This item: Morton System Start-Up Kit by Morton Glass Works
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.
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.
Pros : I cannot work without the Morton Start-up System. The ease-of-use and control of size and shape in both angle and geometrics is incredible. Great for both stained glass art as well as mosaics, where speed is the key for cutting your own tiles and cutlet. It is quick, easy and accurate, making it possible to cut multiple tiles at the same time. The breaking tool gives a clean break each time.
Cons : No negatives to this great system, unless it is to ones self, in putting off taking an hour or so to set up and learn. Once done, you're off and running.
Other Thoughts : Wish I had not taken so long to teach myself how to use this system.
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
