Re: Website

pat, while you don't "have to have" any specific thing, as one of the other responders mentioned, good navigation is a must. you might want to outline on paper the main pages and any sub-pages under them - then tweak it until you're happy. once you have the organization laid out - which wi...

Re: Tile saws for cutting glass

the hot dog blade will give you alot of chipping on the bottom edge. it's fine for cutting up kiln shelves but for glass you need a finer blade that gives a better cut.

Re: Tile saws for cutting glass

haley, the hot dog blades are really not the best for glass. the 303 professional or the 215gl are much better. the 215gl will be the slower of the 2 blades. there is the issue of chipping and chewing out the under corner at the end of a cut, the 2 blades i use minimize that. kinglsy north lapidary ...

Re: Tile saws for cutting glass

do NOT use the hot dog blade! i use an mk diamond 303 professional or 215gl blade - mostly the 303 professional as it is faster than the 215gl and a slightly thinner kerf - .032 i get them from kingsley north lapidary supplies

Re: Buying Taurus 3 - which extra blades should I get?

for cutting multiple layers i recommend the speed blade, time effective, last the longest of the blades for the t3 and cuts thicker pieces well. i only use the standard blade for cutting a single thickness of glass - 3mm or 2 mm.
