  •   Still searching for the best circel cutter
By on
Pros : Size
Cons : Not worth the money - this is the 4th try at purchasing a product that will cut small circles - I think I am going to give up! This is not stable - you have a wobble even with the rubber others have recommended - instruction were not very good - pass this one up

  •   Not so sure about it
By on
Pros : It sounded great and it's heavy duty. When it works, it works well.
Cons : I can't figure out how to keep the blade from moving no matter how I tighten the screw. Maybe I'll get one circle out of it and then it moves.
Other Thoughts : It cam with very limited directions. If I can't get it to work properly, I'll have to return it.

  •   Just what I wanted!
By on
Pros : No problems slipping. Measurements true to the ruler. Easy to use. Not bulky.
Cons : Not good for dichroic.
Other Thoughts : I would have given this machine 5 stars, but it misses for me because of what happens to dichroic I use it on. I have tried cutting on the plain and dichroic sides and either way the dichroic chips off randomly as I break the edges away. I even asked my dichroic instructor and the owner of the local glass store to give me tips and/or demo how NOT to chip it, and they were not successful. I would not have purchased it had I known about this, because I specifically bought it for a project that needed various sizes of dichroic circles. On a happy note, I have been able to use it for other projects that do not require dichroic, and it works like a champ!

  •   Fast & Perfect Circles
By on
Pros : Very easy to use, and fast with consistent results....perfect circles. Smallest circles a bit harder but still perfect and requiring a minimum of edge grinding.
Cons : A cork" cutting table" surface keeps small glass pieces from slipping....my only suggestion to improve its usefulness.
Other Thoughts : This is a wonderful and very useful addition to the small glass studio, or glass club tool inventory.

  •   Great suppldier support
By on
Pros : I bought this and the handle broke. Delphi put me in touch with the supplier and they sent a replacement immediately. I haven't had any trouble since. Overall a very good product - I don't see anything better on the market.
Cons : The blade does slip from time to time, but as others here said, just check it before each cut to make sure it is tightened. Add a non-slip surface to hold the glass still - that's a no-brainer. It cuts circles well, but the smaller you go the harder it is to get a clean cut. Use breaking pliers to remove uneven bits, rather than a nipper.

  •   Easy Cut Lens Cutter
By on
Pros : The easiest machine I have ever worked with! It makes easy circles.
Cons : No cons.
Other Thoughts : I followed the suggestions of other users about putting a non-slip mat under the glass to hold it. Works like a charm, EVERY TIME!

  •   slips
By on
Pros : It does make perfect circles when it works
Cons : the carbide wheel slips constantly / comes out of alignment; sometimes MID-cut... so disappointing. I have ruined the most perfect glass selections with this thing.
Other Thoughts : one suggestion to put a rubber pad under the glass helps to keep the glass centered and this should be incorporated into the design. But there's no fixing the issue with the carbide wheel. it constantly comes out of alignment.

  •   Small and Compact
By on
Pros : Easy to use and will provide consistant circles when cutting a volume for a project
Cons : Glass tends to slide and slip when cutting. Have to make sure that you have a secure way to hold it during the rotation phase.

  •   Helpful, but Quirky
By on
Pros : Excellent aid in cutting even, accurate circles. This will surely be my best friend in my jewelry and ornament production. Very compact and, for the most part, easy to use.
Cons : The knob on the handle keeps falling out! I had to epoxy it in place. The screw did not appear stripped; not sure if I just got a flawed handle. Also, the cutter wheel itself tends to rotate out of alignment after a few uses. I have made it a routine to adjust alignment between circle scoring.
Other Thoughts : Another review here suggested to add a 'non-slip' surface to the base to keep your glass stable - This is INVALUABLE advice. I whole-heartedly agree!!

  •   Helpful!
By on
Pros : I'm finding it very easy to use.
Cons : The wheel with the cutting blades frequently moves after tightening it, so the blade shifts out of position and doesn't cut.
Other Thoughts : I put a flat rubber disk (used for opening jars)on the flat surface, and placed the glass piece on top of it. It helps keep the glass from sliding as you cut it. Also, be sure to stop cutting as soon as you complete the circle, or the glass will not break evenly.

  •   I love it
By on
Pros : this easy cut lens cutter is great. It scores a perfect circle in all sizes.
Cons : the glass does slip if you do not have a non slip surface under the glass. I purchase a thin sticky pad that is used to go under carpets, it works perfect.
Other Thoughts : highly recommend this product.

  •   great
By on
Pros : No glass artist would regret having this tool! even if they are on the fence... sure you may not use it as heavy as you once thought, but just the threat of being able to make a perfect circle "on demand" O the power, O the control, I see circles, I see circles, O me goodness!
Cons : Yes, the common theme that the glass will try to move out from under ye cutter while we making the cut ...Easy fix you know that squishy rubbery grid material that is everywhere? I have drawer liners made of it...Lowes has it as a anti-slip pad for under throw rugs... yea you know what i'm talking about! problem solved..now go cut some circles! with yo bad self UU' Ah
Other Thoughts : you will be amazed at the quality of this tool and the cutting torret can be replaced after all five blades are wasted ...

  •   Easy to use!
By on
Pros : I found this cutter to work very nicely. You do need to put something down to keep the glass from sliding around. I used a thin piece of rubbery shelf-type pad which actually came with another cutting system I had. This did the trick. Scores circles easily and smoothly but I still haven't found the best way to pop out the circles and have nice smooth edges. This would not be a problem with the cutter though - just me :)
Cons : Needs a little tweaking - see above.
Other Thoughts : Need to keep an eye on the cutter, that it stays screwed in tight and isn't loose. All in all, I am very satisfied and find it easier than any other circle cutting system I have tried.

  •   Circle Heaven
By on
Pros : This is a wonderful product. It makes cutting circles so much more precise and easy. It cuts down on grinding for that perfect circle. It has compact size for easy storage and the cutting blade rotates for multiple blades on a single disk.
Cons : You have to check the blade screw every time. With use it comes loose and sometimes makes your cut less than perfect so don't forget to check it before scoring. Also, it is sometimes on back-order for a long time. I waited 2 months to get mine....but it was worth the wait!
Other Thoughts : It will make your life much easier if you do circles. It's a must have.

  •   Works great with modification
By on
Pros : Much much easier than cutting small circles by hand.
Cons : Made in China, had a few flaws. Smooth plastic base has slight hump in it making it impossible to cut glass without it sliding around. I remedied this by gluing a piece of that rubbery shelf liner stuff on the base. Now it works great & my glass doesn't slide. Also the ruler markings on mine were printed off center making them useless. Doesn't matter since I covered it up with the shelf liner anyway.
Other Thoughts : Even though it has a couple of flaws it's worth buying if you cut small circles often and you're willing to do a simple modification.

  •   1 or 2 little glitches
By on
Pros : Ruler markings on the base and cutter arm make it easy to get accurate sizing, especially if you need to cut an extra or replacement piece afterwards. The spring loaded handle moves really easily, no real effort required!! Rubber stoppers on the bottom are great too.
Cons : Glass can slip on the smooth metal base, causing you to get incomplete lines. Sometimes the cutter wheel works a little loose and the blade becomes misalligned.
Other Thoughts : Some sort of non-slip coating on the cutting base to stop the glass sliding during scoring would be helpful.
