Hi all, thanks for reading this thread...

Our 1935 old house is giving us trouble again. This time it's the old wooden window that can NOT be closed 100%...

Here is a picture:


As you can see, it seems that the window frame metal piece (possibly for weatherization or something, or to prevent rain water coming in) is rusty and deformed in some way, and is preventing the two windows to close completely.
What would be the recommended way to get this fixed? Thanks!

is there any old wooden window diagram or something that shows what that metal part is for? Although I think it's weather striping it might not be, and it's not like regular weather striping which I can easily find the part....Have anyone had any similar issues before and was able to fix it yourself? Thanks!

Maybe I’m missing something but I’m not seeing anything in your picture preventing it from closing.

Are you sure nothings binding on the hinge side like built up paint, grime etc?

Pictures so small I can not see anything. Looks like the side of the window not the bottom.
