I'm a long-time maker of stained glass windows, though never as my profession. Brand new to the forum. When I was taught I learned lead, and I rarely do copper foil.
I have an odd situation: last night as I was applying cement to the first side of a window I'm nearly done with, I noticed a piece that I somehow have cracked. It's about 1 & 1/2 inches wide by about 4 inches long. I need to repair it, and while I've repaired broken glass before I've done it by instinct and trial-and-error. That's worked, but I don't want to risk creating further cracks in this window.
I've spent a fair amount of time on youtube going through the applicable videos and nothing seems quite like my situation. It's a crack, not missing glass. So I'm going to have to use some kind of force to make an empty space where I can then put a small wrench in and start pulling glass out.. I wondered it using a drill and a small bit, drilling several holes, then taking it from there with care would work. Has anyone done that?
I've included a picture of the nasty little bugger. If you've a suggestion, I'm all ears. Thanks in advance!
