Pros : I love this cutting system. keeps me straight. Before I got this I could not hand cut two pieces the same size. It is easy to use over and over.
Cons : Just a tiny bit too long for my workspace. When I get a real set up my counters will be the normal size and it will be perfect.
Other Thoughts : I recommend this cutting system for beginners.

  •   A necessary tool!

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

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.
