  •   Could be much better
By on
Pros : Hate to diss someone else's invention, but would return this product if I could. I have used it on and off for a number of weeks and always end up getting totally frustrated with it.
Cons : There is no ruler and the screw that holds the back stop makes it difficult to adjust to a required length. The options for size of glass rings is limited. You cannot cut close to the bottom of the bottle. The bottle can move around too much so that no matter how carefully you try to turn it, the score line often does not meet up. It is also not possible to cut bottles with smaller diameters than a wine bottle. Large bottles are also difficult to work with.
Other Thoughts : All in all, this cutter is a good idea that needs more polishing to make it workable. I have ruined far more bottles than I have successfully scored.

  •   great tool
By on
Pros : it scores any average bottle just fine. It keeps things nice and straight and serves its purpose for the price.
Cons : unscrewing the nut and bolt every time you want to adjust the length is kind of a pain.
Other Thoughts : When it comes to getting a clean cut out of the bottle the instructions show you to use an ice cube! That in my opinion is why people are having trouble getting clean cuts with this thing. Candle, wet paper towel, candle, wet paper towel, slow and steady easy does it. Make sure you have a still flame and listen for crackles in the glass. About 3 is good under the candle for the first rotation and then move to the wet paper towel. Dry it off, cool it down then move it to the candle. Most likely you will get a clean break from the flame. if not move it to the towel again. when using the paper towel just wrap the wet part over your finger and drag it around the crack. Keep repeating and don't let the flame touch the glass.

  •   Fun to do
By on
Pros : Very sturdy construction. Easy gliding for scoring. Rubber on bottom keeps plate from sliding.
Cons : Longer bottles don't fit that great for closer to the neck cuts.

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.
