  •   Speedy foiler...
By on
Pros : Easier to use than vertical dispenser, glass stays aligned with center of tape as you wrap, easy to see when the tape supply runs low.
Cons : Difficult to wrap small pieces, but I don't think any machines work very well with small stuff.
Other Thoughts : Overpriced, but still the best.

Pros : Super time saver for production work. Well worth the price
Cons : A wheel that would be able to handle glass thicker than 1/4 would be great. A lot of the glass I use is slightly thicker than that due to the variations in the glass.

By on
Pros : Fast, accurate, easy to use with a little practice. Little or no waste of foil. I have two, one for black backed and one for regular foil. For larger pieces and straight pieces it keeps the foil perfectly centered. This tool will cut your foiling time in half. You still have to burnish, but it's easy when your foil is centered on the edge. If you do stained glass you need a table foiler.
Cons : The small pieces still have to be hand foiled, and you can't do tight indentations.
Other Thoughts : If you find some of the rolls are a little sticky on the table of the foiler just cut a piece of paper the same size as the roll of foil before you put the foil in the three holders and let the foil spin on the paper. With the paper "washer" the foil never sticks to the table.

  •   Makes foiling fun

  •   Real time saver
By on
Pros : I consider this tool as necessary as a grinder!!!! Does take some practice at first but you can foil larger pieces in a fraction of the time and won't go blind doing it!
Cons : Takes a little practice
Other Thoughts : Here are a few tips.. Larger pieces are easier, be sure to keep your glass flat on the table area, adjust the height of the spool depending on the thickness of your glass. You can switch the spool out if you purchase various sizes but you don't really have to if you adjust the height a bit. The spool I have is for 1/4" foil so any foil smaller than that will fit.

  •   Why foil another way?
By on
Pros : Great little device that makes foiling go super fast, and they turn out clean and crimped
Cons : If your inside cuts are smaller than the wheel, you'll have to hand foil at least that section.
Other Thoughts : Thicker glass makes foiling a little less accurate with this, but I've foiled whole projects with 50-60 pieces in one evening. It's a great little device.

  •   Table Foiler
By on
Pros : I am so thankful someone was smart enough to build this item. Just line up the glass with the rubber "O" ring on the wheel.
Cons : CAN'T THINK OF ANY AS OF YET.
Other Thoughts : I HAVE ARTHUR IN MY HANDS, AND INSTEAD OF IT TAKE ALL DAY, TO APPLY FOIL, 20/30 MIN. IS ALL IT TAKES

  •   Great foiling tool
By on
Pros : With a little practice this makes foiling very fast and easy! Don't give up if you don't get it right away. The extra effort to learn it is worth it!
Cons : SLIGHT learning curve and tiny pieces are best done by hand.
Other Thoughts : MUST use the right wheel for each size foil. VERY easy to change wheels and load foil.

  •   Easier to do by Hand
By on
Pros :
Cons : Doesn't work at all for me. I couldn't get it to work correctly and it kept wasting foil by crunching it up and applying unevenly. Waste of money

  •   Works great!
By on
Pros : I started using this foiler and the time I spend foiling has been cut in half, literally. It took some practice and a little getting used to as far as adjusting it so it foiled evenly, but once I had it down, I was able to breeze through foiling with the greatest of ease!
Cons : I had a little trouble initially adjusting it and I find myself not using it for tiny pieces (which I am slowly learning to avoid anyway!) I still hand foil the teeny pieces like leaves on flowers or even some edge pieces.
Other Thoughts : I accidentally put an older roll of foil that I had sitting around, on the foiler and there was some adhesive or something sticky on the roll. It HAS to be good quality foil which comes off the roll easily or it will disappoint you. Other than that, I LOVE this new tool!

  •   More than meets expectations
By on
Pros : Seeing an item with all 5 star ratings makes me a bit skeptical but this one lives up to that billing. It was easy to use right out of the box, though I found the instruction sheet a bit baffling, at times. The Table Foiler speeds up foiling by a significant amount of time. This due to ease of foil application as well as the evenness of the foil application that I found difficult to control with other foil dispensers.
Cons : None at this time but after somewhat limited use.

