Tenon mortise jig recommendation for amateur
Sorry I haven't been around for a while but life has been a bit crazy with four grandkids and all of them going to move into our house while theirs is renovated.
Anyway, I have a 1912 house with old wooden, I assume douglas fir, windows. They never had storm windows so have taken a beating over the years and the lower rail of the upper sash is sagging on many of our windows. I fixed one a while back, and had meant to make a template so I can easily repeat but didn't manage to do that. Anyway, I now have the idea that replacing the whole sash may be easier as the muntin bars have rotted somewhat on the one that I fixed. Would be nice to just take out the old and pop in a new one.
Is there a strong recommendation for a jig you can buy? I see some that are quite expensive, but would probably pay for itself with several windows, I think I need to do at least 3 or 4.
I'm certainly welcome to suggestions, and probably need to post some pics of my last window project.
Cheers and Happy new year,
