I'm in the process of restoring a 1920s beveled glass sidelight that had been repaired (?) previously. I need to replace some of the colonial zinc that had been mauled. It is 3/16 or .186 in width and I need about 4 ft (even if its in pieces). Thanks for any help.

a year ago I had a similar repair project and could not find zinc.....so, found a very similar LEAD profile, used the lead, made everything work out by using existing solder joints as a starting place......and after polishing, could not tell the diff. between zinc and lead......
