and pass thru again to finish cut. Coming thru on the same plane is tricky. The uneven edge makes it hard to polish.
Anyone know of maybe a magnetic laser I could attach to my saw? Or have any ideas on how to make this cut?
I'm using a Dewalt that has a 4" clearance.

Cool! Are you polishing with a wet grinder and diamond pads?

I’d guess that anything mounted magnetically would be too prone to vibrating out of alignment with the blade. What about making you’re own mount and using something like this.

Lost track of my marble polishing tools. I'm just using sanding drums on a dremel then going to higher grit by hand.
Thanks for the tip on that laser. That just might be the ticket.

I've cut the bottoms off wine bottles but didn't bother polishing them. Fine sanding disks should work. Maybe try Woodcraft stores.
