Saws are great for cutting glass, but sometimes, it’s a more precise cut we need for an obscurely-shaped piece. When you want to make circles with glass or cut out unusual shapes for your stained glass project, what should you use?
Many glass artists loathe cutting circles because it is so difficult to make it just right. Fortunately, you don’t need to scrap any glass project that contains circles anymore because the Silberschnitt Pro Circle Cutter is just what you need.
This German-engineered product uses a strong suction cup to hold onto the glass. You’ll need to make sure the glass is stationary on your cutting area so that it doesn’t move. Then you can set the Silberschnitt Pro Circle Cutter to the width of your desires.
To make that perfect circle, you’ll need to apply continuous pressure as you cut. The 6-wheel cutting turret is designed to make flawless scores. You can avoid dullness by rotating the wheels. The cutting ruler on the Silberschnitt Pro Circle Cutter can measure in inches and centimeters too. It’s ideal for any project that requires circles in sizes of 2 ½ inches on up to 24 inches in diameter. Want to see it in action? Check out the Silberschnitt Pro Circle Cutter Video!
But suppose you have a stained glass project that has a pattern consisting of atypical shapes, particularly in small sizes? You’ll often find these in stained glass patterns that use small pieces to create a whole bigger picture. While there are certainly some good band saws out there, this tool gives you a little more intimacy when getting the job done.
That’s where the Toyo Thomas Grip Super Cutter comes in. The ergonomic design is comfortable to hold and easy to use, which means there’s much less hand fatigue in it for you. Its self-oiling and free-rolling wheel give you a consistent score line every single time. What’s revolutionary about this stained glass tool is that it has patented tap-wheel technology that emits micro vibrations as it rotates, leaving you with that perfect score you need for a beautiful glass art project.
The cutter heads are easy to replace when needed but they will last a long while before you’ll need to think about that. They give you deeper scores with less applied pressure too, which means you can cut your work in half, pardon the pun, and finish your spectacular pieces much more quickly.
