"Would You Like To Buy The Best Glass Cutter For Less?"

The Onyx 90 Media Cutter

 

My name is Rich, and I have something to share with you.

I was in the picture framing business for twenty-two years. For many years, I struggled with getting and keeping knowledgeable, productive, framing workers. I had one particular problem that apparently, I could not solve.

I remember vividly the pain and disappointment of training a new framer how to cut glass. I could teach him everything else necessary to properly frame pictures, artwork, paintings, and collectible photographs. It didn’t matter what was being framed. However, if it needed glass or acrylic protection, we had problems.

Onyx 90 Cutter

How much glass did we throw away?

How much non-glare glass was ruined?

How much plexiglass was rendered worthless?

Who knows…All I know is that glass cutting was a time-consuming and wasteful part of my business.

Perhaps you have a framing shop, a hardware store, a sign company, a window repair company, or possibly a mirror shop. Perhaps you cut glass on a large table with a straight edge and a hand-held glass cutter. If you do, you know what I am complaining about.

There is an expensive glass cutter, the Fletcher Glass Cutter, on the market that we purchased for each shop location. It didn’t help too much. The workers would complain that it wouldn’t cut glass straight. It took too long to change the cutters from glass to plexiglass, to foam board. The measuring tapes were not easy to see. Worst of all, it took tremendous thumb pressure to apply force to the glass cutters. When cutting plexiglass, you must apply so much thumb pressure, it really hurts.

If you had to make more than three cuts, you had to wait between the cuts for your thumb to come back to life.

I wanted to eradicate this problem once and for all. I decided to search for a new “media cutter” for my shops. (They weren't called media cutters, back when I originally bought my machine...they were called glass cutters.)

I didn’t care what it was going to cost.

I searched and searched. I checked with my friends in the business. I went to the forums and posted questions. I bought books and pdf files about glass cutting and the machines used to cut sheet glass. I talked with different manufacturers…no good. Everybody said I was just going to have to live with it.

He Did IT!

I visited the framing show in Atlanta, GA in 2007 and I came across a booth that was buzzing with activity. Everybody was crowded around this black and silver machine.

At the show, I finally got an opportunity to try the media cutter in action. I had to wait in line!

Even though it was a new machine, it felt like it was broken in. It was smooth, solid and accurate. The feeling was similar to the feeling you get when you are driving your dream car very fast through the mountains, shifting gears and listening to great music.

It was wonderful.

I met Bill. He created what I would call, the perfect media cutter. He named it the Onyx 90. He describes it as the Onyx 90 Wall-mounted media cutter.

Bill was tired of accepting the less than perfect, expensive, slow, and difficult to use media cutter that almost everybody buys. Everybody has to pay over $3000 for a piece of equipment that 'just about' does the job, but not quite.

Bill wanted to take the good attributes of various machines on the market, correct the flaws. He saw and experienced these flaws, but was in the position to do something about them. He thoroughly rethought the whole process and added many grand and some subtle improvements. Being a creator and somewhat of an iconoclast, he designed the Onyx 90.

He never had and therefore, doesn’t have to pay for layers and layers of vice-presidents, endless meetings, group think and “got nothing done today” attitude of large companies. At his company, humans answer the phone...no voice mail. His company is the type of company in which “new ideas” are born.

I was nervous.

Here I was ready to pay almost any price to solve my problem, and in front of me was a machine that was almost half the price of the “standard”. How could it be any good, if it was that inexpensive?

I generally think that if a product costs more, it is probably better than the competition. Bill explained how the product was manufactured with many computer designed and computer-aided manufactured parts. He showed me some of the critical parts that were designed to never wear out, but they had to be manufactured with extremely tight tolerances…a human being couldn’t make the perfect parts that the computer-aided machines can.

I am not a machinist, and I am not qualified to explain the attributes in machinist’s terms. I can tell you that using this machine is similar to the feeling you get when you drive a fine car.

I have discovered the solution, and I offer it to you. I know, just like I did, you will be fighting the impulse to say, “It can’t be that good. If it were that good, it would have to cost more!" If you like to buy the best for a little less, then buy the Onyx 90 Media Cutter.

