  •   Nice First Grinder
By on
Pros : I purchased this grinder 2.5 years ago and it shows no signs of wear and tear. It is stable, has enough power for my hobbyist use and is meeting my expectations. Would recommend it.
Cons : The bit that came with it developed bare spots after a year or so but not sure if that's due to user inexperience, normal life expectancy or just not a very good bit.

  •   Still Going Strong

Pros : This is a great grinder. I've had mine for 6 years now and never had any trouble with it. Sometimes I look at newer ones and think that would be fun to try, but I can't justify replacing what's not broke! It gets the job done and has been easy to maintain.
Cons : not a one.

  •   Great lil grinder!
By on
Pros : This baby is quiet, clean & versatile! I love the fact that I can switch 3/4" to 1/4" & 1/"8 bits with ease. It provides all that is expected from a grinder & more. Clean-up is easy.
Cons : The accessory drawer sticks a bit, but a little silicone lube does wonders!
Other Thoughts : This unit replaced a 30+y/o Glastar which I inherited years ago. It finally developed a leak, after years of moderate use. So I went with the same brand.

Part 2 of a 2 part series on the basics of glass fusing. In this weeks article Donna gives advice on indispensable tools for beginner glass fusers. In the beginning, I used one larger tool, and that was a Super Star Grinder. It is still running, running, running. Others have come, and some have gone, but this one is still here. For smaller cold working projects, diamond hand pads do a nice job. The next cutting tool that I bought was a saw. My Taurus 3 Ring Saw has worked extremely well for me, and I love what I can do with it that I couldnt do before, but I worked for 2 years before I purchased this nifty item. As for cutters and breakers, I have many, but for me, the Silberschnitt breaker pliers are a must for small (1/4) strip breaking.....saves so much glass. I use both

As a crafty person, the holiday time can be rough. Not only are we lugging around 7.4 million pounds of product to various craft shows, we also have the expectation upon us that we will hand make everyones holiday gift...because, were crafty like that (plus, you and I both know that it would KILL us to buy gifts that we could otherwise make - its in our DNA). So, at the end of the day - our backs and feet are killing us, wed rather die than smile or make small talk with one more person, we have a car full of stuff to unload (which we also both know will stay there for another 3 weeks until we cant stand it much longer)...and I have to MAKE a present for your sisters husbands aunts niece who is in college? Oy. Enter the scrap glass suncatcher slash holiday ornament. This
