My home has wooden frame patio screens. They have a routed groove at the center of each inside edge of the 1-1/8" frame and use spline. I have found replacing screens to be very difficult, especially at the corners, and have been searching for a way to convert them to removable panel screens. Five of the screens are nearly 5 feet tall, 4 of these are about 38" wide; another five are various sizes and shapes.

One thought I have had is to rout the wood between the groove and the inside face of the frame and install as in the olden days - staples and 1/4 round.

Any suggestions or hints on (1) replacing the screen/spline more easily or (2) converting the wood frames to accept the make-it-yourself vinyl or aluminum framing?

Thanks, Jim
