So after a week of working decent hours 7-10 hours a day on these sashes finally ones gone back in (almost) I fully rebuilt the box for the bathroom window, the youngest window in the house. This included a new oak Cill new bottom sections to the box faces and the outers and new inner faces to the frame. Then a new meeting rail for the top sash and a new complete bottom sash.
I’m some what glad I learn hand work when I started out as this work has predominantly been done by hand as I’m 200 mile from home and working in my uncles garage.
Now to tweak the weights for the heavier bottom sash and get it fully finished.
Had a painful afternoon when I got a sash weight stuck trying to reinstall them and pulling on it crushed my finger between weight and Cill removing a lot of skin.
Dreaming of a sawmill, feels like a museum. Thanks for looking Adam.
