I have never done a leaded panel, but am going to start. In a prarie style panel I have been requested to duplicate, the original is done with strictly zinc u and h channels. Is the proceedure the same, minus the cementing?


Answer
Yes, it is the same including the cementing. You need to cement to keep the glass from rattling in the channel and to waterproof the channels.
