  •   Great Start-Up kit
By on
Pros : I ordered this kit about a year ago. It has everything you need to get started making stained glass projects. I have since been accepted into an art gallery and have sold several pieces.
Cons : Not really a con, but I would also recommend purchasing the grid work surface. It's not very expensive, but is very handy.

  •   Good startup set
By on
Pros : Comes with everything you need to get started in stained glass
Cons : soldering iron dosent have a temp regulator, I recommend buying one so you dont melt your iron by leaving it on for too long, everything in the kit is BASIC nothing fancy, after you get into glass making you see how much better quality stuff there is out there and end up buying those items instead.... but... if you are a beginner just wanting to start in stained glass, this is a good start in basic equipment

  •   Stained Glass Kit
By on
Pros : I am new to stained glass, so the kit impressed me.Good selection of glass.
Cons : Only thing I can think of in should have had coolant added for grinder water to lubricate diamond grinder wheel, so they don't wear out as fast!
Other Thoughts : If you don't plan on patina on your first few projects, you need to add silver backed tape to this order. Maybe offer this kit with discount add on options.I would have rated it a 5 star, but surly it should have coolant with grinder.

  •   Good starter kit....
By on
Pros : Very satisfied with the quality of the products. The item I thought would be the least useful has turned out to be the most useful, the grinder cookie. The glass selection was just fine for my first project in over 25 years. All of the tools, better than expected.
Cons : The 1" grinder bit did not hold up well, there is already surface that has been worn away on it. Today I ordered a different brand of bit for it. The grinder it self is just fine except for the water it throws off of the bit. If Power Max would only make the cheap fix & fit this grinder with a removable spray guard on the grid like my old one had, it would rate much, much better.

  •   Excited
By on
Pros : Grinder, soldering iron, tools and glass are awesome! We have made 4 or 5 projects and still have plenty of glass left over. Great shipping experience.
Cons : Wasn't impressed with the Stained Glass Book, the video, or the flux pen. I suggest ordering liquid flux and flux remover when you order this kit.
Other Thoughts : Everything needed to start projects. Just a wonderful purchase. I return at least once a week to purchase additional items.

  •   A good start
By on
Pros : Has what you need to get started. I was a total newbie who didn't have any training or stained glass tools and I managed to create stained glass projects on my own with this kit. The glass that came with it was a good variety and enough to begin with. It shipped super fast too!
Cons : A con would be the flux marker. I found that it really didn't work well at all. I'd recommend purchasing a liquid or paste flux. I'd also recommend a fume trap to protect your health when soldering and consider lead-free solder, especially if you have kids in your work area. Other things I'd suggest: a homosote board to work on, layout blocks to keep your projects square and push pins.
Other Thoughts : Other than that, it's been a lot of fun and I'm addicted!

  •   Premium Start up kit
By on
Pros : This kit is absolutely perfect for the beginner. The patterns and DVD make it easy to jump right in and start creating your own unique stained glass art.
Cons : It is hard to see where the flux has been applied with the pen.
Other Thoughts : I would however recommend the glastar foiling machine in addition.

  •   Glass Start up kits
By on
Pros : The savings for the kits are helpful --- maybe 15-20% overall (I would guess.) The tools are good quality the purchaser wouldn't outgrow them right away.
Cons : The beginning student would probably do much better with a pistol grip rather than pencil grip cutter that is furnished. I think the idea that glassers can teach themselves is a lot of hype. The progression to intermediate wouldn't be very fast, I don't think.
Other Thoughts : There are a lot of other items that make up a beginning level workshop --- chemicals, wire, special pliers, metal cutters for came, came, on and on. Self teaching students should be made aware of this.

  •   Informative and fun
By on
Pros : All the tools needed plus enough glass to practice with i.e. break and create an few little projects. The DVD included seems homemade BUT is still VERY informative and watched intently.
Cons : Wish there was more glass.
Other Thoughts : There is just something about breaking glass.
