my next door neighbour Eric, broke it, the bollocks came off in his hand when knocking for us to go to the 'Spoons.
These days we just have a Ring
Eric, Spoons, bollocks…Was this on fright night?
Also Nitromorse is nasty stuff, I don’t think it’s as good as it used to be, something to do with EU laws but evidently not as powerful, safety first. Lead in paint and sanding is not a nice combo.
Also go careful with dipping if thats a consideration as it tends to weaken the joints.
A good cabinet scrapper (you need to be able to roll a good lasting burr on it) might be a useful and cheap tool.
They do some very nice UPVC doors these days
Two word rarely, if ever, used in a proper sentence that does not also contain the words ‘not very’.
Yes nitro is defo not as strong as I was 20 or so years ago
We had 15 doors to strip so got them all dunked locally
Most were fine but a couple did weaken the joints. We reglued them and clamped for a couple of days Also these were all internal doors but save the boss a fortune of me having to hand strip each one
Have you seen the wood effect stuff?
Fabulous I think you’ll agree
They can set off one’s stone cladding a treat
Our neighbour replaced their 6 panel Georgian door with a UPVC one. It had the EH twat frothing at the mouth and was in a skip a fortnight later. He also got clobbered for his replacement rear windows which until then had gone unnoticed.
I remember in the 80’s they went made for it around Manchester. There was some really cheap and nasty stuff which was basically polystyrene covered in coloured sand. Suspect the fire brigade hated that.
Yes, I remember Jack and Vera having theirs done
Everyone knows Weatherfield Council Planning Board turn a blind eye for a portion of Bettys HotPot.
When euphemisms go wrong.
Stunning door. Deserves the best you can do. I can imagine a professional planning their retirement on that job!
