Product Description

Ingenious running pliers have a patented pressure system that allows them to be positioned from any angle - great for running difficult scores, especially inside curves. Just center the score line in the "window" and apply even pressure to produce accurate and clean breaks. Replacement jaws available (#40485). Made with a non-metal composite.

Delphi Tip: After scoring your circle on the Scoring and Breaking Mat, use Ringstar Pliers to apply even pressure on the score at 3" intervals around the circle, running the score.

  •   not happy at all
By on
Pros : none
Cons : The jaws of the pliers I received do not line up evenly. If I put the score line evenly in the window, the breaker point on the other jaw is not lined up and instead of a clean break I get crushed glass. Very frustrating!
Other Thoughts : Too bad I didn't try them out right away and am past the 30 day refund period. Now I have to buy another pair of pliers.

  •   An absolute must for inside curves
By on
Pros : Breaking out inside curves just got easier! These Ringstar pliers are an absolute essential to add to your toolbox. You do need to take your time and listen to the score as you're running it, but with this tool I'm able to break out curves that didn't stand a chance before. I recommend this tool to everyone I know.
Cons : None

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
