Christmas Mold, September 3, 2018 3 stars
Pros
You can get shapes you wouldn’t be able to get with out the mold. And there are lots of different colors that can be used.
Cons
Lots of clean up on the edges even though I tried to keep frit from edge of mold. I will then have to carefully fire polish the pieces.
Other Thoughts
I have the star mold and under fill it to cut down on the edge problem.

Great, May 31, 2016 5 stars
Pros
Worth every penny I paid for it! Sharp and easy on the hand when using it. The guard keeps chips from flying and directs them into container.
Cons
None yet
Other Thoughts
The directions are in German with no translation. I'd like to know how to change the wheels if they are available.

This does me know good! How can I learn from a class held 5 years ago. I can not find a video to help me. I've gone through your video listing and they all come back to me as not available. KL

drop-thru mold, January 19, 2014 3 stars
Pros
Great idea. Will review again when I get a successful vase.
Cons
I am having trouble casting the foot part. It doesn't want to let go of the glass very easily. Maybe something I am doing wrong?
Other Thoughts
would like multiple foot molds so I don't have to run kiln for 1 little thing.

Dicro float glass, January 29, 2013 4 stars
Pros
I love the finished product as it is very delicate yet the colors are vibrant. My friends seem to like the finished product. I haven't had any for sale yet so I don't know if my customers will like it as well as my other dicro pieces.
Cons
Hard to cut, especially curves. I've had a terrible time finding the 2 sided leaf bails!

coe 82 kit, January 19, 2013 3 stars
Pros
Beautiful when finished & a totally different look than I have with my other jewelry. Very soft looking but eyecatching.
Cons
I found it difficult to cut as it is so hard especially the curves. It takes some practice to stack the glass attractively. I do not know how my customers will like the new look.
Other Thoughts
Need a supply of finishing supplies.
