    Broke my first window today. Rubbed too hard and hand went straight through. 2 mm thick, old glass. Learnt another lesson. Owner was ok , asked if I was accident prone!

    Might go WFP now as they don't seem to worry about spider **** do they?

    I've not broke a window yet doing wfp but only do domestic dg units now for that same reason,...
    Old glass is way too brittle to be messing about with that now for me.

    Might be a good idea to keep away from old stained glass church windows too :rolleyes:

    You're a braver man than me....some jobs are not worth the hassle if anything should go wrong.
