    I currently have a 12 incher and 6 incher, would I be better buying 14 incher and using the 12 incher with an old blade for lead windows?

    I use a 5" (used to be 6), and a 9" mostly but have a 14 for larger windows and an 18" for huge ones. I just prefer the 9" rather than the 14" and don't use a blade on leaded in fact hardly do them now I wfp them.

    Use what works for you mate. Personal preference is the 'norm' for these things

    I use an 18 inch and 12 inch, both in equal measures. Use an old 10 inch for leaded windows. Mind you, sorbo rubber doesnt seem to get knackered by the lead.....it must be quite tough.
