Pros : WOW! Great to use blade. Why didn't I switch to this sooner? Super fast, smooth cutting. Like previous review, almost like machine is new. Much smaller kerf (gap). Can use side of blade like a grinder to perfect edges not cut. Liked being able to fully see my cutting line again, since it doesn't need that adapter to keep from wobbling like regular blade does. Cut 20 Cardinals wings in a FRACTION of time it take to cut a couple with normal blade!
Cons : Wonder how long it lasts since you only really go from the front on cutting instead of all around. From back is MUCH slower (like normal blade) and wobbles a bit. A little tight to initially get in the channel when installing.
Other Thoughts : Should probably include instruction on set up. Not sure if I'm supposed to use the stability adapter or not, but found blade pretty stable without it. If lasts long enough to justify expense, will definitely buy again!!!!

Pros : Speeds up cutting, made my saw cut much better and faster than new!
Cons : Since the blade is shaped the way it is, it doesn't pivot the way round ones do when you change direction.

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.
