The Score 1 is an amazing tool that makes glass cutting easy: just adjust the height and pressure, then turn the dial. Scores glass evenly and cleanly every time. If you've ever gotten an imperfect score line because your hand got tired or in an awkward position, this cutter is right for you! It exerts constant pressure, so you can concentrate on guiding the cutter head. You can even cut glass while sitting down! Carbide cutter head will last for years with normal use.
Pros : Truly a Great tool to
cut smaller pieces. Cuts
down on wrist fatigue, allowing one to cut far more pieces than one would be able to cut without getting fatigued using a a hand held cutting tool.
Cons : Due to throat limitation
one has to cut large sheet
of glass down before starting to make detail
Other Thoughts : Excellent tool for a person that has wrist fatigue or pain.
Pros : Allows very accurate cuts. Eliminates strain on weak (or older) wrists. Easy to change cutting head when needed. Be sure to use pipe cleaner and cutting oil to keep cutting wheel lubed. one drop of oil lasts all day.
Cons : The rubber belt on the drive wheel comes out of the track at times, especially on tight curves.
Other Thoughts : I have used Score one cutters for 10 or more years. Once you get used to it your pistol grip cutter will only be used on pieces too large for the Score one. Would be lost without it. Great item

Step One Get Comfortable You must be comfortable with your glass cutter. If you haven’t already, find a glass cutter you like, and most importantly, likes you back.
