Manufacturer of Quality Tools


Paddles

These hand held paddles are used to shape molten glass. The extra long handles are rubber coated for comfort. Remember, do not put this or any tool directly into the flame, work and shape your glass out of the flame. Watch Out - Some other suppliers out there on the internet are selling paddles that are grainy material, not sanded and weak handles. Ours are fine sanded on the good fine grain material with strong handles.
Made in the USA by Sundance

Shaping Paddles
These hand held paddles are used to shape molten glass. Extra long handles are rubber coated for comfort and have shaped edges to better shape your molten glass. Available in graphite or brass. Graphite is the preferred because it is lighter and can be re-sanded. Where the brass is a more durable material and it is easier to keep the chiseled edge intact. Remember, do not put this or any tool directly into the flame, work and shape your glass out of the flame.

The Wedgie - The forward edge is tapered to a sharp chiseled point. This allows you to cut into the molten glass to make a groove. A typical use for this is to make a melon shaped bead.

The Basic Shaper - Chiseled edge plus one side edge is rounded for additional shaping.
Available in graphite or brass.

Super Shaper - Sometimes called the Stump Shaper. Similar to the Basic Shaper but with additional ground shapes. Available in graphite or brass.
