Just had some work done, remodelling an old door into a window. I'm not installing double glazed units, but keeping the old windows and renovating them.
The old shutters (with lovely pierced and cut metalwork fastenings) had to be cut down as well and the problem that I have now is that the metal rod that runs through this has been cut too short by the workman I employed - and in any case is missing the curved hook at the end which is supposed to curl around a thick 'pin' protruding from the window sill.
Would it be possible to do you think to add a piece to the length .....or do they still make the components for these fastenings, so that I could replace this metal rod ?
In other words is this going to have to be a bespoke solution from a smithy (any recommendations anyone ?)....or can one buy an off the peg replacement (somewhere in the Dordogne ?).
