Product Description

Give your stained glass creations the reinforcement to last for centuries with this easy to install external reinforcement. Sturdy zinc rebar will add strength and stability to your lead and copper foil creations. Cuts easily with the hand held X-Acto Razor Saw #5050, or a power came saw such as the Power Miter II™ Chop Saw #7990.

Zinc rebar should be used to reinforce panels measuring more than 24" in any direction. For panels 2' - 3' long one piece of rebar can be used in the middle of the longest side of your panel. Rebar should extend onto zinc frame to the outer edge and be soldered to that and each solder seam that it connects with. For larger panels additional equally spaced supports should be added.

  •   Reinforcing and Framing
By on
Pros : Strong, stiff, sturdy, yet easily cut with a dremmel. Keeps lines perfectly straight -- especially as compared to other reinforcement products at Delphi -- because of its relative thickness.
Cons : Doesn't "take" the solder as easily as copper-coated or pre-tinned surfaces. I was able to work with it by applying a clean hot iron until the rod was HOT before applying solder.
Other Thoughts : Since weight was a mostly-useless number for my purposes, I waited for a discount coupon, and blindly bought a box. So that nobody ever has to again: My package consisted of 32 pieces of 6' (72") lengths of 1/8"×5/16" flat metal rods. The box was secured to a complementary length of wood (a standard lumberyard 2-by-4), presumably to keep the metal from bending. B-)
