Quick-Fit Bit®

SHOCK ABSORBING BIT WITH A QUICK CHANGING GRIT

What people are saying about Techniglass…

“I greatly appreciate your support for my classes at the Glass Craft and Bead Expo in Las Vegas. The students were fascinated with the GelBits and Quick-Fit Bit System, some never having seen bits that change so easily for a variety of grinding tasks. I watched them examine and attach the Quick Bits and stand still for a moment as if the could not believe it could be done so easily. I attached your Gel Bit color chart to the wall in the grinder area, and I am sure the recognizability of the desired bit added to the efficiency of the class.

I tell my students that only the best products in the glass industry are presented in my classes and they can be assured that those products will perform in a way that completes their objectives in the most efficient and effective way.

In preparation for my classes all over the country, Papyros paper is my go-to in the kiln. I find it fabulous for double fires and ease of use. Its consistent performance allows me to concentrate on “Thinking Outside The Box” (one of my signature classes).”
