Beetle Bits System


Beetle Bits Cutting System Beetle Bits Glass Cutting System

Aides in scoring angles and straight edges to create basic shapes or strips

This product was designed with the same principles as the Cutter’s Mate: simplicity, comfort and ease in scoring. The big difference with the Beetle Bits is that you get the added benefit of accurate measurement in your angles and length of cuts.  You are able to make the exact same measured cut over and over with ease!  The compass dial and rests, resembling beetles, provide ease of cutting from either side of the work surface, or a straight cut perpendicular from the base ruler.  This product is designed to be used with your own cutter and grids.  For even more simplicity, add the Flying Beetle Cutter or save money with one of our many Beetle Bits Bundles.

 Waffle Grid

The most versatile work surface!
Introducing The Waffle Grid, an interconnecting grid which allows the user to configure the shape of their work table.  Through its unique design, you can configure around a corner, as a connecting backsplash or even randomly turn up individual grids to have a smooth area amid a pocketed area.  You can even see through it for angle patterns.

Made of high impact Lexan, the surface of the 1/2-inch pockets is rounded smooth to allow your glass to glide.  Want to clean out debris from a section?  Just lift it out... no need to disturb your work surface!

The Waffle Grid comes packaged in a 6-Pack of 11.25" x 11.25" grid sections.  Modular design allows you to have one small surface of 11 inches by 11 inches square or a large surface of unlimited size by interconnecting many grids.

Features:

  • Dimension does not get lost when adding grids.

  • The tops of each of the squares are rounded smooth so glass glides easy.

  • Allows the configuration to go around a corner such as an L-shaped counter or to design a backsplash.

  • Material is of impact resistant polycarbonate plastic. (Lexan)

  • See through material allows the use of a template to be placed underneath such as a angle guide. Also excellent light transmission for a lightbox.

  • Grids interconnect in such a way that you can flip one or more over in set-up so you could have smooth area amid pocketed areas.  This would give you an area to score small pieces.

  • When emptying out the grids, you only have to pick up one section which you can conveniently empty into a small wastebasket without disturbing the rest of your gridded work area.

  • If you wish to store your grids, simply stack them and place in a drawer.
