Product Description

Treat Yourself to the Best
A real workhorse, the DL5000 is one of the biggest and fastest bandsaws available for glass. Now you're limited only by your imagination! This top of the line bandsaw cuts intricate shapes in glass up to 12" wide and 3/4" thick. Super powerful 1/2 hp variable speed motor makes easy work of even the thickest glass. The recirculating water pump keeps a steady flow of water at the cutting point, and the oversize 15" x 13" cutting table provides stability for large sheets of glass.

The special 3/16" diamond blade easily makes the most intricate cuts in glass. Want to cut a 24" circle? No problem. How about an "S" curve in dalle de verre slab glass? You can do it all with the DL5000!

For making intricate cuts in marble, granite, ceramic, travertine and porcelain, a special 1/4" diamond tile blade is available (Item #7397RB).

  •   5000 Saw
By on
Pros : The saw cuts like a dream through a variety of glasses including thick pot melts. Set up was easy and saw is easy to use.
Cons : Very loud! I have to wear ear plugs. The blades are poorly made, I got maybe 2 hours of cutting time on 1 blade and maybe 3 hours on the second. I am currently looking for a different manufacturer for blades. The saw is also very messy, water flows everywhere and the water tray is too small to catch any of it. I have placed the entire saw and tray into a large plastic container to catch the water run off from the table. This is working well for me.
Other Thoughts : I purchased this saw as a step up from my DL 3000 because I have just worn it out. I thought that this saw would be a little more sturdy for the amount of use I put a saw through, so far it just seems more expensive. The blade cost compared to blade quality is horrible and the noise level is unbelievable. I would not purchase this saw again but would purchase 3 of the DL 3000 for the same cost.

Pros : It is able to make complex cuts. Blades might last as long as claimed if all you want to do is straight cuts.
Cons : Blade breakage has been much too frequent-they last no where near as long as claimed. My last blade lasted 10 hours! The saw itself is very poorly constructed.
Other Thoughts : Sent mine back to the manufacturer for service-no improvement. Don't lose any sleep over wishing you had one-this one has been a nightmare.

Pros : Cuts either stone or glass very well, easily set up to use on the job site or on a table...
Cons : Could use a larger water tray...
Other Thoughts : It made cuts for my kitchen and bathrooms I couldn't have done any other way during my stone projects, now I can enjoy its use for my stained glass projects.....

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.
