Re: Loose Sash Joints

Also John, see here, it is interesting that on my windows you cannot quite see the end of the tenons when looking at the sides of the rails. Instead, you can see it is covered by a very thin piece of wood, or in some cases, that wood had been bored out -- in which case you *can* see the small tenon ...

Re: Loose Sash Joints

See sash photos. The gap seen in the shot of the junction of bottom rail and stile has play when the sash is placed on ground and "rocked" gently side to side. Also, the rusted "nails" do not go all the way through the sash, but have are entered on the exterior side of the sash (...

Loose Sash Joints

After removing the glass from my windows in my home, and realizing that there is considerable joint looseness and "rocking" back and forth -- I've recently taken to removing "pins" embedded in the sash joints so that I can use your dowel/peg insertion method seen here: https://ww...

Re: Sash Glazing & Painting (with Video)

That's right, so you would not want to use Penetrol where moisture is expected to be high and susceptible mildew and fungus. All of this work is a balancing act... John, got it, thanks! What would you recommend for pre-treating -- if anything at all -- areas with expected high moisture like the inf...

Re: Sash Glazing & Painting (with Video)

" Penetrol is an oil-based product made of mineral spirits, linseed oil, alkyd resin and dryers that penetrates deeply into the wood surface." Are we not trying to avoid linseed oil altogether based on your citing of research that linseed may harbor fungus? I've recently seen on a video by...

Re: Painting Frames, Sills and Casing

Hi John, in a thread in Historic Home Works on painting sashes you mentioned the following: "9b. Prime. Do not prime the side edges of the sash that run in the tracks. Prime all surfaces of the entire sash with oil-based alkyd resin primer, except side edges and face margins. Prime the glazing ...

Re: Glazing Points & Point Drivers

Which glazing points do you prefer for windows that are 1x1 lights (mostly large glass panes in the 32"x32" to 48"x48" size, etc.)? I am really most concerned with safety (I want the glass to stay put for years to come) but also would like to use points that are easy to cover wit...

Re: Glazing Points & Point Drivers

Which glazier's points do you prefer for windows that are 1x1 lights with mostly large glass panes in the 32"x 32" to 48"x48" size--those numbers are estimates, in short, these are not small glass panes, although not necessarily over sized windows?
