Hi and welcome Barry,
I can't help you but I'll be following this thread as I have to build some windows for the shed on my allotment (as well as a greenhouse).

nice to meet u fellas.i think i ll get an enginereed timber 70*70 mm(of course)ur imperial sizes are hard work for me!!and start from there.is it possible to router out all parts on a cheap router table .ive only got 7 windows in my house 2 large theyll have 2 hoppers so basically 2 large deadlights.the rest will be a combination of hoppers and side lights but it would be good to have a tilt and turn which hopefully is just a mechanism.then if i ever get this far invest in a small compressor and give a spray finnish.Basically im looking for any diagrams especially on the joints whats the best and simplest a couple of four inch(still use imperial sometimes)screws do lol.No seriously it would be good to do this over here i can buy plastic for about 1500 but if i could manufacture it might be cheaper.my mate and i have built a couple of stairs for clients a quarter turn on to a straight flight then a 360 degree turn 2 loft conversions which were next to each other i ll upload the pics soon
