I have reviewed the site pretty well as well as read the Window Report. One thing that I have not seen addressed is what size V Spring Bronze & Spring Bronze to use.

Should you use the largest that will fit in the window track?

If you use the smallest 1/2 inch to fit next to the pulleys are their disadnantages?

What are the disadvantages vs/ advantages to using different sizes.

Thought this might get answered since I have yet to come across this point.

Thanks for your help!

Paul

though i have no scientific proof as to why, i have always used the largest spring bronze width available that will fit comfortably in the jamb...

since the 'open air' space in the pulley is very small--maybe a 1/2" above and below the actual round pully, i run the weather strip up to the pulley then add a piece above the pulley...some people use one full length piece but cut out around the pulley...

as long as the spring bronze covers the space between sash and jamb, it's doing its job...

hi drew...
you'll need to figure out the exchange rates, but here are a few choices:
