Brush taking lead off window


ShropsWindowCleaner

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Over a long period of time some of the lines of lead have come off a customers window, i think it was due to me using the wrong brush for a period of time. Thankfully they have never mentioned it. 
Has anyone else ever experienced this? Did you have to repair it?

 

Thanks in advance.

The trouble is the lead stretches and won't fit back properly.

It’s easy to cut with a Stanley blade ??‍?

If it's faux lead IE self adhesive lead tape then replace it with the same tape.

Do not use super glue or any other form of bodge job in a tube. Cyanoacrylate is a temporary bond adhesive not suited for glass as it frosts with moisture. Step away from the super glue chaps its not intended for the job

I’ve used it on several of my own windows and it’s worked perfectly without a single issue ??‍?

Me too - used it on one of my first ever customers and it’s still stuck, that’s over 6 years ago now ?
