Pros : Cheaper because its rolled and bagged.
Cons : None, that I know of. Like I say , I am new to this, so really I don't have anything to compare it to yet.
Other Thoughts : I'm very new to Stained glass work, especially to lead came. I really couldn't tell size by looking at pic on website. I bought this to get an idea of what it was like. Really not at all what I was expecting, or hoping. Need something with a deeper channel. I believe I could do some excellent work with the right came.

Pros : I am just learning how to work with lead came and I found this product easy to learn with. I was able to stretch it without too much difficulty and because it is small, it was more forgiving with my mistakes.
Cons : I ordered 10 pieces and they all came rolled together in 1 bag. Removing one piece turned into a tangled mess.

Pros : This product worked great for my smaller sun catchers and 3-D stained glass projects. I loved the fact that it was bagged, making it easy to store.
Cons : I think the usual caution, when working with lead, should be adhered, since I did notice some residue on my fingers after wrapping my piece.

I love my glass grinder. In fact, I have a couple of them. But I dont grind every piece of glass that I cut. For me, its not necessary. If you can cut accurately, and by accurately I mean no bigger or smaller than your pattern, you may be able to cut down on your projects time by trying out a tool that Ive come to love and rely upon, my grinding stone. A grinding stone, or abrasive stone harks to an earlier day in the history of glass cutting, but still has its value when used in conjunction with good solid, glass scoring and breaking technique. In the pre-grinder days, these stones were de rigueur for the well equipped glazier and to put it simply, they got the job done. Learning to use the stone will take about thirty seconds of training; implementing it can save you hours.
