Terrific support. Even when I have a hard drive crash twice they helped me reinstall my software. I run the Professional version. Could not ask for better service.

not as good as the lead version, June 4, 2012 3 stars
Pros
One part of working in a lead reduced studio.
Cons
Other Thoughts
I only use it when I need to. I sometimes overlay it with 60/40 to get a better looking finish when I can. It is ok if you are using a dark patina. I have tried a variety of irons and temps. I found a cool temp works the best and gives the best finish. It does not flow well nor leaves a shiny finish. I still use 73 solder for most of my work with masks and ventilation.
Edgemaster II Glass Foiler

Edgemaster II Glass Foiler

Item# 7215
Not a good buy, June 1, 2009 2 stars
Pros
Good design. Needs more work on the details. Could be made to be a great tool but still not there.
Cons
Overall design is good. Details are a problem. Clearance distance is critical so it will work but it is hard to set and maintain. The tension on the rolls is not consistent- settings do not hold. One time they tighten and then they get loose. I can do foil quicker and better by hand. Save your money and just practice doing it by hand. Remember we are doing art. Tools are not always the best answer.

Best blade, May 16, 2009 5 stars
Pros
By far a must have blade. The best blade for all but production work. Smooth grindless cuts speeds up the work. Cut thin glass without chipping. Small enough that it does not bind on curves. Sideways cuts are smooth and effortless.
Cons
None to date
Other Thoughts
Money well spent.

Canfield Solder, April 10, 2009 5 stars
Pros
The best I've used. Even melt-smooth finish. I use with a gel type flux. Seems to work the best with a hot tip
Cons
Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.

Only way to go, January 11, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Having messed with pieces of came and tried to keep it straight - to no avail - this is the only way to go. Easy to handle with little if any waste. Just cut what you need. No left over pieces to little to use.
Cons
None

Nicks Mate, November 28, 2008 5 stars
Pros
Good device for holding small pieces of glass for grinding. I have one for each grinder station. Also helps in holding pieces when using the small bits mounted on top of the larger cylinder.
Cons
None
