The first job was to mask myself up and remove the last traces of paint from the stripped window frame components using an orbital sander.
Next I started filling in the holes in the stiles left by the removal of the coil springs.
I am gluing in blocks of jarrah wood followed by bog.
In addition to the glue I am securing the wooden blocks using some bugle screws but these need to be carefully prepared by drilling the correct profile through the well aged timber.
I realised that I did not have a sufficiently long 6mm drill bit. Also I needed some device to engrave identifying marks on to the sashes prior to their stripping. Additionally - some way to use my small router to remove the glazing putty from the difficult sashes.
I decided to head down to Toolmart in Midland.
They were very helpful on all counts and explained to me how to create a template to simplify the glazing putty removal.
After some other shopping, quite a few hours had elapsed.
I continued on with bogging, cutting components down to length, and resizing some of the components using the joiner / thicknesser.
We had a social (birthday) outing in the middle of the day but I managed to make progress with the bogging and marking up the slot positions on the sill plate.
