Beetle Bits Cutting System

Item# 5426
easy to set up and use, September 17, 2020 5 stars
Pros
Once you start using this system, each cut is perfect because your hand does not wobble with a hand-held glass cutter. Just apply the correct pressure and much less waste!
Cons
harder to use cutting smaller shapes
Other Thoughts
easy to cut complicated shapes in large quantities. works like a jig without the complicated set up

mini size, max power!, July 30, 2013 4 stars
Pros
for the small size, the motor is powerful and this go-to workhorse is able to keep up with a full day of grinding!
Cons
the water drainage tube needs to be redesigned - when the water is at grinding level its always running out of the tube
Other Thoughts
portable and love the red color!!

super fast shaping!, July 29, 2013 5 stars
Pros
Put on this bit for your initial shaping, especially for bowls, plates. Does tend to chip - so be mindful of your line and switch to a finer bit when you are near the line. Saves hours of time!
Cons
If you don't use a finer bit, you will have to increase the temperature because your glass will have chips. Bye Bye perfect circles with crisp edges!
Other Thoughts
Remember to wear eye protection and also consider wearing a face shield and use an extra large grinder shield for safety.
