Table Foiler

Table Foiler

Pros
Fast, accurate, easy to use with a little practice. Little or no waste of foil. I have two, one for black backed and one for regular foil. For larger pieces and straight pieces it keeps the foil perfectly centered. This tool will cut your foiling time in half. You still have to burnish, but it's easy when your foil is centered on the edge. If you do stained glass you need a table foiler.
Cons
The small pieces still have to be hand foiled, and you can't do tight indentations.
Other Thoughts
If you find some of the rolls are a little sticky on the table of the foiler just cut a piece of paper the same size as the roll of foil before you put the foil in the three holders and let the foil spin on the paper. With the paper "washer" the foil never sticks to the table.

Hakko 556 Soldering Iron, April 5, 2011 5 stars
Pros
Excellent product! This is the best iron I have ever used. Heats up very quickly, and stays hot. The built in temperature control works very well. The slim design and light weight of the iron make it ideal for soldering for long periods of time with no fatigue. I would highly recommend this iron.
Cons
Haven't found any.

Unbreakable Blade, August 13, 2009 3 stars
Pros
When it is new is cuts great. You can cut any desired design with no sanding afterward.
Cons
The blades just don't seem to last very long. They still have plenty of diamond and cutting ability when they break.
