Pros : Easy to use, Versatile, Precise, Lightweight, Makes quick work most any cut, and of ultra tough cuts (I still love and prefer to hand-cut, but I got this specifically for big, super severe cuts, so I could keep my designs exactly how I wanted them, and also not have the stress of potentially shattering a larger piece just because of my creative stubbornness), Cuts through other materials like metal for frames and wood (of certain thickness), Great for sparking imagination, Saves glass!
Cons : Plastic outer components (but that does make sense, metal would very heavy, and probably even more expensive, I just wish it felt a little studier for the price), Pattern lines 'wash' off without specific application, Can get pretty messy, Takes a good while to get used to - it doesn't have the feel of a grinder or a typical saw, so you have to really get the feel for it, You'll still need to run most pieces through a grinder (at least some edges, in my experience), Can snap off small corners if you're not very careful and learn how to maneuver it properly, Makes me feel like I'm "cheating" in the glass cutting process, hahaha
Other Thoughts : Okay, so, it definitely has its cons, HOWEVER, I still love my ring saw! I definitely recommend a few things - get a foot pedal to attach to the power cord so you can control the saw! It made a huge difference in precision. Also, use a GOLD Sharpie to mark your patterns, since they act like paint markers, THEN leave your pattern piece in place until the gold ink dries, or set the piece back down, and outline it again over the gold ink with a black fine tip Sharpie. I know that seems like a pain, but it's worth it. It's the only way, so far, that I've figured out how to keep pattern lines from flooding off the glass, because the saw can create quite a bit of backsplash. The black fine line give you the precise place to follow next to, the gold makes it visible and helps it stick. Remember, the saw blades cuts OUT and removes a line of glass the width of the saw blade, unlike hand-cutting, which doesn't remove any glass. Other than that, practice and experiment! It's worth it. :)

Every artist that works with glass knows how important it is to have the right tools. Without them, we’d never be able to bring our visions to life. When cutting glass for a project, a quality cutter is essential. Gemini Saw Company has thought of what we need when cutting glass with the Taurus 3 Ring Saw. Improving on former models, this ring saw has a 1/5 HP motor and is so lightweight at just 14 lbs., you can take it anywhere. Plus, the saw part snap outs of the water bath, turning it into a hand-held saw. It has its own water so it can easily be used as a portable saw. But perhaps the best feature of all is the round diamond bit blade. It’s a 5-3/4” multi-directional blade which means you can cut seamlessly in any direction you choose. The greater blade exposure means more precise cuts.

Im always looking for ways to use my scrap, so I decided to give the round screen melt set a try. I had mixed feelings about it, because I made the mistake of not following the fusing schedule, and tried to wing it with my pre-programmed kiln. Despite the error of my ways, I ended up with some very pretty glass using two colors of opal art glass scraps. With my screen melt complete, I used a Sharpie pen to trace out my images, and began cutting them with my Taurus 3 Ring Saw. Once I finished the shapes, I put the pendants and purse hangars back in my skutt Firebox 14 kiln, for a fire polish on the slow tack fuse. Some got bails, some wire wrapping, and the others were epoxied to purse hangers. Looking back, If you follow the Delphi directions labeled as users manual in the

My husband and I recently met a spectacular couple, a genuine cowgirl and cowboy. Besides being fortunate enough to purchase a very sweet horse from them, we are proud to be able to call them our friends. While at their home I learned that her one of her best friends, her horse, had passed away the previous year. Yoda had carried her though years on the Rainbow Riders drill flag team, taken her to reigning championships, and safety along countless miles of trails. I wanted to do something special for her, and also try something new for me. I remembered seeing an article in the Delphi newsletter about making fused glass silhouettes from a photograph. While at her home I snuck a picture of her and Yoda sliding to victory, on my cell phone. I downloaded the picture and adjusted it to an appropriate size for a 10 by 10
