Welcome!
That's a new one on me--can see how restoring old/historic windows can be a challenge. We have a 107 yr old bldg. with much of the original windows/glass--& they don't make'em like that anymore.

Hi Dave,

Do you reside in a 107 year old building or is it your place of business? We lived in a house in Mayfield, Kentucky that was so old we couldn't find anybody that knew how old it was. LOL A grade school teacher had lived there and she said she moved into the house in either 1917 or 1918 and that the place was already old back then!!! :eek:
We were doing some really tall windows that looked more like tall doors. They went into the Supreme Court building in Minnesota. A co-worker said they were 130 years old.