  •   great for larger projects
By on
Pros : Makes foiling large pieces and large projects a snap.
Cons : Can be difficult to use on small pieces.
Other Thoughts : I generally like foiling by hand and find it relaxing. But if I have a larger project with large pieces, this is the foiler I grab off the shelf. Like most tools with pieces, I wish there was a place to store the other discs so they don't get lost.

  •   table foiler
By on
Pros : Absolutely wonderful. I have put off buying one of these but am glad I didn't put it off any longer. Easy to set up use and it does a wonderful job. I highly recommend this for a easy really nice look to foiling.
Cons : Very small pieces are better done by hand. Anything with lots of tight curves would be better done by hand. However, I did a piece with flowing curves and it was great.
Other Thoughts : This is a gem don't hesitate.

  •   foiler
By on
Pros : "This thing is awesome", or so my wife says. I got it for her and she says it saves hers a ton of time. It is solidly built and very easy to use.
Cons : For my part, the only thing that I can see is that it is was built a little hastily in the factory. The details in how it was assembled were clearly ignored. (for example the top block is crocked and the particle board showing) It may effect its performance down the road but for now it is just cosmetic.

  •   table foiler
By on
Pros : This fioiler works as advertised. Zips through big pieces and greatly cuts foiling time.
Cons : the foiler can leave small places that are not foiled properly, but these are usually easy to fix. Do not forget how to foil by hand, small pieces and tight curves are easier to foil by hand than trying to use the machine.
Other Thoughts : Make sure you read and follow the instructions. the setting to get the foil centered can be touchy. A quarter turn of the wing nut means the difference between centered foil and a bad looking job. It would have been nice if the adjusting screw was fine threads instead of coarse. Make sure that you keep the glass flat on the foiler table. I found it best to start an end each foil at the 9 o'clock position. It helps keep the foil in the wheel.

  •   FAST
By on
Pros : Accurate, reliable, fast, simple.
Cons : Works well with Venture brand. Must have to do with the exacts widths or stiffness of the foil.
Other Thoughts : I've used this foiler for over a year now and nothing compares for the precision. Easier to foil with glass laying on a flat surface than trying to foil holding glass in verticle position like most other foilers. Any item smaller than a quarter would be best foiled by hand. If I were to lose this tool today, I would have a new one tomorrow. It's that critical to me and I've done over 150 glass projects. For tight radius, I will start next to curve but not in curve and foil entire piece then leave enough extra foil when I cut it loose from the roll and foil the curve by hand but last.

  •   Excellent alternative
By on
Pros : I live in South Africa and bought the table foiler via the internet because I wanted an alternative to foiling by hand, and secondly, I love gadgets. I will never foil without it. Fast to use, even on the really small pieces.
Cons : Difficult to line up at first, but with practice, that is no longer a problem.
Other Thoughts : A bit expensive for us in South Africa with our awful exchange rate and import charges, but definitely worth it.

  •   WOW
By on
Pros : Living in a time in which products often don't live up to their hype, I'm amazed the Table Foiler performed as advertised. After 3 or 4 practice pieces I was foiling like a pro. I wish I had moved on from foiling by hand long before this.
Cons : NONE
Other Thoughts : One of the things I like most is that the bigger pieces are easier and help move through an otherwise boring procedure in record time. It's easy to patch when needed too.

  •   very good product
By on
Pros : This product has changed my outlook on foiling. I have found it to be quick and easy once you get the hang of it. It centers the foil and crimps the edges. A little practice time before you start and you can zip along with no problems on most pieces. The machine is heavy and sturdy so it doesn't slip.
Cons : I have a tough time getting the foil started in the roller. Curves work but they are touchy.
Other Thoughts : Would love to see an attachment for the wave foil. Would like to see a storage compartment for the extra rollers

  •   Top Quality Tool
By on
Pros : Exceptionally fast foiler with professional results. Flexible foil sizes with easy change wheels. A pleasure to use with a small learning curve to top quality work.
Cons : Feet could be more slip proof but if used on a cork surface it isn't an issue.
Other Thoughts : Instructions should emphasis using a spare piece of glass the size to be foiled as a guide to set up the wheel height. After this is done, nothing can compete with the ease and speed of this tool. Stained glass teachers (large/on-going classes) should be provided one of these at cost to gain more product exposure. Since I took mine to a class, three have been sold as a direct result.