What Users Have To Say
About The Onyx 90

Dan Williams' Testimonial

Not Happy With Onyx 90, At First, But I Got The Support I Needed

What a delight it was, buying a quality product from a company that takes customer support to heart. After I installed the unit, it didn't work right.

I gave you a call, and you got back to me in one day! That is not what I am used to, by the way. Of course, you knew exactly what I had done wrong. (It was in the installation instructions, that I had not read...sorry.)

In summary, thanks for such a great product. It works better than I had hoped it would...and I saved so much money, too.

Onyx 90 Saves Thumbs

We have used your competitor's old standby glass cutter in our shop for about 10 years. The workers frequently complain to me than it hurts their thumb when they have to cut glass or plexiglass in any volume.

I decided to get the Onyx 90 glass cutter because I knew that it was a much better cutter for much less money! When we first brought in the Onyx 90, people were reluctant to use it.

People get used to whatever they are using, and are reluctant to change. After all, I wanted them to be productive. They didn't feel like they wanted to take the time to get used to a different cutter machine.

A couple of training sessions helped to get most of them to convert to the Onyx 90, but a couple didn't want to change.

When I disabled the old glass cutter by removing some essential parts, I got the whole gang using the Onyx 90. Now, they wouldn't go back to the old machine for love nor money!

P. S. I put the parts back into the original machine so that it works now. It handles the overload now.

The Onyx 90 Media Cutter

Features & Benefits

  • Cuts mat board, foam board, glass, plastic, coroplast, and more. Purchase one versatile machine to handle all your media cutting needs.
  • Cuts PVC foam board, used in the sign industry, much more quickly than the "old fashioned" manual way.
  • Easily cuts a sandwich of media up to 5/8" thick. This makes it easy to downsize that sandwich to fit a particular size.
  • Cuts all commercially available media sizes. Buy boards in larger sizes and save. Cuts 60" in the vertical, and is virtually unlimited in the horizontal dimension.
  • Work in the measurement system in which you are accustomed. Measurements in inches and millimeters
  • Stop ruining mount board, foam board, etc., because they slip and move as you cut them. The built-in media clamp holds the media without any creep. By the way, the media clamp is not used when cutting glass.
  • Measure once and cut many copies using the production stop. The production stop is included at no extra charge.
  • You need to change the carbide cutter, but you don't know where you put the refills? Not with the Onyx 90. The supplied turret wheel comes with 6-carbide wheels for glass cutting to make thousands of cuts. When one of the wheels wears out, simply rotate to a new one of the 6 carbide wheels on the turret.
  • Make thousands of plexiglas cuts with the included carbide plastic cutter tool. When the cutter tool gets dull, simply rotate the cutter in the holder for another couple thousand cuts. This saves time and frustration.
  • The razor cutting blades will dull after many cuts. We supply you with 100 razor cutting blades to make the Onyx 90 ready for many, many cutting jobs before you need to order more.
  • Part of the cost of purchasing a machine is getting it shipped to your home or business. If the machine must come by motor freight, plan on spending more than you two to three hundred dollars...depending on your location. The Onyx 90 is FedEx / UPS shippable! It is much less expensive than motor freight. You save about 50% on delivery cost.
  • Machines that are in the field look like new. They are constructed of anodized aluminum and stainless steel for strength, appearance, and long-lasting use.
  • The Onyx 90 is engineered to last a life time. Buy it once and use it for your long career - then sell it when you retire.
  • Part of the creative design is the use of oil impregnated bronze bearings. These bearings will protect the aluminum to steel interfaces from wearing out over the many years of service.
  • When steel comes in contact with concrete or brick, it will corrode and eventually weaken over time. Because we use stainless steel wall mounting brackets, you can be assured that the mount won't corrode and weaken when mounted on a concrete or brick wall.
  • Changing tools is a real time waster. We have the fastest tool changing in the industry, saving time, money, and frustration.
  • Making sliding parts move smoothly is an art . . . especially when you cannot use oil. The UHMWP bushings allows your slide to remain accurate, tight and smooth for a life-time without oil.
  • Even if something should possibly go wrong, you are protected with a 5-year warranty. The company that manufactures the Onyx 90 has been in the business over 35 years.
  • We are proud to say that it is "Made in the USA"
