Cons : Very difficult to use. requires a lot of hand strength. EXPENSIVE!
Other Thoughts : I bought these after hand surgery based on the reviews. I thought if they were easier on my hands, they would be worth the high price. I was stunned at how difficult they were to use. They required more strength than I had. They did a terrible job running my score. I had my husband try and he also found them to be very hard to use compared to my other inexpensive pliers. and even for him they produced poor quality runs. I am able to use my original pliers with ease even after surgery. Thankfully I was able to return these. I recommend trying these before buying them.I will be sticking with Studio Pro running pliers for about $8.00. They really do a great job. Also Studio Pros are not too bad on my hands.
Pros : Outstanding ability to run tight inside curves without wasting glass. Less hand pressure required eliminates hand cramps. Moveable top jaw piece allows more flexibility along the break with less glass moving.
Cons : Requires 3-5 minutes of practice when you receive them to understand how much less pressure is required than standard running pliers.
Other Thoughts : Wish I received a commission for each one sold to friends after they used mine just one time.

In the beginning, I used one larger tool, and that was a Super Star Grinder. It is still running, running, running. Others have come, and some have gone, but this one is still here. For smaller cold working projects, diamond hand pads do a nice job. The next cutting tool that I bought was a saw. My Taurus 3 Ring Saw has worked extremely well for me, and I love what I can do with it that I couldnt do before, but I worked for 2 years before I purchased this nifty item. As for cutters and breakers, I have many, but for me, the Silberschnitt breaker pliers are a must for small (1/4") strip breaking.....saves so much glass. I use both plastic
Thanks to a wide assortment of patterns, molds and instruction, it’s easy for hobbyists to make Tiffany style lampshades. We should mention right away that when we refer to Tiffany Style Lamps, we’re talking about lamps that are made on a mold (or form… the terms are interchangeable). If a mold isnt needed, the lamp would be considered a Flat Panel Lamp. Making Tiffany style lamps is actually quite similar to making stained glass windows. The main difference is that after you’ve cut and foiled the pieces for your lamp, you solder them together on a mold, instead of on a flat surface. This is what gives the lamp its rounded shape. Most of the pieces in a Tiffany lamp need to be quite small to conform to the rounded mold. That’s why this type of shade, by its nature, has a considerable number of pieces. Most popular designs have
