    KEF, is your glass horticultural grade or the re-inforced stuff? You may need to get the re-inforced stuff cut professionally. Hopefully someone here will let you know.image

    Think I've mislead folks it's horticultural glass.

    I've the chance of a replacement GH for my rotted wooden one, overgrown with ivy image but structure is sound, lots of broken pains, and need to hire a van. It couldn't be easy could it ? image it's one that is wider at base than top and I thought maybe glass from old one could be cut down to size.

    Still deciding if worth effort to "dig it out" remove all the ivy to skip and pay van hire etc..bit hard to say no as OH  friend's Mum's and she wants rid, but don't want donkey work to find it a wreck..does look promising but a funny size. 7' wide, 7' 6" length, 5' at lowest height.

    As far as I'm aware, horticultural glass is just about the cheapest available.  If, as you say, some panes are broken, it ain't toughened or laminated.   An ordinary steel-wheel glass cutter should do the job.  What Edd sedd.

    Thanks for replies Edd & Steve it must be horticultural glass. Will be having a trip to Wilko.

    Don't know why I said re-inforced, senior moment or daft.
