Routing window glazing
« on: May 28, 2019, 09:22 PM »
I have about 40 storm windows to inspect and reglaze as needed.  Confronted with the traditional methods of removing putty glaze, I decided to try and use two 1x4 as a sled for my 1400 with a 1/2” top bearing pattern bit.  I set the bit about 3/32” above the glass and one edge of one of the boards slightly proud of the stiles, rails and mutton’s.

The method worked really well on the test light!  I did set the speed to 1.  I did not hit any glazing points, but I imagine I will need to be very conscious of them. The router left about 1/16” glazing on the glass and the wood.  I wasn’t really concerned about the residue on the wood and the residue on the glass popped right off with little effort.

I did search here, world wide waste and you tube. I only found a few references to trying this. I think it works great.

Have you considered steam?

I’m going to carry on with this method until/if I start breaking more than an acceptable number of lights. If that happens, then I will seek out other methods.
