Sash window repair, broken cord, and top sash stuck.

No sooner had I arrived at the house to start work this morning , than I had to turn back to home because I'd forgotten to bring the most important bit of kit - dust sheets. Thankfully it was only a couple of miles there and back.
The next couple of hours were spent sorting out a sash window with broken cords and a top sash that had been painted shut. It's a routine task for me, but it must be disturbing for  some home owners when they see their windows being taken to bits. The hardest part of the whole operation is the removal of decades and decades of old paint that clog the slides and hold the sashes firmly shut.
