Pros : I am new to stained glass, so the kit impressed me.Good selection of glass.
Cons : Only thing I can think of in should have had coolant added for grinder water to lubricate diamond grinder wheel, so they don't wear out as fast!
Other Thoughts : If you don't plan on patina on your first few projects, you need to add silver backed tape to this order. Maybe offer this kit with discount add on options.I would have rated it a 5 star, but surly it should have coolant with grinder.
Pros : Very satisfied with the quality of the products. The item I thought would be the least useful has turned out to be the most useful, the grinder cookie. The glass selection was just fine for my first project in over 25 years. All of the tools, better than expected.
Cons : The 1" grinder bit did not hold up well, there is already surface that has been worn away on it. Today I ordered a different brand of bit for it. The grinder it self is just fine except for the water it throws off of the bit. If Power Max would only make the cheap fix & fit this grinder with a removable spray guard on the grid like my old one had, it would rate much, much better.

I am planning on making a sidelight window for our house 11 inches x 64 inches. Do I subtract 1/16 inch on all four sides or 1/32 inch on all four sides? Im having some trouble figuring out how to make the pattern fit. Is this measurement the actual size of the opening that the panel will be installed into? If so, subtract 1/16 inch off each edge or basically subtract 1/8 inch from both measurements (10 7/8 inches x 63 7/8 inches). Before you start cutting out the glass for this panel, take a closer look at the opening it will be installed into. Take lots of measurements both horizontally and vertically at the edges and through the middle. It is not uncommon for an opening to have many different measurements; After all, if the original window
