So sturdy it's covered by an incredible 3 year manufacturer warranty (excluding blades)
Pros : AFTER I ordered my DL3000XL I read a bunch of negative reviews on this site about the light on this saw and about water making a mess. I LOVE the saw. The light is great but not necessarily needed because I have an overhead light above my saw and there is NOTHING obscuring the view of the working service. Even though it has a flat blade compared to my last saw which had a round one, I found it easy to cut curves. It is quiter than my last saw. It cuts so much faster and it is true...the cut is fine which means it removes less glass making my work more accurate. I LOVE MY NEW SAW.
Cons : I think the saw is PERFECT.
Other Thoughts : I WILL RECOMMEND THIS SAW TO ALL MY GLASS ARTIST FRIENDS.
Pros : multi-uses, fast, diamond blade very durable. We bought this initially just for stained glass. It proved to be just as advertised. Fast and great for small difficult cuts.
Cons : Water ends up on floor, somewhat cheap plastic pieces for the water sources that keep the blade wet while cutting.
Other Thoughts : We purchased this for cutting glass for our stained glass projects. We found it to be perfect for what we purchased it for. That was in 2005. Almost 10 years later it is still running strong and we just recently were renovating our bathroom and had very difficult tile to cut. A tile cutter would have broken the tile. We tried using the XL 3000 to cut the fragile tile and low and behold, it cut it perfect. Next, we tried it with regular tile for some very difficult cuts that a tile cutter would never have been able to get. With a little effort, it managed to cut the tile perfectly. I would have given it 5 stars if we didn't have to change how to catch the water so it doesn't end up on the floor all the time. Great tool!
Pros : Just got these saw today and I can cut 3 to 4 times more items in a day then what I was cutting before I got it. This thing will save me time, glass, copper wrap, soldier, and grinding bits. I really like it and think it is a very good item for the money.
Cons : Had to rework the water catch tray is there is not a big water mess on the floor but is not a big deal ... Just cut a couple of pieces of plastic and taped them in place.
Other Thoughts : I woulda ell anyone starting in stain glass to get this.
Can you stack glass and make cuts with the Diamond Laser 3000 Bandsaw? You can stack glass and cut multiple pieces at one time. The trick is to hold all the pieces together without slipping. I have found that using poster gum (which can be found at your local office supply or grocery store) works very well. Layout the first piece of glass and place several small balls of the poster gum around the perimeter and position the second piece of glass on top of it. For a third layer, just repeat this step, then gently press the glass pieces together so that the gum has really good adhesion with the glass. Its relatively waterproof and should hold the glass in place while you are cutting.
I have been sorely tempted to buy a glass bandsaw. What are the advantages and disadvantages to having a saw? The Advantages 1. It makes difficult to near impossible cuts very simple. 2. Cutting dense ripples and drapery glass is a breeze. 3. Because of accuracy, it saves grinding and fit time. The Disadvantages 1. A bandsaw is limited to the size pieces you can cut because of the circular blade. With the Speedster Bandsaw and Diamond Laser 3000, the maximum size glass piece is approximately 10 to 12 inches in diameter. 2. It does not take the place of simple cuts. Its much faster to cut strips and simple shapes using a regular glass cutter.
