I've got these on ebay right now, but happy to end the auction if someone here wants them.

These large Cutting-Edge jacks are very gently-used and in excellent condition. I got them from a retiring glassblower (Randy Strong) and since I already have four pair of jacks I won't be needing these. I don't see any metal wear at all. I cleaned them up only a little but left most of the original patina on them rather than removing the burned wax on the end of the blades. These jacks are big--20 1/8" in total length. The blades are 11.5" Great for necking big stuff. If you know glassblowing you know Cutting Edge Tools are top-notch. They are $350 new, so this is an opportunity to get a great deal on some excellent jacks.

I think I might be interested. I'm working to put together a set of tools. I don't know that I *need* large jacks, but don't want to pass up an opportunity. What would you be looking to get out of them?

$275 and they're yours. But I'd only get a set of large jacks if you're making large 4-5 gather work that requires them.

We have a pair. They are monsters but they are really great jacks. They cut a great line in large pieces. Highly recommended if you are looking for a heavy duty pair of jacks.
