  •   How did I ever live without it?
By on
Pros : More reliable and easier cutting. Now that I know how to use it can reliably cut to precise measurements.
Cons : The "stoppers" or whatever you call those things that keep the glass from slipping are not very easy to use. Once tightened down they can we hard to untighten and reposition. Sometimes they get stuck in the grooves.
Other Thoughts : The con is a minor inconvenience. The "system" takes a little time to get use to and understand how to cut to exact measurements, but is relatively easy to master.

Pros : Cuts everything straight and nice. Even when smaller you can do a lot of things.
Cons : You may need to purchase 2 more waffles to control the glass easier.

I dont have just one favorite tool, but there is one that I use virtually every time I work on a project. As you know, having the right tool for the job, makes the job a whole lot easier. Beetle Bits Cutting System with the Flying Beetle Attachment This system provides the speed and precision glass cutting that a busy studio demands. Cutting strips, squares, angles and more are perfect every time, and this tool does it in half the time of other systems. Be sure to train your entire staff to use this amazing system and theyll all be anxious to use it. Plus, they now have a 35 bar to use with your system, so cutting large pieces of glass is fast and accurate. There is a video on the Business Center, under Studio Resources that demonstrates all the wonderful things this system will do.
