Chase that Putty

Prazi Putty ChaserOur house is a bastion of old windows and truly decrepit glazing. I knew sooner or later I would need to scrape away whatever remains of the window putty. That time came sooner after I accidentally broke a couple windows. I ordered the Prazi Putty Chaser which I had seen months ago at Duluth Trading. The device has a simple design with a carbide bit at the end. You just set the depth for your window with a simple set screw and then attach it to a power drill that spins 2000-3000 rpm. The device works as advertised and makes short work of old window putty. In fact, it even ate right through the metal glazing points. However, the bit can be tough to control, and you definitely need a fast drill. It did do pretty well with my small projects, but I am not sure I would trust it to major jobs. FYI, the manufacturer’s site doesn’t behave well with Safari or Firefox if you are on a Mac. It suggests you “upgrade” to Explorer or Netscape and freezes navigation:

I bought mine for about $20 at Duluth Trading

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine! For his complete profile, please visit our About page. Really, it's worth it.
