Starter glass, good buy, May 11, 2014 4 stars
Pros
So I bought this pack and a second crate for starter glass, where color/type isnt important as much as having SOMETHING. And in that it's a great starter set, and all easy to store.
Cons
Lots oft he same color. I think I have enough red to last a lifetime. But there was a sizable amount of other colors too
Other Thoughts
I used this crate as storage under my desk when done, for all the extra glass (red) when i had my shelves were full.

And storage too!, May 11, 2014 5 stars
Pros
This was a heck of a lot of fun to open. All pieces arrived safely and I bought this and one other crate for a starter set of glass where I ddidn't rewlly need anything, because I needed everything.
Cons
The selection here was great. Shipping via truck is pricey, but understanably so, the truck arrived and just had my stuff on it.. When you consider that, that's pretty good. Te guy unloaded and put them in the garage by my door so i could open the crates and empty them outised before making a mess of my shop.
Other Thoughts
Once I unloaded this crate, i flipped it over and added wheels to the bottom, then put this crate under my desk and put the glass back in, instant storage!

Aeroscope is cute!, May 11, 2014 4 stars
Pros
This is a great little kit and i'll probably buy some refills now that i have the instructions and patterns. Im looking forward to making these for every kid I know,
Cons
The hardware that comes with it is sturdy and solid, and the little mirrors survived shipping when the box did not.
Other Thoughts
The instructions are cryptic at times, more photos would suit netter, but I get the gist. The refill kit is not much less, but probably fair considering the only thing you don't need after this is the instructions and patterns, all paper.

Why foil another way?, May 11, 2014 5 stars
Pros
Great little device that makes foiling go super fast, and they turn out clean and crimped
Cons
If your inside cuts are smaller than the wheel, you'll have to hand foil at least that section.
Other Thoughts
Thicker glass makes foiling a little less accurate with this, but I've foiled whole projects with 50-60 pieces in one evening. It's a great little device.

Awesome customer service, best tool ever, January 26, 2012 4 stars
Pros
This tool is the most important one in my kit, I love it. It's fun to use and makes me look like a pro with zero experience. Mine broke the first week, but it comes with a 3 year warranty.
Cons
Well, it did break the first week out of the box. But again, they fixed it quick.
Other Thoughts
I love my ring saw, and it has taken my new-to-stained-glass, beginner learning curve to "looking pro" overnight, literally. I highly recommend it!
