From Creator's Stained Glass this is a very well built tool. As the manufacturer says, its all you need to cut glass! This is an amazing cutter that almost scores glass by itself. You just steer it over the sheet.
The Cutters Mate has a foam cushioned, weighted handle that eliminates the strain of grasping a traditional slim cutter. It is perfect for stained glass artists that suffer from arthritis or similar complaints, providing a pain free, comfortable means to cut glass.
The Handle rotates 360º and since it is weighted, applies all the pressure you’ll need to effortlessly produce a perfect score. You can even score glass while sitting down!
The easy-glide system keeps the cutter head at a constant 90º angle to the glass, practically eliminating bad breaks. The Cutter’s Mate can be positioned for right or left handed use. The 16" cutter arm can score a straight line up to 42" long. The arm swings out of the way when not in use.

Effortless, precise cuttingBy Barry Hoare
I thought I would have to give up glass work due to vertebrae deterioration in my neck. But having purchased this cutter, I can now continue because this cutter is absolutely effortless. Expensive, yes but I can continue to enjoy and to earn a living from fused glass work.
