Product Description

Use with Super Slicer attachment #57108 to cut slab glass, pattern bars, millefiori, streamers, cans, rods and other small objects in perfectly parallel thin slices. Cuts slices as thin as 1/8". Super Slicer blade only fits the Taurus 3 ring saw #57003. Includes 2 orange grommets.

The flocked belt (sold separately) #5750 is recommended for use with this blade, providing the best blade support and stability while cutting.

  • Blade Shape: Flat .040 width x .150 length.
  • Grit is fine.
  • Material Thickness Capacity: 3/4", normal use is for slicing thin wafers in rods and pattern bars, and scroll cutting of fused glass up to 3/8" thickness.
  • Average Blade Life: 50-100 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.

  •   Good Taurus Blade

Pros : You can use this for thick slab cutting. Be careful as the blade is not as sturdy as a mega blade. This does not eat up as much glass but has a tendency to bend while cutting. You must compensate during the cut. Gently! But it still holds up well with many, many cuts without problems of breaking.
Cons : It flexes during the cut which means it doesn't keep a straight line for a slab cut. You must compensate for that.
Other Thoughts : Doesn't eat up too much glass during cutting. I really like the mega blade better for cutting straight cuts on slabs. They all cost about the same.

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.
