Today the acrylic window panels arrive today.

I leave the protection film on the acrylic.

i opend the package with the replacing window profile.
This morning it was -5 degrees. "time to go to the back"for sawing the edge of the profile.

With to little space and the temps below -6 it is not plessant place to be.

I manage to get of the edge with my new dremel grinder. "and there goos my last disk"to small to work with.
Getting new disks this weekend.

I am not in the mooth to work on the desk this evening. This does not mean that i can do any planning.

Already thinking about the opening device for the glaspanelframe. "i might consider to mount gas cylinders for opening".

In the meantime a few pictures.

I made the windowsframe openings smaller then the acrylic pannels. So for making them fit perfectly i only use sandpaper.



The acrylic windows that i use are made from 6mm thick clear acrylic. The top of the surface is going to be the same as the surface of the frame "flat".



More work is waiting biggrin.gif



Ill be back.

Yes "first window is placed in the frame".

I always make the holes to small. This is because i dont want to scr..... up. rolleyes.gif


Here you see the acrylic window with protection film on both sides.
I kept the window frame 1cm shorter on both sides . This way i have a edge off 1cm for mounting the window.
Before i start working on the panel i put a piece of tape on both ends.

With a 1cm marking line on it i start working my way down with the file and sandpaper.
This untill i reach a dept of 3mm "thickness of the aluminium frame".



After filling and sanding over and over again. The window fith in tight. Yes biggrin.gif



Here it looks like the protection film flips up but it is on the bottom side.




So i guess two more evenings to finish the fitting in the windows.

Finaly the 3e window is fitted in the frame.

Off cours not without filling and sanding my but off. biggrin.gif

I am verry happy that the last window is in the frame. Altho i need to work more on the frames before i can paint them.

"ye" first two windows fitted in. One more to go.



Protection film still on the windows.



The size of the cut out for the windows are always to small . So i need to do som more file work.



New clamps. And ready to measure up the angles.



Ready for marking.



With the scalpel i make a marking line in to the window frame.



Only from a angle you see the carved in marking line.



After a while i am finished. band.gif





More work to do before i can paint the frames.
