Pros : Once you start using this system, each cut is perfect because your hand does not wobble with a hand-held glass cutter. Just apply the correct pressure and much less waste!
Cons : harder to use cutting smaller shapes
Other Thoughts : easy to cut complicated shapes in large quantities. works like a jig without the complicated set up

I dont have just one favorite tool, but there is one that I use virtually every time I work on a project. As you know, having the right tool for the job, makes the job a whole lot easier. Beetle Bits Cutting System with the Flying Beetle Attachment This system provides the speed and precision glass cutting that a busy studio demands. Cutting strips, squares, angles and more are perfect every time, and this tool does it in half the time of other systems. Be sure to train your entire staff to use this amazing system and theyll all be anxious to use it. Plus, they now have a 35 bar to use with your system, so cutting large pieces of glass is fast and accurate. There is a video on the Business Center, under Studio Resources that demonstrates all the wonderful things this system will do.
