Stained Glass Tools

In this section you’ll find every tool and material you need to make stained glass.They’re organised by technique when applicable, with separate pages for Copper Foiling Tools and Leaded Stained Glass Tools.
If you’d like to know which tools I use – and why – I have a list of Recommended Tools here. You’ll find reviews and practical information on Glass Cutting Tools, Soldering Irons, Stained Glass Sheets and Grinders.
