Removing putty from windows is almost never a fun task — you run the risk of breaking the window if you push the wrong way, and you can scorch the wood if you try applying heat.  I usually end up just using a putty knife and hoping for the best, but this Prazi Putty Chaser looks like it could take a lot of the work out of the job.

The tool works with a 1/4” or 3/8” drill that can produce 2,000-3,000 RPM. The tool’s carbide cutter will take off that old putty with ease, without leaving splinters in the wood. No need to even remove the window — just keep it in place and do the job.

This made-in-the-USA timesaver’ll run you about $18.

    Once you get the glass out here is another tool to hack out the putty:


    Restoration work can be labor intensive !

    Been there, done that. Works best with a 4000rpm Makita 1/4″ drill. Don’t even bother with a cordless….way too slow and uncontrollable.

    With a houseful of old craked windows to repair, i went thru the hassle of cross-border mail order for this a few years ago. I found it impossible to control, and I’m not without stregth or coordination. My old putty seemed harder than the tool was sharp as well. But it may be better on newer stuff.

    What I eventually stumbled on was warming the old stuff with the heat gun. Came out almost by invitation, it was that easy.

    Bah! Properly applied heat, and a putty knife–easy and fast.

    This STUPID implement deserves top place in WORST TOOL EVER. I have renovated many vintage houses with complex multiple lite sash windows. Old glazing can be harder and more indestructible than modern epoxies. This tool failed because it is near impossible to consistently control the bit and the cut will not remove all of the old glazing. Not to mention that the glass will inevitably break. Heat and a stiff knife blade work better and with less mess.

    I totally aggree with Mister mike. Bigest waste of money I ever had. No control, dang near ruined the window just trying to use it. Good ol heat gun and putty knife is a better choice.
