Now I’ve got a transom, looking for all the light in there I can get my grubby hands on, though a casual look and you might not know it except for the smears on the glass left from puttying the window in. I take more pleasure in the restored window next to it but this new window is intended first and foremost as the transit opening from wood storage direct to workshop, but you would have to be here to really get the relation of the two spaces to each other.
The basic set-up, glass cutting, it works good for me, I measure, I cut, I insert the glass into prepared rabbits, pin it and set the putty. Lot of old glass cutters floating around out there, better to get a new one. This cutter has never given me trouble. Next to that, putty knife the special Friesland regional style. Next to that setting pins of the Swedish style, very handy in use. And in front the special glass-setting hammer, trapezoidal in cross-section for safe hammering on glass.
Old glass, I collect it and hoard it, every chance I get.
