Soften and remove paint and putty from old windows without creating dangerous lead vapour and without cracking the glass!
This unique, Swedish-made SpotHeater Putty Lamp is used by Allbäck in their own workshop in Sweden for removing old putty and paint from windows before restoring. It is designed with a special, gold-coated heat tube that emits short-wave infrared heat, which passes through clean glass and will not cause it to crack. This means that it is not necessary to shield the glass when working on old windows - an amazing time saver, not to mention the valuable old glass!
The accessory SpotHeater Support Bar allows you to position the tool and direct the heat at just the right angle to work hands-free.
