Antique Double-Hung Windows Missing Pulley Weights


Wow. I've seen so many of these that I just assumed they were common everywhere. In the link below is a sketch. About halfway down is a drawing of the access door to get to the weight.

Also to the OP. Because the sash have grooves cut into the sides does not mean they were weight balanced. Spiral spring balanced sash had grooves cut into them. Do a google search for "Unique Sash Balance"

N00B, I feel your pain. Most of our windows are shut in multiple forms, whether painted and screwed, glued and painted, siliconed and screwed, or wedged and glued. The previous owners just weren't handy at all... and were rather silly in their deferred maintenance.

Antique Double-Hung Windows Missing Pulley Weights


i have been working on a similar project since i bought my current home. I lucked out and found that all of my unused sash weights were stored at the bottom of the pockets. Also, i found replacement sash weight cord at my local ace hardware.
Good luck!

N00B, how's it going? I went today to help a friend on hers because she has more experience with the window work. She is doing those metal channel additions. Should I get the source info for you? She said she only found one place sold them, but they're only 75cents per foot or so.

We've replaced the old wood sash in our home with replacement windows. Have about 14 windows worth of pulleys/cast iron weights. Send me a PM if you'd be interested in them.
