  •   Good Product
By on
Pros : Good quality, lasts long for many cuts. More artistic than glue on bails when using this groove maker with wire.
Cons : None that I can see.
Other Thoughts : Customers like the wire wrapped around the glass cabs better than glue on bails.

The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks

Here are a few tips for better packaging-it might just buy you your next customer. 1. Show your customers what theyll get. The boutique I mentioned earlier had
