    I'm not an expert, but my inexpert idea thinks this is a good idea

    ahh, i used the batwing style internally on a bathroom door. probably because of user-error, but i found it meant i needed to rehang the door slightly set back from it's original position. or maybe thats whats meant to happen and i was being a dumb dumb

    Whats the forum approved method for draft proofing a front door?

    I don't really like the idea of adding a seal holder and seal - like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/331440202406

    But i do like the more challenging idea of routing out a channel in the stops to hold a seal.

    Anyone done this recently?

    This looks a great set up.

    I wonder if a newer - battery - circular saw with track adapter is a better solution than a shitty track saw and a shitty circular saw.

    probably depends on the circular saw, but my (few years old) makita is definitely not as easy to use compared to the £80 draper track saw i got for building a shed/doing decking. the ability to plunge into something to a stop point and then pull up without having to life the whole unit when you're finished makes a massive difference. maybe some newer circular saws can do that?

    tldr: a crap, cheap plunge saw is still better than my circular saw for use with a track for straight, repeatable cuts.....in my opinion

    We tried for a while (behind a cooker) and it became pretty manky within a few months.

    Have just got some thin copper sheet and bent it and glued it on, so it still looks neat but something that can be splashed and wiped etc

    i'm not convinced that's natural variation...

    you could use some osmo with the white pigment in it (https://osmouk.com/product/polyx-oil-eff­ect-raw/), but i'd think you'd just end up brightening the grains and it looking a bit off. worth a try though if you can't get them to sed you a new piece.

    if you fancy being a real knob - i'd ask for them to put a sample against another piece in the workshop and send you a picture.
