Indispensable tools for anyone considering stained glass work as a serious hobby.

Running Pliers
Running Pliers

Grozing and Breaking Pliers
Grozing and Breaking Pliers
Glass pliers are constructed so that the jaws are parallel when they are slightly open. This feature allows you to grip the edge of the glass firmly, enabling you to remove strips as narrow as 1/8" from the glass, once your cut has been made. These pliers are also suitable for grozing or nibbling off tiny pieces of glass whether or not a cut has been made.
