Stained glass projects rely on quality chemicals to produce the best results possible. Cutting oil starts off the project by lubricating the stained glass cutting wheel, ensuring a smooth and precise score. Enhanced grinding of these stained glass pieces can be achieved by adding a coolant to the grinder’s water to extend the life of the bit’s diamonds.
Don’t forget the importance of a good flux when soldering your stained glass project.
