Product Description

The Ultimate in Cutting Freedom!
The Taurus 3 Ring Saw Separating Blade opens up so that you can make an inside cut in the middle of a piece of glass up to 11" in size. All you need to do is drill a hole anywhere on the piece of glass, open up your Separating Ring Blade while it is still in the saw, put it through the hole, rejoin the blade and cut. The Separating Blade is made from a stainless steel wire that is coated with the same high quality process as all Gemini blades and then has a coupling attached to it which is also coated for protection and smooth action. This blade gives you the ability to make internal cuts without an entry point.

The addition of the Separating Blade increases the versatility of the Taurus Ring Saw and provides owners with another tool to expand their creative abilities by letting them cut intricate designs, shapes and patterns on the inside of a piece of glass just as quickly and easily as they can cut on the outside. The Separating Blade Kit comes with 2 orange grommets.
 

  • Blade Shape: Round .072 Diameter (note 1/16" equals .063 and 1mm equals .0394)
  • Grit is aggressive.
  • Material Thickness Capacity: 3/8", normal use is 1/8" art glass, 1/4" soft wall tile.
  • What to Avoid: Do not use for ceramic tile, 3/8" fused glass pieces, or thick material in general.
  • Average Blade Life: 40-60 hours

There are universal truths about all of the blades that hold true for all of them:
  1. All blades cut the same materials: glass, tile, stone, shell, nonferrous metals, hard plastics such as acrylic and lexan, and anything that has a similar density to these materials.
  2. All blades use the same belt and grommets. Blades are interchangeable with the same belt and grommets and do not need to be changed unless they are excessively worn.
  3. Always let the blade do the cutting. Forcing the blade through the material in a hurry will not only cause a slower cut but can also shorten the blade life. There is an optimum speed for each blade in each material; you can feel it while you are cutting. Sensitivity to this causes extremely long blade life Defined it is that point at which you get maximum cutting speed for minimal pressure.

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

Perhaps youve had a bad experience with bottle cutting in the past. Or perhaps youve never tried it because the process seems too daunting. Fret no more. Dr. Lauren (I’m not really a doctor, I just play one in this blog) is in the house. Here are my 7 recommendations for relieving bottle cutter seperation anxiety. 1. Practice good bottle hygiene. Make sure that you remove the entire label from the bottle you want to cut. Even the smallest amount of sticky residue will interfere with the scoring process. We recommend using rubbing alcohol to get most labels off, but if you have a really stubborn label try nail polish remover with acetone. 2. Always keep your cutting wheel oiled – this is a big one. The better you oil the wheel, the smoother your cut will be – a lot of the separation issues I hear about are
