Product Description

Ingenious running pliers have a patented pressure system that allows them to be positioned from any angle - great for running difficult scores, especially inside curves. Just center the score line in the "window" and apply even pressure to produce accurate and clean breaks. Replacement jaws available (#40485). Made with a non-metal composite.

Delphi Tip: After scoring your circle on the Scoring and Breaking Mat, use Ringstar Pliers to apply even pressure on the score at 3" intervals around the circle, running the score.

  •   quinn's stained glass
By on
Pros : these make an inside curve so easy. you do have to take your time and listen to the glass tell you what it is doing. you use very gentle and very small spacing.squeeze it like and egg but don't break it. I recommend them to all of my classes
Cons : slow going

  •   not happy at all
By on
Pros : none
Cons : The jaws of the pliers I received do not line up evenly. If I put the score line evenly in the window, the breaker point on the other jaw is not lined up and instead of a clean break I get crushed glass. Very frustrating!
Other Thoughts : Too bad I didn't try them out right away and am past the 30 day refund period. Now I have to buy another pair of pliers.

  •   An absolute must for inside curves
By on
Pros : Breaking out inside curves just got easier! These Ringstar pliers are an absolute essential to add to your toolbox. You do need to take your time and listen to the score as you're running it, but with this tool I'm able to break out curves that didn't stand a chance before. I recommend this tool to everyone I know.
Cons : None
