« Part 2: Not an out feed table Part 3 of Windows 20 series Part 4: The basic concept for the display cabinet »

I continued with the Silky oak windows over the past few days.
sanded them all and got the surfaces ready

With the initial damaged Window I Saw trimmed off all the edges and then realised later that there was not enough material left to make them look symmetrical, or possibly fit euro hinges so I set about enfilling the remaining window hinges recesses and replacing the material as opposed to sawing it off.

This meant scraping all the paint out/off so I could glue pieces in.

They started to look really good

The next was an experiment to repair the broken one.

I cut a piece of matching material and shaped it to suit.

cleaned up the damaged part as best I could, removed some builders bog and flattened the area.

applied some glue and clamped it up.

The edge trimmed window I added two strips to replace the material I had sawn off previously

How come you didn’t delete this… seeing as how you deleted the other one?

Nice job on the repair… now just repair that duplicate key on your keyboard.

Did you use a ROS or a belt sander… lot of guk removed.

Must have been half asleep when I some how managed to double post this blog, as I do not remember doing it Mike AG alerted me to it so I checked and sure enough twins were born!.

I used my Bosch ROS iand Ryobi 1/2 sheet sander along with my trusty LBD duckling, it took quite a bit of doing,

I used 2×40 g of good quality 150mm Klingspor disks for each frame then 80G Sisa with the 1/2 sheet to get the published finish.

I used a tungsten insert scraper for the hinges recess areas other tidy up spots.

I did it all outside in the yard with a dust mask in case there was any lead based paint involved, plus I have no other choice of locations.

This is the damage repair section

stay tuned for more D&B or interesting posts.

WOT! No 40G abranet????... Philistine! I suppose outside who gives a flying continental about dust extraction… except may annoying neighbors that just keep on complaining…

Is that a bulk roll(s)...? Good move if it is as it cost a shitload individually in comparrison…
FAIW, I use a variety of cheap hole punches to get some degree of dust extraction, though outside and those neighbors come into the equation again… (cheap hole punches so I can toss rather than resharpen…)... if you do a lot of heavy/paint sanding I do recommend a belt sander… doesn’t have to be a Fe$tool…
Did you consider paint stripper? Bit late now but you could repaint the windows and then try it after the paint dries… leave it out in the sun for a year or so to weather and aclimatise.

Is that the one that was stolen and you’re still looking for it?

Well why the hell didn’t you use it… They remove crap better than a ROS… and work even better if you put a 40G belt into it (actually any belt will be better than none… unless you are seeking that elusive buffer affect).

Rob, How old is that sander.
My dad a a few Skill Power Tools when I was growing up.
They don’t make them that solid these days.

Queenslanders... sheet! For Victoria, you need to prefix it with a 9.. and for Queensland 52-2157, that baked beans can and string technology has been replaced (by spaghetti cans.. a new can-of-worms) just recently by Annastacia P..
