I never have to worry about my panels shifting or growing with these! I encourage my students to use them everytime, it prevents a lot of headaches in the end result!

Love this book, March 31, 2012 4 stars
Pros
I used this book for several pannels, and made adjustments for a few of my windows. When I looked at this I wished I had the size house some of these windows show cased. There were a few where I used half of the picture to made a panel.
Cons

Great Book!, March 31, 2012 4 stars
Pros
I showed this book in my beginning stained glass class and 4 out of 5 chose the same pattern. I requested not to have competition and suggested that everyone choose a different pattern. It was a hit! We had to do this several times, but eventually everyone had a different pattern. This is a great book especially if you love western designs. A few had to make adjustments to the pattern but that too proved to be a great experience showing them how adjustments can be made to a pattern and no one would know the difference. Everyone enjoyed the class and their designs.
Cons

Love It, July 1, 2011 5 stars
Pros
I have had this saw now for over a year now and have had no problems with it. I do have a band saw, but enjoy this one much better. In the time I've had this so far only the belt has had to be replaced. I make sure I totally clean it each time after use and remove all the grit. I introduced this to my students and after being afraid of using it they look forward to cutting questionable curves. I admit you do have to work pretty quickly when using it, but have found that using Mark Stay helps a great deal.
Cons
none for me
Other Thoughts
I also like the wide surface area. Wish the head had a spot light to shine on the cutting surface - Maybe that will be their next model.
