SE Fat Lentil Press

The Fat Lentil Press, launched in 2008 and one of our most popular presses, along with the 13 mm and 15 mm combo and spree press.

the size of the beads made using the press are from large to small: 18 mm, 15 mm and 13 mm and thickness wise are 13 mm, 11 mm and 9 mm.

Its an excellent press to use, not only for simple shaped beads but i sue it to build up my beads when making flowers beads with CZ's encased in the centre, using the javelin to place the divot correctly for the CZ.

This press is now out of stock. If you are interested in purchasing one then please contact me through the website.


As with all the presses they are hand made from brass, come with locating pins and a comfortable wooden handle. Brass does get hot when used so be careful touching this when in use, the locating pins are small and neat and aid the alignment of the press when pressing the molten glass.

Above are images of just a few fat lentils that I have made using the press above.
