My favorite SAW!, October 27, 2008 5 stars
Pros
This saw is a terrific tool for the glass studio! I also have a Diamond Laser Band saw, but the Taurus cuts RINGS around the band saw (Pun totally intended!) Taurus saw can cut in any direction, whereas the band saw only cuts in 1 direction. Comes with a DVD of instructions and cool hints for cutting more than 1 layer at a time. I LOVE IT!!! FAST! FUN! EASY!!!
Cons
My only complaint is the LOUD noise.

Novacan Patina, October 27, 2008 5 stars
Pros
I have been using this product for years. I can depend on it to provide a consisted patina to either lead or solder. It always gives my work an "antique" look. I like the black, but it also comes in copper, brass & dove grey, I think.
Cons
I really have no complaints about this product. ;-)
Other Thoughts
We apply it with a cotton ball, held by a clothes pin so the solution does not get on our hands or clothing. Works GREAT!
