@MrsJake: I think the products would say how long. I am thinking it would be in the range of 7-8 days.

Is the no days adhesive used for mosaics good for glass on glass --- such as is it foggy when applied and heated eliminating value of transparent glass mosaic pieces. Also, does the adhesive stick on both the substrate and glass, etc. If not, what non-water adhesive would work with the no-days. Thanks.

Power Max II Deluxe Grinder, June 22, 2015 5 stars
Pros
A powerful and long lasting machine. I wrote a review in 2008 about my grinder and here seven years or so later it is still operating without any evidence of weakening. I very highly rate it. See other thoughts.
Cons
Throws water, no other way to put it! You will need a Mr Splash or equivalent to protect walls and or furniture around it.
Other Thoughts
With the extras it comes with, it is cheaper than it was when I bought it. While the foot pedal is very helpful, it is not a necessity. But the smaller bits and shield holder are. This is a fabulous buy on a fabulous grinder.
Flat Top Purse Hanger

FLAT TOP PURSE HANGER, May 6, 2015 5 stars
Pros
This is an attractive item. A real pro over the round-headed hangers is that there is much more flexibility in the shape of the cabochon. I made one for my wife on Christmas and she raves over it. Anytime jewelry comes up for discussion, she tells me to order and make some more. So, I am dipping my big toe in as of now and buying three. FYI, everyone calls me the last of the big spenders (sarcastically.)
Cons
None
Other Thoughts
I see with the round-headed writeups that some problems have occurred with the set screw falling out, and several reviewers recommended putting a little glue on the screw to set it. Sounds like a good idea. I haven't had a problem so far.

adjustable filigree rings, May 2, 2015 5 stars
Pros
These rings are really nice and I like it that they are sterling silver plated. Strictly for the gals because of their lacy design. Adjustable means anyone just about can wear them.
Cons
No cons.
Other Thoughts
Make 10 mini cabochons at a time. Doesn't take much time or materials. Glue them to the ring top with E6000 and...viola. I sell these for $5 for the first one and $4 for each one thereafter. Don't hesitate to make them a little eye catching. Girls 10 and up love these. They are also popular with people to buy for future gifts. A really nice low-cost addition to your line.

Studio Pro silverback foil, July 11, 2014 5 stars
Pros
Finally, I found a silverbacked copperfoil that sticks. Any I have tried in the past (canfield mainly) is horrible. Recommend highly just on that basis. Try it!!
Cons
A little fragile (can tear sometimes, but can work around the problem.) Also, seems to wrinkle when applied. I use a wallpaper seamroller to burnish and that helps iron out the wrinkles.
Other Thoughts
I say buy just on the basis of good stickiness. I haven't used 1/4 in the past, but think I will go to it. It is only 1/32 of an inch wider than standard 7/32, or half that on each side of the glass. A little more expensive, but really helps to make straighter solder lines. Try 1/4 inch and see how you like it. Because it is thin, Foiling seems to work better when using an actual foiler.

16 Ga Pre-tinned copper wire, May 11, 2014 5 stars
Pros
I have used this type of wire for many years. To me, this gauge is a must. I use this gauge for hooks primarily, but it can also be used to reinforce joints on foil or corners on 1/4" and up came. A must for every copperfoil crafter.
Cons
None
Other Thoughts
I have also used this gauge to use as "came" on free-form panels, and it does a great job. Be sure to stretch the wire first if using that way. This wire takes solder fairly well, but since it transfers heat to other metal areas --- came, etc it works best with lots of flux (a lot). When using flux this liberally, you need to be extra careful to keep surrounding areas clear of flux or you will get solder where you don't want it.
