also available from Olympic Color Rods
Standard Jacks: A solid and proven design, Standard Jacks are deigned 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.
  • 8" blade $175.00
  • 9" blade $185.00
  • 10.5" blade $195.00
Round Jacks: Sometimes the Standard Jack blade just doesn't make it. Round Jacks are just the thing when small apertures, detailed work, and minimal cooling are all part of the big picture. Blades that wear out (or become "mysteriously" lodged in the dipstick pipe of your primer gray 1976 Dodge pickup) can be replaced.
  • 8" blade $140.00
  • 9" blade $150.00
Cup Jack: Similar in appearance to a small Standard Jack, but with a slightly 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. Cup Jack $200.00

Registered Goblet Jack: A unique design that's purely a specialty item. Intended solely for those folks who are already deep into the mysteries of goblet craft. Each set gets stamped with a registration number for posterity. Registered Goblet Jack $300.00


Palmer Tools - available from C & R Loo
All of the jack handles are made of 304 stainless steel. They are provided with either stiff a flex or a regular flex. The stainless steel construction gives the tool a lifetime rust free surface and this tough durable material keeps ther spring in the hinge at a constant tension with maximum adjustability. There are four different styles of jack blades available, 3/4. flat, 1/2. flat, 1/4. round, and 5/16. x 5/32. oval. All of the blade styles are available in a 7. or 10. length. The blades are all made of 304 stainless steel with the exception of the ovals which are made of mild steel. The stainless steel construction of these blades makes them strong for their weight and also resistant in addition to the rust free quality of this material. The 3/4. flat blade is the ideal tool for paperweight makers because the thin width allows the maker to maintain a flat surface at the base of the weight minimizing the neeed for grinding. It is also very abrasion resistant so it will outlast other flat blades. The oval blades are the best tool for opening pieces with long tight necks. It has the narrowest profile when closed of all of theses jacks and tapers to a point to allow entry inot the tightest openings.
