This is too long for the forum, so click below, and enjoy.

Please do not take offense. Many people will not open a word document that's just posted on a message board for fear of infection. It's a good practice. Cut and paste the information in multiple posts if necessary.

No offense taken. It was too long for one post, and I know I usually won't bother reading something stretched into two posts. Besides, it has an illustration in it. I guess sometimes we all miss out on something.

Humorous thing is. You are not opening a Word document from my site. You are opening a document from the same site you are already logged into. About the same thing as opening another thread here.

thanks for the write up. :thumbsup:

just so others know, it passed my virus scan....

8 pages and over 4500 words, no wonder he did not want to post it.

I can't believe it, 768 views of this thread as of the date and time of my post. Yet only 67 views of a very informative document. :(

I do believe in being caucus, but the number of post and their join date is right below their screen name. I would find it hard to believe some one would stick around so long, try to make up all those post numbers just to plant a virus. But then it is possible.

That is why a good up to date virus protection software is necessary. :yes:

Willie, good info.

Thanks, BK. But like I said earlier, the most amazing thing to me is that people just don't seem to understand that they are not opening a stranger's document... but rather an embedded extension of the very site they open every day. Oh well.

I was not aware of that either until you mentioned it.

And here I thought I was living life on the edge by opening such unknown documents. :laughing:

This is a great write up. Thanks for sharing.

As for hanging your own(non pre hung) I helped my grandpa do his whole house when I was 16. It was a lot of work. We did this because his house was older and the 2x4s are true 4" thick so pre hung wouldn't fit without an extension. We bought some oak 1 bys and ripped them on the table saw. Then used a hand planer to slightly back cut the outside edge so the trim would be sure to sit flat like the pre hungs are. Then we rabbited the top 3/4" so the top of the frame would sit on the sides. I then made a jig to route out for the hinges. I didn't have a router but did have a router attachment for my dremel tool so that is what I used, slow but worked.

Cut the old jambs out and started shimming and hanging the new frames. Then put the door stops on. Routed out for the hinges on the door and then screwed the hinges to the doors and jambs and then trimmed it all out. LOTS of work for all the doors in the house but learned a lot from my grandpa.

Hope it all worked out for you.

Excellent write up... I downloaded the document with no sign of virus. Thanks for taking the time to put this together.

I "printed" the document as a pdf. Send me an email, and I'll email the pdf to you if you're interested. PDF is Adobe's cross-platform document sharing format. I wrote it with Acrobat version 9. The document did not show the door illustration correctly in Word 2007, so I changed the layout to show the illustration and text more easily. Otherwise, no changes have been made to the original.
