This is my second order of these decals. I used them on fused glass coasters & was very happy with the results. The coasters quickly sold at a present & I received orders for 2 more sets. The gift - they were shipped & arrived quickly.
I've used the product a few times and enjoyed the process and results but just noticed that the inside of the kiln is cracking down the top and sides. I assume that if I continue to use it it could cause serious hurt to me or my property. I would like you to suggest a fix for this issue?
Don't buy. Cracked after just a few uses, very inconsistent heat. Buying this was just a waste of time and very discouraging.
This kiln is very little for an additional huge it can only keep 1 to 2 little pieces. Not what I was expecting.
I ordered an EXTRA LARGE kiln , I thought! It said additional huge in the add , BUT it isn't! Its the SMALL kiln! Very disappointed!
I love this kiln for doing little pendants. Recently I began taking little 1/4” pieces placed on a scrap of kiln blanket shaped to keep pieces. I layer transparent stained glass scraps then scrap clear dichroic pieces. Fuse. Then put clear glass on top and fuse again. Interesting results. Dichroic glass works great.
The Millefiori glass included with the kit I received is defective. When it is used in a creation, it causes the finished piece to crack and break. I've used it on three pieces so far, two of them have broken in half just from normal handling, the third one has visible cracks so I am sure it will break ide from that, this microwave kiln makes it fun and simple to create your own fused glass necklace but not quite as simple as it sounds from the listing. Here are a couple of extra things you need to know before starting:1) The listing says "Fuse glass in your home normal microwave oven". It does not mention that it is NOT RECOMMENDED that you use this (or any) kiln in your daily microwave. It is highly recommended that you have a second 1100 watt microwave due to fumes, etc.2) The directions say begin at 6 minutes. If you are using an 1100 watt microwave like they recommend, this may be method too long. Begin lower and work your method up. You can always re-fire a piece, you cannot un-fire it. I have found that 4 mins is a amazing time if I wish to retain some of the different shapes or 5 mins if I wish it all melted together. The shorter time is especially necessary if you are using dichroic glass, it will lose all of its color if it is heated too long.3) The colors of the provided glasses may change when fired. The light green I received turned bright yellow when fired. The one I thought was orange was actually a dark red. Be aware of this and plan your pieces accordingly.Overall this isn't a poor kit for a beginner but the useless Millefiori glass and the lack of information, especially about a dedicated microwave, prevent me from giving it more than 3 stars.
Love this little kiln. Prefect for little pieces but I am using it to try glass compatibility as well as color try tiles. Simple and quick And inexpensive method to go. I don’t have to turn on my bigger kilns for little jobs. Also like making little rounds for flower centers
I found this project to be very relaxing and fun to create my own jewelry or designs. I’ve actually turned my first creation into a magnet to hand on the fridge. I liked how it came with every tool I required to do this including Gloves and file , kiln and glass. Only thing I required was a microwave. It only took 7.5 mins to complete on jewelry piece. I’m excited to hold doing it any trying to designs.
