How to remove sash with bronze track
 
1 Attachment(s)
I need to reglaze my windows this year. How do I remove the sash when it has a bronze track? Would I just reglaze with the sash still installed then?

Why not just go for replacement windows?
No more glazing, sanding, priming, painting, clean the windows from inside the house, and save money on HVAC from then on.

Right now glazing is cheaper and I like the look of wood windows. I don't think my utility bills are that high either so I can't really cost justify new windows.

Most wood window will require the removal of the interior stop to access and remove the sash.

But with that bronze track even if I remove the stop it will still be impossible to remove without ruining the bronze track. Can I buy new bronze somewhere?

Your best bet is to do it with them in place IMO. The track would pretty much get destroyed in removal. It can be replaced, you are also taking the chance of breaking the glass or damaging the sash in removal.
