BEST NIPPER EVER!!, November 19, 2012 5 stars
Pros
If you are prone to hand, arm, or shoulder pain like me, these nippers are fantastic. They do not send a jarring vibration up your arm like other popular nippers. The cut is smooth and easy on the hand. And I think they make better cuts than other nippers. I absolutely love them and would not use anything else!!
Cons
A bit pricey, but these are worth every penny.
Other Thoughts
You will be making mosaics for years to come. Invest in good tools that are not hard on your body and you will be a happy mosaicist for all those years!!

Good Idea, Bad Performance, October 16, 2010 1 stars
Pros
No stress to your hand, wrist, etc. Cuts quickly. Works well for cutting glass rods.
Cons
Wheels do not line up straight, therefore cuts not so good. Very difficult to cut 3/4" glass tile. Must hold with tweezers, otherwise fingers too close to cutting wheels. Guides are flimsy aluminum, don't really work well for positioning 3/4" glass tile.
Other Thoughts
It's a shame, the thought of not wearing out my hands cutting tile is wonderful, but unfortunately this machine is not the answer. Too many cons to really make it worthwhile, especially if you cut 3/4" tile.
