Protect your work surface and tools with this essential tempered glass cutting surface. The Sailrite® Tempered Cutting Glass is ideal for upholsterers and canvasworkers using a hotknife, as well as for leatherworkers skiving leather. Convenient grid lines every inch with 1/4-inch markings make it easy to line up your material for making perfectly straight cuts. The glass plate is 30 x 11 inches and 1/4 inch thick, providing a large glass surface to make long, precise cuts.
For Canvas & Upholstery
This cutting glass pairs perfectly with the Sailrite® Edge Hotknife or any other hotknife. Protect your worktable when cutting synthetic materials with a hotknife without damaging the table underneath. The glass allows the blade of the hotknife to slide smoothly, resulting in a clean cut that minimizes scorched edges.
Tempered glass has no porosity, which makes it the best surface to skive and edge bevel on. It won’t dull knives, skivers or bevelers as quickly as cutting mats or granite slabs. This cutting glass will keep your leather tools sharper for longer.
Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that is manufactured to be physically and thermally stronger than normal glass. If the glass were to break, it would crumble into small chunks instead of splintering into jagged, dangerous shards as normal glass does. This feature makes it safer to use and keep in your work area than normal plate glass.
Note: This is the Sailrite Tempered Cutting Glass only. The Sailrite Edge Hotknife is sold separately. Sailrite leather tools are also sold separately.
