    blunderbuss2, was here, on my last post, and had a question, What is that brass thing in the picture, next to that metric pipe wrench?, or something like that! He was talking about this tool, that I had pictured with the Belt Buckles, that I just posted yesterday. This is what I told him:

    So bb2, it's a size adjustable(at least finger length), stained, leaded, or art glass, cutter.
    The cutting wheel is threaded into the brass finger rest(so it can be replaced when dull), that's form fitted for a thumb, and two fingers, the top part screws up, or down, and fits between your fingers, so you get support, and able to put even pressure on the wheel while cutting the glass!
    Now, I've never used it before, but the guy that I bought it from, said it works great, but had quit doing stained/leaded glass work, years ago.

    It definitely is a conversation piece though! :^D

    When I was photographing it for this, I noticed that it was inscribed in cursive, on the finger rest part, "Elegance In Glass", and you can see that on it, in one of the pictures. I'm sure I saw it before, and was told that by the original owner, of the Company, when I bought it from him, but time has past and with it, the memory of that! &:^}

    Thanks for taking a look at this unique glass cutting tool! Only one I've ever seen! B^) There may be more though! All comments, and questions welcome! :^)

      Ain't never sen nut'n lik dis befo. Can see how good it would be for doing leaded glass.

      Yes bb2, seems to fit my hand good, made for a right handed cutter. It might be made from a wax mold, and then cast, and machined, for the correct finger fit. I don't think it's one of a kind(but I haven't seen another), just custom made for each artist/mechanic. :^D
      Thanks for looking closer, and loving it!
      Mary, and bb2 too! much appreciated! :^)
