Good for small pieces of glass, May 21, 2011 3 stars
Pros
This stand is sturdy enough for small pieces of glass and ever so slightly faster to assemble than building your own.
Cons
It gets a bit tipsy in the 10x10 range.

Waste of money, May 12, 2011 1 stars
Pros
There are no pros to this product.
Cons
Shrinks and rolls up over your glass during firing. I tried cutting a larger swath and weighting down the edges with glass pebbles, it dragged them across the shelf and into the piece I was firing!
Other Thoughts
This stuff is truly a waste of money.

Studio-quality mold, January 23, 2011 5 stars
Pros
These hold up wonderfully to repeated firings -- I can't remember the last time I had to reapply kilnwash to them.
Cons
None.
Other Thoughts
I wish they came in a size scaled for 1.5L bottles. (The mold Delphi carries for 1.5L bottles is unfortunately not correctly sized for making vessels with raised sides.)

Exactly what you expect, December 3, 2010 5 stars
Pros
It's thick, heavy and sturdy.
Cons
None discovered so far!
Other Thoughts
Are they measured like lumber? The one I received is 20.75 inches long.
Recirculating Submersible Pump for Lap Grinders

Recirculating Submersible Pump for Lap Grinders

Item# 42561

Works well, April 20, 2009 4 stars
Pros
Doesn't leak. Provides a steady water steam.
Cons
Hard to fit included hose over the output nozzle. Documentation is .. stark.
Other Thoughts
If you're having trouble getting the included tube onto the nozzle (and you will), heat a cup of water and stick the rubber tube into it for a minute to soften it. It will still be a struggle, but that's how I mentioned to get the tube on. The tube supplied with the pump falls out of the water intake on the Crystallite lap grinder when dry. It seems to stick better when wet. A small brass tube comes with the pump kit that may be an adapter for the water intake, but it's never mentioned in the instruction manual, so its purpose is unclear.

Adds sparkle in any layer, April 3, 2009 5 stars
Pros
This is the dichroic glass I use most -- not only does it impart a beautiful sparkle on top, but it turns any transparent glass into a dichroic-looking glass when used as a base layer!
Cons
none
Other Thoughts
When marking with a sharpie, be sure to mark on the non-coated side. Marker does not like to come off the dichroic coating!
15 Black Magnetic Necklace - 3 Pack

15" Black Magnetic Necklace - 3 Pack

Item# 704159
Great length for chokers, March 25, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Places the pendant right at the base of your throat. The magnet is strong -- I've never had one let go, unlike other magnetic bails I've come into contact with.
Cons
The wire is stiff. Not like a bare metal neck wire or collar, but stiffer than a chain.
Other Thoughts
I don't like wearing these myself, but customers seem to be quite fond of them. The black covering appears to be some kind of plastic, but it's not at all cheap looking.
Silver Napkin Rings - 2 Pack

Silver Napkin Rings - 2 Pack

Item# 85420
Easy way to make eye-catching products, March 25, 2009 5 stars
Pros
These couldn't be easier to use -- figure a way to make a cab of the proper size, and glue it in. If it's just a hair bigger, you can even press-fit the cab, and the bezel will conform to it and hold securely.
Cons
None that I've found.
Other Thoughts
Never mind the mold -- I make cabs for these with two 3/8" squares. Position the top square rotated 45 degrees from the bottom square (so you have an 8-pointed square), and they round up beautifully.
Large Sterling Silver Jewelry Bail - 1 Piece

Large Sterling Silver Jewelry Bail - 1 Piece

Item# 63915
Just add glue!, March 25, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Pleasantly sturdy.
Cons
Other Thoughts
These are harder than your average sterling bail, which tends to be bendable. I use them with E-6000 or a 5-minute epoxy.
