A Necessary Option for Stained Glass, June 23, 2023 5 stars
Pros
Perfect size for most of my projects, can use thumbtacks to tack design down easy to work on with solder and organizing Framing is easy with this
Cons
Other Thoughts
I have several of these boards to organize my projects as I work on them. I have the silver frames with thumbtacks to frame my piece (cover your design with clear vinyl, will protect it from water when you grind pieces) and then organizes your work and allows you to have several projects organized

Simply Outstanding, June 23, 2023 5 stars

This glass is simply outstanding for stained glass projects. It looks differently in the sun. The backing is dark so there is a front and a back.

A necessary tool!, June 23, 2023 5 stars
Pros
easy to use better cuts and control nice work surface
Cons
Curves are not as easy
Other Thoughts
I love this cutting system and I have the flying beetle. It provides a clean and usable work space. it helps do better cuts whether for stained glass or fused glass. It is necessary if you want to have really accurate and quick cuts. I just don't have the ability to do the hand cuts as accurate. This gives you a good straight edge, whether at angles or straight. If you cutting small squares, this makes extra easy. Love the tool

SO EASY, SO FUN, GREAT!, June 23, 2023 5 stars
Pros
Easy to Use Great Results
Cons
Wish it had a drawer or attachment to store accessories
Other Thoughts
The hardest part of stained glass for me is the copper foiling process. I have tried lots of alternatives and this is the easiest and most accurate tool to use. It takes a bit to get started but once you figure it (go slow at first), you will be foiling like a pro and getting it done really fast. I can't say enough about how great this little tool is and how much it helps me create a better product! Love It. Worth every dollar spent on it.
