“Because one brand of lead came didn’t have consistent quality and another brand was not consistently available I switched to lead Heaps, Arnold and Heaps. The quality is excellent and the dimensions exact, moreover it is always easily available at a very competitive price!”
Coen de Koning, De Goudse Glazenier

Small quantities lead came on a drum

Suitable for soft profile to approximately 7 kg. the wooden drum is 23 cm (9 in) diameter and 13 cm (5.2 in) high and easy to store. When you unwind the lead came from the roll, do it as gently as possible and you’ll need to stretch it out before use. Stretch just enough to make it straight. The drum is easier to transport than the long boxes – it can even be sent via the post. Please understand that this is a special order item. Each drum is rolled with lead profile to your specifications – so you’ll need to allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. Price/kg.

Putty brush
This ready-to-use round natural fiber brush makes it easy to force the stained glass putty under the lead came. 10 cm (4 in) diameter brush, handle is 15.5 cm (6 in) long.

Cleaning cloth
Use the cleaning cloth: use to clean stained glass panels from stearine oil and putty residues. Appropriate for both water-based putty and traditional putty. THIS IS THE CLOTH THAT REALLY WORKS. No dust is created, thus healthier for the worker. Once you’ve tried this cloth you won’t want to use anything else.
Do not store used cloth in a closed container – some solvents remain in the cloth and must be able to ventilate. The cloth comes on a sturdy ready-to-hang roll. Each roll has roughly 100 meters of cloth.