I'm not a professional glass cutter, I'm an engineer by trade who has been remodeling a 120 year old house for the past 15 years, and has had to chop the occasional piece of glass as we refinish the single pane windows. For almost the whole time, I've used an old, red, steel-wheel glass cutter, with mediocre results. So, after seeing the beefier, self-oiling glass cutters on YouTube, I thought I'd give this one a e pack of two glass cutters arrived, and yes they were beefy. The description says they have plastic handles, but that's a lie. They're all brass, a pleasant surprise. The heads are mounted with a spring assembly, acting like maybe the oiling mechanism is triggered when you push down. That turned out to be a lie too, but more on that later. What I didn't care for was the fact that the heads were free to rotate a bit; not something I thought I wanted while trying to pull a straight line, so I took the whole thing apart to see what the deal was. It's a hollow handle, feeding into a hollow hint that attaches to the hollow head. There's a bit of fuzz in the hint to stop the oil from just pouring out the end, but that's it. It's a constant feed, the spring action doesn't trigger anything. So I place it back together, completely compressed the spring, and tightened the set screw all the method down so that the head is tight versus the handle. I poured some 3 in 1 oil in the back end and screwed the ball back on. After messing with it a bit more, I figured out that you have to back the ball off just a bit to obtain the oil to flow. Then I got out some scrap I said before, I've done most of my cutting with an old, steel-wheel cutter. I had to press really hard to obtain it to score the glass. Then when I snapped the glass, half the time the crack would wander, and I'd end up with a piece I couldn't use. I sweated, swore and prayed over those cuts, only to be frustrated again and t with this e first chop I made, I held it like a pencil with light-to-medium pressure and scored a excellent line. The glass halves literally fell apart. I laughed. Every chop I created was a joy. I was making straight cuts, wavy cuts, short cuts, long cuts. The carbide wheel did it all. Then I tried my nemesis; a 3/8 strip chop off the end of a pane. It snapped off like a Kit-Kat bar. Beautiful. I was like a freaking glass-cutting artist!I've never used a $30 glass-cutter, but I can't imagine it could be much better than this. I'm not totally sold on the self-oiling feature, it might be less problem to just dip it in oil before each cut, but the ease with which the cutter actually cuts glass cannot be overstated and overwhelms any of the other small shortcomings I've mentioned.
Now THAT's a glass cutter! I ordered the two package to have one to share with my daughter...she cuts a small glass now & then, also. I was impressed with the weight and girth of these tools...very hefty and seemingly well built. Not sure why I was under the impression the body's were plastic...they are not. I've chop a lot of glass with no oil and until recently, never even knew oil was involved at all. lol I can only guess the oil's basic function is to hold the cutter's 'axel' lubed? Regardless, I s'pose it's handy to have it 'on board'. I was happy to figure out, as there were zero instructions, the little phillips screw adjusts the spring tension for the compression of the oiler. I haven't backed it all the method out to figure out what else it does. Also figured out 5 & 12mm designates the lengths of the two cutting angles. (It's been a learning curve with these new-fangled glass cutters!) Otherwise, so far so good. These tools feel (and look) amazing cutting glass...a point or two for aesthetics! I'm well happy with my purchase.
I regrate I did not ready 3-star and 1-star reviews. This tool does not work for me. I ended up break my glass. The lesson is don't use this to chop thick glass. And I personally am not sure about its result on thin glass.Edit:I tried again to chop thin glass bought from home depot (3/8 inches, 36 x 24). it works this time! changed to 5 stars.
These glass cutters worked perfectly. I heeded the tip of other reviewers who said the oil leaked, so I just dipped the hint of the cutters in a little cup of oil, rather than filling the reservoirs. I chop a huge 1/4” thick mirror into several smaller mirrors and all of the cuts came out clean and straight. The cutters are a nice, massive weight, and the head could be tightened so it did not move quite as much for the straight cuts. They even look really nice. I can’t think of anything negative to say about these cutters.
I starting a stained glass class and ordered these glass cutters. They are okay but really don't work amazing on really thick glass. I required to obtain a more expensive one that did but these are fine for thinner glass if that is what you would be using them for.
These worked excellent for what I required them for & was surprised by the weight of these. Definitely recommend and can see how they are military grade. The head is simple to take off & replace and rotates 360 degrees with ease.
The cutter is heavy, and fairly sturdy, but it certainly doesn't self oil. Another reviewer mentioned some fuzz that regulates the flow of oil, but mine were fuzz free, so any oil poured in the barrel instantly runs out the other end. That being said, I did use it to chop a 1/4 mirror, which it did flawlessly.
Bought these for a one-time project so I haven't used them thoroughly, but for the job I did use them they worked flawlessly and the glass snapped cleanly & easily. Be sure to only create one pass during the chop instead of re-scoring them over & over (I learned that from a video).
I used this cutter on thin glass to go over a picture. It chop very clean and very easy. I hardly had to use any pressure when snapping the break, which is the part that usually makes me nervous. I would buy these again.
