Pros : I have had a lot of fun with this kit. Almost everything needed to start "doing" stained glass. The video is pretty easy to follow and most of the tools are well made and easy to use.
Cons : The video talks about using a bevel for the center of the project instead of cutting a circle. It would be so easy for this to be included in the kit, saving a lots of frustration. The flux pen should be replaced with a small bottle of flux and a brush as the flux pen was less than useless, no directions and it broke quickly. This kit would be really great with just a few little changes.
Other Thoughts : I have had a lot of fun with this for a relatively small expense. I have made several small projects and think I am hooked!

If you plan on using copper patina the copper foil with no color backing will match, if you plan on leaving the solder in its natural silver color the silver foil will match, or black backed foil for black patina.
