Value Pattern Shears For Lead
Value Pattern Shears for lead a special scissors which, when cutting out your templates for leaded stained glass making, remove a thin strip of paper, equal to the amount of gap needed to allow for the heart of the lead.
To use, simply draw out your cartoon, cut along lines with the pattern shears, which remove the 2mm gap required, and use the cut templates, to start cutting your glass. This works particularly well if you are using opaque stained glass!
We also do a pair of shears for copper foil work, which removes a thinner strip, allowing for the gap in foiled projects.
