Forum Title: Aluminum double-hung - trouble re-installing window shashes
Is there any tricks to getting an aluminum window sash back in place? I'm having trouble getting the pins in place. I can get the pin in place on one side, but am having difficulties aligning the opposite pin in place. Thanks!

Quote: 6 �� wide with a �� overhang on the front stoop. Yes, take off the 1 thick apron that is under the door, go with the 5 3/4 sill (could have sworn that came standard), and replace the apron trim with something not as thick. I think that you will find that if your wall thickness is really 4 9/16 that you will be able to install a 3/4 thick 1x under the door and still have a 1/4 lip, which is just about perfect. I don't know that there is a standard but the sill nose extensions are an aluminum extrusion that has an outer leg that is about 1/4 back from the front edge of the sill nose. If there was a 1/2 lip, that leg would have nothing to sit on, and the sill nose would want to tip down since they are usually hollow underneath. So IMO, 1/4 is perfect. Some guys will let the apron extend out PAST the front of the sill nose a bit and caulk it, but I don't do that since I feel the caulk acts like a dam and traps water under the sill nose and door.

One shoe must be positioned higher than the other and that will allow the pivot bar go into the shoe. That's the slight angle joecaption1 mentions.
