GLASTAR FOILING MACHINE
GLASTAR FOILING MACHINE
A remarkable time-saver engineered to speed up and simplify copper foiling. Faster than hand foiling, you can apply foil to glass edges in half the time-or less. The Glasfoiler™ accepts 3 sizes of foil: 3/16", 7/32" and 1/4"; and can dispense 2 different sizes at the same time. Made in USA
$39.49  Order #0820
The Glastar Foiler is easy to use. Simply thread the foil through the separator (that automatically pulls the paper backing from your foil) and over the top of the front wheel. Pass the edge of your glass through the guide and roll the edge on the wheel. The foil will be centered on your glass and partially folded over the front and back sides of the glass. Burnish and you are done.

It takes a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, you will find it faster and easier than hand foiling.

GLASTAR HAND FOILERS

The three tools to the left are the three different hand foilers (3/16, 7/32 and 1/4"). The foil crimper is the tool on the far right
GLASTAR HAND FOILERS
These Hand Foilers are the perfect tool for automatically and accurately centering and applying the foil to the edge of a piece of glass. Available in three sizes: 3/16", 7/32" and 1/4". After applying the foil, use the Glastar Foil Crimper to quickly and easily fold the copper foil around the edges of the glass. Designed for 1/8" thick art glass.

NOTE FOR ALL FOILING TOOLS:
Be sure to use the heavier 1.25 or 1.5 mil copper foil when using foiling machines or hand foilers. The thinner 1.0 mil foil will tend to tear.
