Stained Glass Grinder Unboxing – Glastar Super Star II

Stained Glass Grinder Unboxing – Glastar Super Star II

​Choosing a stained glass grinder can be a little intimidating, especially when you're new to the craft and don't know a whole lot about them.  In the following video I show you everything that ​came with my ​most recent Glastar Super Star II Grinder. 

​Since starting with stained glass myself, I've always had one of these machines and absolutely love it. It's very solid and can handle t​he constant stress of being used in a teaching studio.

So now that you've seen ​the accessories that came in the box, you ​should have a better idea of the value in these machines. As mentioned in the video, more videos are in the works. How to use the mini table and how to use the retainers to hold the sponges. And also, how to use the straight edge guide?

The Glastar Super Star II has an 8 x 9 inch work surface while it's big brother, the Glastar All Star G8 ​offers an 11 x 13" work surface.

These machines are a bit of an investment. Just know that you will not have to worry about whether or not the motor can keep up with you. Having been used heavily in my studio constantly by myself and students, my previous machine lasted just under 13 years.

If you're interested in taking a closer look at either of these machines, ​please check out the links below. (Please note that the following product links are affiliate-connected​. This means that ​a small p​ortion of the sale may come to me, which in turn, helps support the blog​.​)

​I'm curious to know how many of you already use a Glastar grinder? Let me know in the comments below what your preferred stained glass grinder is.
