Crate Glass, September 19, 2022 5 stars
Pros
If you like a surprise, have a versatile use and need an economical source for groups, this is your pack.
Cons
Not always knowing exactly what you'll get can be a challenge.
Other Thoughts
We've found that working with what arrives, gives spontaneous inspiration for a certain project once the students see a sheet.

Clear Frit as filler, September 19, 2022 5 stars
Pros
Save money! Use this clear frit to save your colors.
Cons
Other Thoughts
When we first started fusing, we didn't realize that we could use this transparent frit to lengthen the life of our colored frit jars. Don't make our mistake. This jug goes along way in small frit-fusing molds.
Steel Wheel Glass Cutter

Steel Wheel Glass Cutter

Item# 425664
basic bestie, September 19, 2022 4 stars
Pros
We've had some of these in our classroom for 18 years.
Cons
Once the blade is dull, it's basically done. I'd love to see the model adapted to replace the cutting wheel.
Other Thoughts
We've found that having the oil in the handle is just a status symbol. This guy works great.
Christmas Tree Ornament Casting Mold

Christmas Tree Ornament Casting Mold

Item# 80722
hole strength, September 19, 2022 3 stars
Pros
It's size works as a small tree ornament or as a pendant for those who like large jewelry.
Cons
We found that the hole maker was weak and it broke.
Other Thoughts
We have HS students using these, so It's possibly our error. I just wish these tiny bits were reinforced somehow.

Soldering Iron Lion, September 19, 2022 5 stars
Pros
This iron is long-lasting while standing up to student abuse. We used to buy the Inland irons and this one is the closest we've found.
Cons
A few of the 15 that we have don't allow the replacement tip to slide in due to a variation in either the tip circumference or the iron circumference. It could be a slight rust issue with the older ones.
Pansy and Hibiscus Stake Casting Mold

Pansy and Hibiscus Stake Casting Mold

Item# 80512
Flower stakes, September 19, 2022 5 stars
Pros
The detail in the pattern is sharp and transfers well into glass. It's deep enough to create a ridge for color separation or line contours in one color fill.
Cons
They are a bit large and take quite a bit of glass to fill.
Other Thoughts
If you're looking for a yard or large indoor pot decoration, these work for either. These are a favorite in our fundraiser.

Versatile dragonfly pendant, September 19, 2022 5 stars
Pros
The detail in this pendant mold give a raised contour that "prints" well in a solid color.
Cons
We tend to short it for a smaller size and rounded edges. Some people find it heavy if we fill it up.
Other Thoughts
This design is one of our favorites among our planty friends.
