    I am in my second year of working with glass so relatively new to the art. Recently I have started looking into tools for cold working fused pieces before slumping. At this time I want to “true up” the edges of pieces that are 4″ to 12″ in diameter. Which tool is best for all around glass working, a wet band saw or a 1″ spindle grinder? I have not had an opportunity to try either. Though in preliminary research the belt sanders tend to be more expensive. Which option would be the best all around useful tool?      Thanks, Bob

    I haven’t used either, but I like a lap(idary) grinder for cleaning up the edges of bowls. They are not cheap, however. Wet belt would probably be cheaper.
