Pros : On thin glass, you can break out very intricate curves with no flares, etc. The scores run beautifully. On thick art glass, with a good score the glass breaks very cleanly. I really appreciated Morton's tips on how to train your scoring and breaking pressure. I am still working on it, but I have improved a lot. This is the first tool I grab for breaking.
Cons : Occasionally, no matter what I do, the glass refuses to break. This is often thicker glass near the rolled edge. It is probably operator error, but I am glad to have my pliers or grozers then. Very small pieces don't like to break either.
Other Thoughts : I have not played much yet on breaking out circles.

The official answer from the glass manufacturers is, All tested compatible glasses have been tested by the FDA for food bearing surfaces and were determined to be suitable.However, if you add other processes or compounds to the items, for example paint, stains, decals, glazes, etc. it is important to check that these items are also approved for food bearing surfaces. In addition it is of the utmost importance that dinnerware items be properly annealed, especially if youre going to place hot food on them - the thermal shock could cause a break in poorly annealed items. This Randys ProTip brought to you from the book Introduction to Glass Fusing by Petra Kaiser. VisitWardell Publications. Also, at Delphi we take food safety and dinnerware very seriously. We always recommend that certain glasses are capped with clear. These are usually irids, dichro and glass with texture, since these can also trap
