Glastar Circle/ Strip Cutter

Item# 5113
Glass circle strip cutter, September 7, 2020 4 stars
Pros
Easy to use and a great way to get consistent strips or circles cut.
Cons
There isn't any suction, so it can be tricky to keep it in one spot when cutting a circle. Also, you are limited on how small your circles can go.
Other Thoughts
Overall helpful product that saves stress when trying to make perfect circles, and saves time when cutting consistent strips.

This tape works so much better than any other brand I have tried. It really sticks to the glass well and results in a nice, clean final solder line.
