Not a bad little earner. Pulling an untaxed £735 out of the business. Plus possibly the 20% VAT claimed back.

Re: Wagtails/parting slips

All good points. In an ideal world I'd have got them to remake them. But I had builders itching to continue with the renovation and the delay would have made things very difficult.

Re: Wagtails/parting slips

Yup. Spot on. They removed the short wagtails by removing the parting bead and drilling through the groove at the top where it was sitting. Bit Hit'nMiss but eventually they managed to drill through all the wagtails and they were pulled out via the pockets. The sloppy upper sashes...forgot to mentio...

Because when it fails, after a few months light use, they will refuse to replace it stating that ALL their units with chucks only have a 90 day warranty on the chuck.

Thanks for the comments, guys. Interesting that the company that I contacted for some compare'n'contrast pricing said that they used tulipwood because it was stable !
