Replacing a window pane.
#9
Bug    
Garage to patio door. Bottom of three panes. Pry off the trim(door is original to house---1965), get replacement(Ace Hardware Big Grin ), reinstall with Porter Cable 18 gauge nailer). Three weeks ago. Bought a tub of glazing compound on a whim.

Today, I notice the pane is loose in the door, held in by only the bottom trim piece. The other three are missing. Find one, and discovered the nailer had a stuck nail---never did nail any of the trim. Raised Raised The nailer has been sitting for 6-8 months unused. Raised Raised

Now two pieces of trim are in the wind. Nowhere to be found.

Aha! The glazing compound! And a putty knife! Tried to remember the last time I did that job---could not remember. No glazing points. Darn. Oh, well, just one side and the top. Big Grin

Hmmm. Maybe a critter (dog?) carried the trim off....

Did you remember to apply linseed oil to the frame beforehand?

If I had a signature, this wouldn't be it.

You might find the trim next to your eyeglasses <grin>
I make sure I wear my "cheaters" to make sure a pneumatic finish nail was actually set, as the little ding in the wood can be/has been misleading...

40 years ago, I spent most of a summer re-glazing & painting windows of a church.  I was laid off from my construction job and needed something to do.  I forget how many gallons of glazing compound I went through.  The guy who had done the work the last time set me up with the job. He told me about using linseed oil to condition the window frame and help the compound stick.  Also mixed a little in the glazing compound from time to time, to soften it up a bit and make it easier to work.

I don't think I ever had to use my finely honed glazing skills again after that job.   Laugh
