    (PHOTOS ATTACHED) -- Hi everyone... I had a repair man working in my utility closet and he removed the sliding wood door from its track to gain full access. In the process, I guess he either broke or lost the piece that this dowel goes into in the top track to slide back and forth. The other...

    Hi all, several questions about doors. After removing a stamp metal door frame, I see that the door's rough out has a 2X3 header that is not supported by jack studs.
