Default Questions about gauges

I am curious about how the gauge roller is used and if anyone uses soft glass for gauges? I have alot of friends that have gauged ears and really want to make a few. Are there any tutorials available ?

Are you talking about a beadroller? If so you might find some helpful info on cgbeads.com.

The rollers probably are much easier, but I did find this video of someone doing them freehand. I have no personal knowledge either way.

There is a guage beadroller on the cg site but no info on that specific roller. Thank you for the video.

In general, when using a roller you roll the glass against the edge closest to you, not in the bottom. I hope that makes sense.

That makes sense and might make it easier to use my round roller.
