Product Information

The Taurus 3 ringsaw we sell is CE marked and complies with EU safety requirements; we don't charge you any more for this than non-CE marked versions that are sold elsewhere as we feel your safety is essential. All saws include a circuit breaker to comply with safety requirements.

This is simply one of the best glass saws on the market, capable of sawing a wide range of materials including glass, marble, stone, brick, tile, plexiglass, gold, silver, bronze, aluminium, stainless steel and porcelain.  Unlike a band saw, each ring blade has a 360 degree cutting surface (with the exception of the slicer blade), which means it can cut in any direction, so there is no need to keep turning the glass to cut curves or corners.  Please see the video below for a demonstration of how this fabulous piece of kit works.  

The Taurus 3 has an integral water cooling system, and a very helpful spot light directly over the cutting blade.  This model comes with a standard ring blade (suitable for cutting Art Glass up to 3mm thick), and we also stock a variety of different blades to suit all your cutting needs. Another great thing about this saw it that it can not only be used as a work surface unit, but it also converts to a hand-held unit, so you can choose whether to bring the glass to the saw, or the saw to the glass.  

All in all, The Taurus 3 is a great addition to any studio. Taurus advise gluing your pattern with clear liquid cement such as Elmer's Rubber Cement then coating the top of the pattern with the same glue. We have found that drawing the pattern onto the glass with a Sharpie Oil Paint Marker works quite well. Alternatively our customers have told us that using a standard Sharpie pen and coating the design with Vaseline works sufficiently. The idea is to try to keep the water from washing away your design as you cut. An example of work using the Taurus 3 ring saw

Features include:

  • 1 Standard Ring Blade (installed)
  • Integrated spot light which surrounds the blade while the saw is on.
  • Removable face shield
  • 1 Instructional DVD as well as a written instruction manual
  • Integral water cooling system
  • 230 V, 50 HZ
  • Worktop: 400 x 300 mm
  • Ring diameter 14.6 cm
  • CE marked

One year warranty on the motor and construction parts. 

There is no warranty on the blades or rotating parts. So keep in mind the “golden rule” to let the saw do the cutting and do not force the material.

Wow! I so wish that I had bought this ages ago. Cuts through the glass with such ease. So easy to put together with full instructions,(even I could follow them). Great service from Warm Glass and delivery within the time period.

I wasn't sure about paying so much for this but I am glad I did. I am fairly new to glass and wanted to be able to cut unusual shapes. The saw is so easy to use, cutting through glass like a knife through butter. I thought that it would be difficult to clean but it is very straightforward. I think the purchase of a narrower blade will be necessary in order to cut really intricate shapes, but the standard blade is adequate. Do watch the video... very informative and amusing.

I wish I had got this sooner. I hesitated because of the initial outlay, but it is worth every penny. Easy to set up and very easy to use. It opens up so many creative opportunities and is invaluable if you struggle with arthritis. Even my husband (whose nickname is 'Gadget Man'!) was impressed.

I hate to follow the crowd, but I have to agree with everyone else, this ring saw is just brilliant.

Set up, with the aid of the easy to follow manual was so simple, I thought I must have missed something and was nervous about turning it on. The DVD is also very good - giving clear instruction and is very entertaining. After just a couple of attempts I managed to cut out an indented Christmas tree, with great results. The blade cuts through glass as if it were butter and the saw is easy to remove after use.

I had to wait a couple of days before I could really use it, as I didn't realise I needed liquid cement to stick a template to the glass. I tried drawing my design on the glass with a Sharpie pen, but the water just washed it away. The only other thing I would say is make sure you push your sleeves up, otherwise they will get very soggy!

Expensive, but worth every penny for the possibilities it opens up. Just wish I'd bought one sooner.

Amazing tool. So easy to use. The blade cuts really effectively and in all directions. Took a few attempts before I got the hang of it but am looking forward to cutting lots more shapes in the future.
