Re: 55-57 one piece windows

Tempered take longer because the glass has to be cut to size then tempered. If you are not in a large metro area it usually has to be shipped to a factory that has the oven to do it. Even though the Boise area has over 500,000 population all tempered glass for buildings has to go to SLC for tempering.

Re: 55-57 one piece windows

I have the window template scanned and where you can print it out and put together. Need a place that I can upload the PDF files to. They are in a zip file and are 9 files. Any clues where to host them?

Re: 55-57 one piece windows

Have you tried uploading them using this site to host? the attachment window says it will handle a 100kb zip file. If you split it up it may work?

It sounds like they are in pieces? If you can get a full size to me by mail, I can scan it on my big scanner and have files that someone could take to a blueprint store or kinkos and get printed on one sheet. I can scan max 42" wide x as long a paper is.

Re: 55-57 one piece windows

PM me your email and I'll send you the file. Not everyone will have places to go and have it printed on 20 x 28 paper, so I made it where anyone with an 8.5 x 11 printer could do it.

If you can do it in one file I would be glad to host that one as well.

Re: 55-57 one piece windows

Here is the link to the page.
http://www.thehollisterroadcompany.c...ecewindow.html

There is a Zip that contians the 9 files or you can download each file or one large format file that prints off on a plotter or other large format printer at Kinko's or Office depot.

I would reccomend that if you use the large format that you download the Print_me_first page along with the large format so you can verify the scale.
The Zip has the print_me_first in it.

Re: 55-57 one piece windows

Main thing to do is make sure the scale is correct and line up the cross hairs.

Re: 55-57 one piece windows

I'm glad Jared got the PDF file up and going. Mailing them out was getting pricey. and this way when people pull this up years from now it will still be helpful. I'm glad we did this, I know it would have saved me and dad alot of money if we could have found something like this acouple years ago. Let use know when someone gets it done. Or if you have ?'s about something just ask. Brian

Re: 55-57 one piece windows

I printed out the template. To cutting out all the little squares I put the paper on a glass surface and put a light underneath. It worked great, you could see right through the paper to lign up the crosses. It also give you a chance to fill in the lines instead of cutting the paper.

Cant wait to do the rest... even though it will be a while.
