Rebedding window

2 mm / 3/32" spacers were advised to be placed in the bedding so as to keep the window "floating" on the bedding. While the screws are tightened up. Looking to find out what to use and how since I think they would need to be taken out afterwards. I have searched for info and have not found how spacers are used for this rebedding process. Thanks in advance....

Re: Rebedding window

Too general a quation without knowing construction of windows. Ours are aluminum frames with an inner and outside frame that clamp together and "float" on a foam gasket material under the external flange.

Re: Rebedding window

I have used suitably sized O rings as spacers (with the screw going through them) and left them in situ in situations where you can't see them afterwards.

Re: Rebedding window

I am by no means an expert but I just redid all my heavy bronze portholes.

I put a crap ton of goo then tighten until the goo starts to fill out. Then let sit for 30 minutes and tighten the rest of the way.

So far so good a couple of months and a few tropical storms later. I watch them like a psycho with a flashlight when it rains, daring them to mess with me.

Goo=3m 4200 in this case
