Remember the Dinos for $1800? Those were a deal! You'll have to save a lot more pennies to afford these for $2400. http://r.ebay.com/cNemKQ

They must have been bought for Eben's video of "I don't care, I want to blow glass"

"Almost never used".

What a commitment. Buy it and we'll throw in a 38,000 dollar furnace.

He should have mentioned that they are rare.

Do you think those Dinos are real? I mean would a master metalsmith accidentally double-stamp his name like that? I've never seen or heard of Dino jacks without the proper insignia... then again he died when I was an undergrad.

Not me. I'm down here working at the University of Miami. If I were going to sell counterfeit Dino's, I would have a better stamp made and sell them through someone in Italy. Sending anything counterfeit through the mail or across state lines is a federal thing and I have a good job and wouldn't want to screw it up for an extra 2 grand. I do, however, have a pair of Jordan Jacks laying around that we're willing to part with. You can get your screeeeeeeeaaaatch on with the Jordan's for a low cost of $75.

The provenance listed on EBay of schools and dates are kind of odd/off. Most people who went to both Tyler and MassArt never became well known. Those that went to RISD + Tyler from that era faired better. I'm going to guess that it's a family member of Italo Scanga selling the stuff. He lived in Glenside. Taught at Tyler. He was around early enough to acquire early Dino's and the large RISD made jacks through Dale Chihuly and others and never use them. This would explain their clean and almost unused condition. I think if it were Jon Clark liquidating his collection (I think his stuff is from the UK) he would sell to the presidential appointment instructor Dan C. who would appreciate the tools, their history and the lineage. Dan Dailey grew up in Philadelphia and used to visit Dino and bring back tools for students at MassArt but that would doesn't seem right. Jack Wax went to RISD and Tyler and used to live in the area but I'd think he'd rather mangle the tools in order to prevent someone from making anything aesthetically pleasing in a glass studio.

Those Dino's are the real Deal. These were made before Dino had his oval stamp made.

Not that I'm all that into encouraging this kind of baloney, but Dino did, in fact, mark his tools this way early-on. Who the hell am I? Just another geek that pays attention to this stuff.

I must say, if it is a forgery, they sure went through a lot trouble to get the rust pitting to look so natural.

Sure tore 'em up with a wire brush too.

Greg, its really no big deal at all to get that kind of rust patina, or stamp the logo. And, I can't imagine making the jacks would be that big a deal either…hmmmm…

$30 dollar pumpkins, 'r $2,500 jacks

I have 2 pairs of Dino's. the small jacks are nice but the large ones are flimsy and bend under pressure.

Ivan Smith in my opinion was the best tool maker of the past 30 years. I have a bunch of his tools that he made for me and I say with total honesty that his jacks are without a doubt a better tool than Dino's.

A good pair of Jim Moore jacks look, feel and behave exactly the same as a pair of Dino's jacks.

It's all hype.

I totally agree. Use your Dino jacks on a basically bad commercial glass filled with seeds from anybody. They automatically remove the seeds and cords. American Jacks can't do that. It's the special metal.

Well I have to disagree. I have both and they behave very differently

I do agree with Kenny on that. I found the metal on my Moore's to be a bit softer than the metal on my current cutting edge tools and they do behave differently. I just think that the number of glassworkers where that particular tool actually changes the way they make glass to be a really tiny body of people. I think the glass you choose to work to be far more important.

I've only had the opportunity to crash a Mustang once. Serious doubts about a Lamborghini.
