Hello! I am creating to larger pieces, I have never made anything so large before. One will be 26x18 and the other 56x17. Do I need to install reinforcement to these pieces? What do you recommend I use for reinforcement? Thank you for the help!
@ To assemble the glass, you can opt to use zinc H channel came if the design works well with a rigid came (few curved pieces). If your design is more intricate or has more organically shaped pieces, assembly with lead came or copper foil would be suggested. The lead free came that is flexible has a low melting temperature and unfortunately cannot be combined with zinc came or other lead-free solders which require a higher working temperature.
