Male Speaker 1: Okay. Removal of top and bottom sashes. I'm guessing now by my guess would be that we're going to have to tackle the staff or stop bead.

Male Speaker 2: That's right.

Male Speaker 1: And I was going to suggest the use of a chisel but you've put that idea already.

Male Speaker 2: Now, if you use a chisel in this position, it's a bit birched already because it can damage the woodwork in other side. You may want to reuse the staff bead.

Male Speaker 1: Okay. So, for a nice neat job, you're proposing the use of a simple block of wood.

Male Speaker 2: Yes. Well, this is just a piece of four by two or 100 millimeters by 50 millimeters.

Male Speaker 1: Technical.

Male Speaker 2: And just put it on the pane line and give it a couple of whacks [Phonetic] [0:00:46] with a hammer and it will break the pane line.

Male Speaker 1: Okay. That looks easy enough.

Male Speaker 2: It is pretty east, so why don't you a go doing it?

Male Speaker 1: Yeah. It's a funny feeling you're going to say that. I just thought you got a whole new sash window unit indeed all of the house stood by. Here we go.

Male Speaker 2: Just move gently upwards.

Male Speaker 1: Yeah. So, it's only just pinned in, isn't it?

Male Speaker 2: It's just pinned in.

Male Speaker 1: That's a crack to all the way up there.

Male Speaker 2: That's it, just move down. All right. And now you can use a chisel once.

Male Speaker 1: Really?

Male Speaker 2: Yup, once the gap is big enough.

Male Speaker 1: Right. Well, we certainly got a gap there, haven't we? And so, this is just a matter of just pinned in. It's just a matter of getting those pins out, isn't it? We can preserve this paint as much as we can. This should just all clip back together.

Male Speaker 2: That's it. And if you just bend it to the middle and put it out.

Male Speaker 1: Yeah. Okay. So, that's one down for the stop beads.
