greenhouse glass
« on: March 10, 2015, 16:07 »
The time has come yet again to repair the old greenhouse.
 
I've done it too many times, but this this time i have to replace a triangular window.

Can someone please tell me the best way to measure this one. i asked the guy at the glass shop, but he wants to come and measure it for a "small" fee

Thanks

Which triangular windows is it the one above the door ? Im struggling to image which bit you can't measure...  :unsure:

I replaced the triangular glass next to the top of the door on mine a couple of weeks back. I was using polycarbonate offcut - basically shoved it into place and taped it steady - then used a marker and ruler to plot the edges - then cut it with a stanley knife.
I guess you could achieve similar for glass if you use a piece of cardboard to make your template. Then use the template to guide you and your glass cutter (paying due care and attention...)

Pip pip,

Use cardboard to get the same size and shape.
Dear God, Please can you stop the wind and rain and bring on the nice weather. Amen
