@loveofpoms If you wish to make the repairs yourself, you can use your regular stained glass tools. You can find helpful instructions for making the repair in a book such as "Making Stained Glass Lamps" or "Stained Glass Basics".

@skinas1@hotmail.com Zinc, brass and copper came can all be cut using a metal cutting blade on a saw. If you are only making an occasional cut, a small hand saw such as the X-Acto Razor Saw and a miter box are suitable. If you intend to use rigid metal came frequently, you may prefer a power saw that will make precise cuts quickly such as the Power Miter II Chop Saw or Gryphon Came Saw.
