Re: Timber frames for metal Crittall type casement inserts..

Leveller, Do you have a CAD programe? If so this link will give you .dxf files of the crittall product, but you'll obviously need to know exactly what secction/window style is to be fabricated. Fabco (similar to crittall will be different again etc.) https://www.crittall-windows.co.uk/professionals/...

Re: Festool dust extractor

Just to make you aware, some sites will demand an M Class extractor which will have filter cleaners and an audible blockage warning.

You could also take a look at Starmix who make excellent extractors that are extremely prevalent in Europe.

I'm with Jason here door blank and plant on, you could also look at a pivot hinge with a floor plate, I've done them this big for interior stuff but not exterior, will take some standing around and teeth sucking to get a good seal with pivot hinge, assuming you need/want it when using the pivot.

Low plinth heights if your doing lay on doors will cause you "issues" with the dishwasher door if the door length is over 720mm (ie you have made longer doors to compensate for the shorter plinth)

Re: wardrobe door hinges - cup positions wrong, doors rubbing.

I second what Siafins said, those hinges you have are a pain in the backside, no where near as much adjustment, either go for an inset hinge matched to the gap you need and drilling dimension with a 0mm or 2mm baseplate or if that won't work a standard hinge on 14mm or 19mm base plate.