Coming from someone who has never chop glass before, or used any type of product like this before. I would say it was very simple. I [email protected]#$%! came with any kind of instructions. However, I watched a youtube video on using one of these before I bought it. So it did exactly what I expected to do and worked great!! I used this to chop a Jack Daniel's bottle!
One of the very best books on Glass Fusing!!! Lots of education, info and ideas on every part of glass fusing along with a touch of humor with authors disasters & successes. Author shares firing schedules & info on how to try your kiln to produce your special pieces. The education this book provides has given me the confidence to obtain back in to creative glass fusing. Book is named appropriately, thank you Wardell's for sharing your knowledge!
Such a unbelievable book with amazing firing schedules. Whether you are a hobbyist or serious glass artist, this is one book you should always hold on your library.I have been doing fused glass for over 20 years and I love Randy Wardell and all of his publications. I think the majority of my books are by him.Wonderful information!
I can't speak to the actual quality of the stuff as I haven't even used them yet. However, if the condition in which they arrived is any indication, I don't have high hopes. I do realize that it is important to oil the metal to prevent rust or corrosion. But the breaking pliers are just filthy as though they are possibly used. Even the plastic they were in is nasty. The other two stuff seem okay and their condition is nothing like the breaking pliers. One star because I can clean them up, but honestly the fact that it's important is unacceptable.
Would give 0 if it were an option. Got this "set" with most of the pieces missing. Not much of a set when there's 1 item in the case.*Edited to add they contacted me to figure out how to create things better. It would take another week to obtain to me, making it too late to be used at school for my son so they issued a refund.
It's a large assortment of enamels! Each is clearly labeled so you can re-order and there is a amazing dozens so you can experiment. They is a nice amount in each envelope. I used them on coe104 and made very interesting effects. It was fun!
The groziers work to pull off small bits of glass in hard to reach locations after scoring. The first set of running pliers did not work, I wrote a negative review. The company read it and contacted me and I sent pictures and they re-engineered them and fixed them and sent me a fresh pair. The fresh ones work perfectly now. Amazing customer service! and willing to go to the additional mile to create it right. Both of these tools work and I am satisfied with them. I chop lots of glass! hydeparkhill dot com
I've been using this same brand of Glass Running Breaking Pliers Grozier for several years. The price on these fresh ones was worth getting a second pair, in addition to the extra hints that come with them. I've never had a issue with this brand, or the plies. Fast shipping with Amazon, too!
The running pliers have ZERO curve to them therefore rendering them useless for their purpose. Extremely disappointed as these were a bonus and are past the return window. Look elsewhere.
Its awesome cutting glass with the right tools and these are definitely the right tools.. Cutting curves is hard... but i got better as time went on... Thank you... if you are a beginner like me..watch some you tubes on cutting glass... very very helpful!!
All amazing tools, I actually even really like the safety glasses even though I was expecting them to be inferior quality. All tools are well made, and I think will latest me my lifetime. If you are questioning the cutter handle, it is solid plastic, not flimsy at all! Absolutely would purchase again.
Amazing quality amazing price , very reliable tools accept I thought the mosaic tool was included but that was my mistake there is a 5 piece kit that contains plus bonus. No worries I’ll just order the other tool. I hope this helps othersThanks Leti
I am fresh to mosaic art, but I am really excited about making it a fresh hobby and making mosaic bonuses for friends. I LOVE this tool kit. The quality of the tools is perfect - and you obtain a lot for your money! I would definitely recommend!!!
I’m a beginner, however it was time to obtain my own tools. I bought these as they were suggested by a mate who has been doing stained glass crafting for awhile. My hands are smaller and my mate has larger hands, so I was wondering if I’d have problems, but they really work great! Love the spring back on the pliers that it offers.
Love my glass hobby. Required tools at home as well as the studio. These seem to work beautiful well so far. I like the breakers a fair amount.
The tools are just what I needed. The running pliers even have spare covers. Delivery was faster than expected, too. I also like the style of safety glasses.
