Product Description

Now Better Than Ever!
Cut in any direction and create intricate cuts and inside curves the easy way! Use the incredibly long-lasting round diamond-coated blade to make cuts in all directions on the 12" x 12" work surface. You can even make inside cuts easily by drilling a pilot hole in glass and passing the saw blade through the hole before cutting. Since the blade size is only .063" in diameter, you have greater flexibility cutting intricate shapes and narrow cut lines. Built-in automatic pump keeps saw cool and spotlight shines directly on your work, making it easier to see pattern lines and eliminating shadows. Features a 1/4 hp motor and includes 6 Turbo blades. Five year limited manufacturer warranty (excludes blades).

All This Plus
The Omni-2 Wire Saw Plus has a faster, more powerful motor to cut glass and other hard materials quickly. This motor is located on top, away from the water. The improved built-in automatic pump completely eliminates the need for fresh water reservoir and used water containers. The blades also have significantly longer life to save you money and time.

  •   My First Saw
By on
Pros : I've only had this saw a couple of months but have already found it to be just what I needed. I like the wire saw blades as opposed to the circular blades that come on other saws. The replacement blades are much more economical too. It doesn't have very many moving parts which is good and it is really sturdy.
Cons : I did have a little trouble putting the first blade in, but once I got it in, it has stayed in and I haven't replaced it yet. But I like that it doesn't fall out either.
Other Thoughts : I put it inside a rubbermaid container, big rectangular one, and that keeps water from splashing all over. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.

  •   Tweak Me
By on
Pros : A must-have for serious glass cutters as it allows for intricate cuts otherwise impossible. Ample table space allows for larger cuts, and the wire, coated on all sides, allows for multiple direction approaches and longer life.
Cons : Parts are made of plastic and wear out easily. It is not easy to change the blade. Our allen screw stripped out and had to be replaced. The blade guides wear easily, so my husband had one fabricated out of brass (don't do this if you don't know what you're doing) and we solved that problem. Motor is noisy, and water is directed on the blade only if you cut straight on. Side or rear cuts often pull the blade away from the water flow. Finger guide is supposed to save fingers, but the blade is so gentle, I prefer it if it weren't there. My finger protector suffered plastic fatigue and wore out, and my husband is fabricating me a smaller hose holder allowing for closer cutting with multiple direction holes cut into it. Last complaint isn't their fault: water shoots on glass and pours on floor. I have stuck mine in a plastic shallow bin to avoid this mess.
Other Thoughts : Through my cons, you might think I don't like or appreciate this tool. Quite the contrary; Gryphon has an excellent base idea which needs tweaking. If mine ever breaks, I will buy another one. If you're a hack and just plan on doing simple geographical designs, this tool is not for you. If you really want to create something more elaborate, this machine should be on your wish list.

  •   Omni wire saw
By on
Pros : This saw cuts in any direction as claimed. The blades last for quite awhile and are real inexpensive to replace. Over all I'm quite happy with my purchase of this saw.
Cons : The chucks are made out of nylon and need to be tightened with care. you also need to make sure that the blades are seated properly in the chuck. It comes with an extra chuck but I would suggest that you get some spares which are very inexpensive.
Other Thoughts : Others have complained about the noise when using the saw but I don't think it is any worse than any power tool. As for the water that runs over the table, I found a tray like you get in a cafeteria and the saw in it to contain the water works great.

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.
