Re: 40 degree gable roof

Id move the wall plate to the internal part of the wall and double it up if needed . I would also take one of the old rafters out and use that as a pattern .

Re: Raised panels

I cut the raised part out with the table saw to the depth I want it and then do it by hand with one of those plane things . If the table saw will do it I will rough out the fielded part with that but I normally just do it by hand if its just the one .

Re: Stick on glazing beads and bars

I think I will need something on the internal beads as they are quite small and may bow away from the glass once the central heating gets turned on . Or did you mean use 20 mm pins to pin the bead to the glass :D
Maybe just a dab of glue rather than a tape though ?

A while ago I removed the springs from my router but now want to put them back in . Do the pins that hold the springs in place go in so the springs are touching the base plate or do the springs go further down so the pin is holding the spring at the bottom ?
