Pros : Well built and if you can learn to use it, will allow you to cut any shape.
Cons : The manual is confusing, it contradicts itself, the drawings sometimes don't match the text. An audio CD is included but it is just a reading of the confusing manual. The website has 2 or 3 videos on it but they don't answer my questions.
Other Thoughts : If you are a beginner, investigate all the cutting systems. I purchased the Morton based on the recommendation of teachers. But they started in glass working when there weren't any other cutting system choices, so they had to make it work. There are other options out there now. If you are a beginner, investigate them before spending $100+ on this system.
