ROUND H 5.2MM LEAD CAME Metals > Lead Came
ROUND H 5.2MM LEAD CAME

Round H-Channel is used to lead around pieces of glass. The face width of the lead you choose becomes the 'drawn line' within your design, so either heavier or more delicate to create your desired result. Lead came is an alloy whose major ingredient is virtually 100% pure lead with minor amounts of tin, antimony, and copper that gives it high strength. It also minimizes oxidation, making it easier to solder.

HORSE SHOE NAILS - PACKET OF 20 Tools > Miscellaneous
HORSE SHOE NAILS - PACKET OF 20

Because of their flat sides these nails are used during leading to prevent shelling of the glass pieces. A good idea is to use small lengths of scrap lead between the glass and the nail, this allows you to lay your next came over it's final position in order to cut the lead accurately to length.
