It's a little tricky to put an exact price on it. There was lots of other bits being done at the same time- repairs, doors etc. Off the top of my head, I wouldn't think they'd be much change from a grand if you were to make it on it's own. Generally I allow 2.5 days a window, perhaps a tad more if it's espag bolt locks. Hth.pollys13":3455pc7m said:" ......

Amazing work and also a very nice window, looks to me like Oak but you said something else but the light changes how it looks.
As a time served experienced joiner how long did it take in toal do you think from start to finish to make it. Those mortar grooves is that a standard thing on frames then? That window I fished out the skip to look at how was put together, it had grooves I thought they were weathering strips, or thats what I thought they were called. The window board was jointed to the frame like the cill was too. I am familiar with the cill, jambs and header all forming one unit.
Ps how much did you flog the window for, if don't want to say, OK
Thankyou Beau, appreciate the complimentBeau":3455pc7m said:Top class work there Coley
So much work and difficult work at that goes into making a good window and that looks like a very, very good window =D>
I think it was a number 7, but a block plane, or a 3,4, 4.5, 5, 6, 7 or an 8 would do the job. You seem determine to chuck money away when you could more than happily use what you havepollys13":sm1njzrr said:Thanks again for posting all this thread, what make, type hinges for did you use for external use? You havn't come back on my PM. That was a No 7 jointer you used on the stile of the sash, is that the preferred plane for that job?
It was years ago. Somewhere between 50 and £100 i thinkpollys13":4eaayt8k said:You seem determine to chuck money away when you could more than happily use what you have ...... No way.... mate I've got a number 4 and a 5 jack.
Regarding fitting I didn't take many pics. It never looks good being on your phone all the time when the customers around. ....... right
What did you pay to have the cutter knife made for the moulding and the rebate cut?
You mentioned showing pics of your new spindle fence but I don't keep mentioning itpollys13":4eaayt8k said:You mentioned showing the jig for cutting the 9 degree cill cut on the tablesaw.

Attention to detail is what I like the most, I have never attempted to make a window in quality like this and I think I will never will because of all the machinery needed.
