John,thanks for your continued interest and input at my blog. I agree with you heartily that every reasonable effort to retain original, historic glass should be used. We did so at the seminar, but the glass broke just minutes before we had it fee.

Norm:

I like your window procedure and that you are teaching the good works of window repair and maintenance there in Texas.

>>Try to remove the glass intact. However, breakage of original glass is very
common, even with professionals. <<

We have developed a steam deglazing method that reduced our glass breakage rate from 8-10% down to 2-3%. Learn more here:

Let me know when you do your next workshop and I'll send you some of my handouts to use.
