Pros : I purchased this saw when I first started doing glass fusing and draping. I absolutely love it. I just purchased a new one. It is my all time favorite. It cuts circles so easy, and so many other things that take no time at all. Anything you can think of it can cut it. Again I love this saw and all that it can do
Pros : I have been using Gemini saws for 20 years. When my most recent Taurus II.2 bit the dust I purchased the Taurus 3. Wow! What a huge improvement over the old saw. Immediately it was noticably quieter than my old saws. And it cuts so much faster and smoother than any saw I have ever had. I also found it much easier to clean since the saw detaches from the tub. I have not yet needed to change the blade but from watching the video instructions it appears to be much less effort than with the II.2. The instructional video that came with the saw is a scream! It won't win any academy awards but It is informative and entertaining; beats the heck out of reading an instruction manual!
Cons : Cost is still pretty steep.
Other Thoughts : Wish I had gotten this saw a long time ago instead of limping along with my old saw which had served me well but had seen better days.
Pros : More precise cuts, cutting shapes that would be impossible by hand without making more pieces or lines in areas that you don't want pieced. Shapes like doves, flowers, etc are easy to cut & I find there is less grinding using the Taurus Saw. One of the best purchases I have made!
Cons : N/A
Other Thoughts : I just bought the separable blade to experiment more with different projects....get more creative!

Part 2 of a 2 part series on the basics of glass fusing. In this weeks article Donna gives advice on indispensable tools for beginner glass fusers. 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
My husband and I recently met a spectacular couple, a genuine cowgirl and cowboy. Besides being fortunate enough to purchase a very sweet horse from them, we are proud to be able to call them our friends. While at their home I learned that her one of her best friends, her horse, had passed away the previous year. "Yoda" had carried her though years on the Rainbow Riders drill flag team, taken her to reigning championships, and safety along countless miles of trails. I wanted to do something special for her, and also try something new for me. I remembered seeing an article in the Delphi newsletter about making fused glass silhouettes from a photograph. While at her home I snuck a picture of her and Yoda sliding to victory, on my cell phone. I downloaded the picture and adjusted it to an appropriate size for a 10" by 10"
