Re: Hardwood windows and door isues

It sounds like they have flat cills or at least the chamfer doesn't go all the way under the opener ?
The condensation can be got rid of by opening the trickle vents or installing some if they dont have any .

Re: Wadkin Vs Wadkin Bursgreen

Re: Sliding sash repairs

Nice repair . I have never understood why this kind of thing isnt taught in schools . when i was at school we made a wood metal and plastic train . What good is that for life ? How to repair a window or door is far more useful .

Re: Elu MOF96 - Type? and Refurbishment

If you're mounting it in a router table then removing the springs is quite common . I have a hand held with no springs , you just need to remember its going to drop rather than pop up when you hit the lock .

The finish is poor . It looks like it has been on site for a while before fitting . Douglas fir is a fantastic material for an external door however it is horrible to work with .

Re: Gothic arch architrave

It was a bit of a mystery why the moulding was going wrong as the dry runs worked perfectly but i did the cutting in two passes and the first pass was taking away enough timber that the second pass was missing the top part of the jig so moving a little as it went around . Adding another bit of mdf t...

Re: Timber pricing/size - rule of thumb?

The more you buy the cheaper it is but prices can go all over the place as its a natural material with sales people trying to earn money on it . Then you have the problem of what stock is available . You may want a 4 x 2 but you have to buy a 6 x 2 as that is what they have . So you keep the off cut...

To be honest mate those old universal machines are crap at nearly every function and lethal . Scott and Sargeant may give you £100 or you may find a hobby woodworker on UK Workshop that will buy it . Dont expect to get a lot for it though .
