great for precision cutting, April 13, 2015 5 stars
Pros
This system is great for geometric shapes and identical size strips, squares, etc. The angle tools and the protractor make triangles and diamonds incredibly easy. I have had other cutting systems for strips and angles but this is the best one I have ever used. Still getting used to the Flying Beetle cutter but it does speed things up and reduces the chances of bad cuts and mistakes. The Delphi online tutorial was a great help in setting it up and getting me started. It was clear, brief and to the point.
Cons
The printed instructions are not very clear and printed in a very amateur, photocopied looking document.
Other Thoughts
I would love to see a circle cutter for this system. It is great for the beginner through advanced glass artist. It would have saved me time, frustration and a lot of money in wasted glass when I was a beginner.

Best glass saw I have ever had, March 29, 2015 5 stars
Pros
I have been using Gemini saws for 20 years. When my most recent Taurus II.2 bit the dust I purchased the Taurus 3. Wow! What a huge improvement over the old saw. Immediately it was noticably quieter than my old saws. And it cuts so much faster and smoother than any saw I have ever had. I also found it much easier to clean since the saw detaches from the tub. I have not yet needed to change the blade but from watching the video instructions it appears to be much less effort than with the II.2. The instructional video that came with the saw is a scream! It won't win any academy awards but It is informative and entertaining; beats the heck out of reading an instruction manual!
Cons
Cost is still pretty steep.
Other Thoughts
Wish I had gotten this saw a long time ago instead of limping along with my old saw which had served me well but had seen better days.
