  •   Easy on arthritic hands

Pros : Easier to make cuts compared to other nippers.
Cons : After about 20 nips I have to stop and use the provided Allen wrench to tighten the screws. They get wobbly very quickly

  •   Not what I hoped
By on
Pros : These are fabulous for 1 or 2 mm precision nibbles and will save many trips to the grinder. These nippers are beautifully well constructed, lightweight and easy to hold.
Cons : They will not snip more than a thin sliver at a time. They will not nip thin glass or mirror. The way I hold my glass to nip, they catch and pinch my skin. Expensive.
Other Thoughts : I would give them 5 stars if my intention was to purchase a "supplemental" tool for making tiny shaping nips. BUT, I needed to replace my dull old wheel nippers and these won't cut a half inch or even quarter inch at a time. They will not nip thin glass either. It was a big investment for a very limited use item. I still need to buy another pair of nippers for regular snipping strips into mosaic squares as these won't do that job at all. Big dissapointment because they are a quality tool, just for a different application.

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.
