Product Description

Save Time and Cut Like a Pro!
For years, Delphi customers and instructors have used the Morton Tool System to make glass cutting quicker, easier and more accurate. With the Portable Glass Shop, which includes an instructional CD and guide, you can teach yourself how to cut glass like a pro. The Portable Glass Shop allows you to cut geometric shapes easily over and over again. Just measure once, then cut two or two hundred pieces - all identical to the original. Finish the job with the Safety Break System to achieve perfect breaks.

Kit Includes:

  • Portable Glass Shop (item #7163B): a must-have tool for all glass crafters. Makes cuts fast and accurate. Cuts triangles, rectangles, diamonds and any other geometric shape easily.
  • Two of the Morton Mini Surface Plus - 2 Pack (item #7125): for a total of four interconnecting grids measuring 11-1/4" x 15-3/4" each, give you the freedom to construct the size and shape of your work surface.
  • Safety Break System (item #7162): two buttons and two blocks (wear one around your neck with the attached lanyard). Place a score line over the button and apply gentle pressure with block. The results are amazing. You'll run the score from end to end for a perfect break with no rough or flared edges.

  •   Great for straight cuts!
By on
Pros : Makes straight cuts easy.
Cons : You must number entire system yourself and tape ruler yourself. Should come that way for accuracy...little hokey.
Other Thoughts : I like that it catches shards.

  •   Excellent!
By on
Pros : easy to use fun
Cons : Instructions are a little confusing, must have adequate space
Other Thoughts : This is one awesome set! I purposely waited to cut diamonds until I got this set. I struggled in the beginning with the instructions and explanations but once I watched a couple of videos, it was a snap to learn. I made perfect strips, squares, triangles, and diamonds in a very short amount of time. I have struggled with this for years, I am wondering why I didn't buy this sooner and avoid all the struggle.

  •   Good quality product
By on
Pros : Very well made. Plenty of accessories to start with.
Cons : Lots of assembly details that could most likely be paired down to a simpler form.
Other Thoughts : I think someone needs to review the assembly/use instructions to see if it could be made much simpler. Otherwise a good product

We scoured the web, asked our Delphi artists, questioned our fans on Facebook, and finally came up with 13 easy-to-implement tips for keeping things clutter-free. Feel free to share your own in our comments section below. 1. Choose an area with good lighting. If you have a window, keep the area clear, so light can flow in nicely. 2. Partition off the craft area (contain the craft creep) with a screen or furniture. 3. If you havent used something in 2 years, consider donating it to a school or senior center, selling to a buy-back program or tossing it. 4. Label everything. 5. Consider what tools and supplies you need the most. These should be easily accessible. Store the rest in clear bins. 6. If your space is limited, go vertical. Install a slat wall for easy shelving. From our Facebook fans 7. Scrapbooking paper shelves are also great for

Part 1 of a 2 part blog on the basics of glass fusing. In this weeks article Donna will tell us how to set up your work area and gives suggestions on finding the perfect kiln. Often potential fusers ask about the cost of getting started in glass. I found that it isnt as expensive as one might think because the list of necessities for the beginner is not too long. So what would the list look like for someone who had NO experience at all? Well, this is what I began with, and I think you might find these ideas helpful. Space to Work- A place to cut glass can be fairly small. The most important detail is a floor surface such as concrete that will be easy to clean. I tried commercial tile in my first studio, and the shards were soon embedded under the work area. Obviously,
