Pros : Easy grip
Cons : No way to tighten pad so if you are working with straight lines, you have to keep adjusting it.

Pros : These running pliers have saved me hours/days of frustration and many sheets of glass, especially when cutting tricky curves or ‘unfriendly’ types of glass. Wish I had bought these years ago.

  •   Love these!

Pros : These pliers have made a huge difference in the way I cut glass. I am now able to cut deeper curves and longer straight lines with less breakage. Well worth the money!
Cons : Not quite as effective on thicker glass, but a light tap underneath the score helps.
Other Thoughts : You do need to practice when you first get these to learn how much pressure to use. If you use the same pressure as with the heavier pliers you're used to you can shatter the glass.

Part 2 of a 2 part series on the basics of glass fusing. In this weeks article Donna gives advice on indispensable tools for beginner glass fusers. In the beginning, I used one larger tool, and that was a Super Star Grinder. It is still running, running, running. Others have come, and some have gone, but this one is still here. For smaller cold working projects, diamond hand pads do a nice job. The next cutting tool that I bought was a saw. My Taurus 3 Ring Saw has worked extremely well for me, and I love what I can do with it that I couldnt do before, but I worked for 2 years before I purchased this nifty item. As for cutters and breakers, I have many, but for me, the Silberschnitt breaker pliers are a must for small (1/4) strip breaking.....saves so much glass. I use both

Step 1 Cut a piece of glass in any wild shape or size you like. (This piece was just a leftover piece of glass from a stained glass window.) Step 2 Place a drape mold in the kiln. Since the piece of glass may run down to the shelf, it is best to have a piece of Fiber Paper under the mold. (I have used a bisque fired coffee mug for my mold. The glass will melt down around this mold so be sure to pick something were the sides go straight down or flare out, or the glass will break removing it from the mold.) Step 3 Drape a thin piece of Fiber Paper over the drape mold that is about the same size as the piece of glass. Step 4 Fire the glass at cone 017. Step 5 Wash the piece using a soft brush to remove
