I am really green when it comes to doing home fix-it work, so if I
sound like a rooky, I guess I am. I am looking for some simple
hardware and need some direction in how to find it. I have just
purchased a house. It is about 35 years old and has great original
windows. Since I am not sure the exact name for these windows, let me
describe them. They have hinges on the top and swing open from the
bottom. The simply push out, there is no crank system or anything
like that. I love the windows and they are in great shape, but almost
all are missing the support arm/hinge which allows them to stay open.
At the moment, I am resigned to propping the windows open with odd
objects like rulers, paper towel rolls, etc. I would like to find
somewhere (preferrably online) where I can find this type of hardware.
Any suggestions on where to go or even what to call these things so I
can seach for them would be appreciated!
