2 minutes


The old wind springs were too bad to repaint and moreover the connection between the parts was screwed. I made new wind springs with a glued connection of the miter cut parts

Replace wind struts yourself

The measurements taken from the old wind springs and the required lengths ordered at TOSIZE.com. Because I no longer wanted to screw the parts, I always had one side of all 4 panels cut with a miter. Then used the old parts as a template to mark them and saw them to the exact size and shape. The long parts, with the mitred side, fastened together with duct tape so that a hinged effect was possible. The resulting V-shaped groove was then filled with waterproof wood glue and, after drying for a while, was put in the right shape and fixed with 4 pieces of tape. After drying the tape removed the sharp corner of the blunt and all cut edges treated with edge primer. After fitting and a very small piece of adjustment work mounted. And just disassembled again so that the painter can give all non-visible sides a lick of paint

Final size: What are the outer dimensions?

230,0 x 27,0 x 9,0 cm 190,0 x 27,0 x 9,0 cm

How next?
