A solid and proven design, Standard Jacks are designed to ride smoothly on the glass and feel good in your hand. Blades are gusset brazed and can easily be replaced as they wear. One of our most popular tools, and rightly so.

Round Jacks

9" blade

Description:
Sometimes the Standard Jack blade just doesn't make it. Round Jacks are just the thing for doing finish work. Where detail, minimal cooling and tool marks are part of the big picture.

Cup Jack

8" blade

Description:
Similar in appearance to a small Standard Jack, but with a different blade profile. Somewhat more utilitarian than the Goblet Jack, but still a specialized tool intended for people who spend a lot of time shaping cups.

Wire Jack

$110.00   add to cart  view cart

Description:
This jack is forged from one piece of wire like many of jacks used in the 2004 video Middle Eastern Glass by Norman Faulkner. (You can order this video and others by calling 403-269-2697). I liked the idea of making a minimalist jack from one piece of metal that does not take up too much room on the bench. The jack blades are 6-1/2" inches and the over all length is 13-5/8" inches. The strap is 7/16" wide so using the back of the jacks is not really a option.
