Tools Morton System

The Morton System Makes Stained Glass Safe and Simple

The Morton System is an integrated set of tools used to simplify difficult glass cuts, which allows a beginning hobbyist or professional studio to easily make cuts in glass that are difficult or impossible to accomplish with other tools. The special cutting surface cells trap the glass chips, which will prevent your glass from getting scratched and will provide you the ability to work safely with glass anywhere without the mess. The special breaking system consists of a pressure block with a concave undersurface used with a running button that has a convex upper surface on top of an open grid surface.  This breaking system is safe to work with since glass is not broken by holding the glass in your hands.


Morton Portable Glass Shop

The Portable Glass Shop allows you to make cuts fast and accurate. It cuts triangles, rectangles, diamonds and any other geometric shape easily. Just measure one time, then cut two or a hundred pieces - all identical! A grid work surface is required, but not included. The markings on your current Morton surface are easily modified to work with this New Portable Glass Shop. Video and Manuals are available online to make the learning easy and fun again. New features include a reversible Squaring Fence for regular and thin art glass and fast angles in both metric and inch scales. Includes the new "Cutter Slide" Bar which improves your cutting technique.
The Mini Surface is sold separately.

Teeny Circle System (TCS1)

Replaces the previous Teeny Turn Table and Teeny Circle Guide. The Teeny Circle System is an inexpensive method of making small circles, but is so much more.  Most inexpensive circle cutters have two critical shortcomings... they can't make smaller than 3" circles and they use a much lower quality cutter wheel than your regular glass cutter. The Teeny Circle System is for circles of 6" or smaller. This unique design allows jig setups for much more than circles. With the TCS1 you can make teeny circles using your personal glass cutter.
