Latest New Tool - Circle Cutter

This is my latest tool to play with - it's the Easy Cut Circle Cutter. It will allow me to cut circles in glass to make circular pendants. You can of course make circles through the fusing process, by cutting two squares of glass and layering them on top of each other and fusing. This does create circles, but they are domed. By using the circle cutter, I will be able to create circular shapes that have a flat surface. I have tried it, the first circle wasn't successful, but thereafter I got the hang of it. Will post photo soon of my first attempts.

The glass is also new editions to create new designs. Will post photos when I have fired them.

Great tool. If the glass is transparent (or semi-transparent), you can flip the glass over and place it on a piece of very short pile carpet) press on the "cut line" and you will see the glass "run" as you press. Continue all the way around and your circle will be much smoother when you flip it back over and score your "run off" lines - per the instructions. Let me know if this works.
