John, do you have any idea what thickness the glazing needs to be?

Would something like this 1/32" glass setting tape work?

Nice clean job, John. Did you use screws on the top row like many have?

I know whose's going to be Tap's best friend. He'll probably follow John around all weekend.

Cheers

No Peter I used Olympics but screws might have been the better choice, I will see how the rivets work out. The holes were drilled on an angle very close to the edge of the frame. Maybe it was a Monday coach

Its the entire design of those crappy windows. Did lots of your rivet mandrels break prematurely on that upper row?

You're a funny man; I haven't even got my Centramatics on yet.

Busted my back building a 8'x 4' x 8" thick pivoting walnut door with matching walnut panelling on one side and intergrated pulls. Door weighs 340lbs+; had to turn the bloody things a couple of times and stand it up. Also lifting a few bloody heavy 1' x 1' x 8' solid fir columns for a portico and 10' x 3'x 2 1/2" solid core doors. I'm getting too old for this crap and the better half is getting a bit thick for walking on my back.

Taps rig is going to be in better shape than mine. I'm working on it this weekend.....promise.

14C here in Southwestern Ontario and 34C in freaking Winnepeg!!!!

Cheers
Tony
