Hello i’m in the process of framing a house-full of Lexan Interior Strom Windows.
The lexan is 4’x8’ and 7/64” thick. I have some 1×2 furring strips that i’m going to cut a groove into with my circular saw to receive the Lexan; kind of a mortise-tenon with the lexan being the tenon. Once the frame is ready to receive the lexan i plan to add some adhesive … glue? caulk? ... something to stabilize the lexan within the grooved wood frame.
Essentially i’m wrapping the lexan in a wood frame, which i’ll further wrap with weather-stripping, and add pull-tabs to facilitate moving the storm window in and out when needed.
So i’m wondering how to tell at a glance what the kerf-width is of a circ-saw blade, so i can make sure i have what i need to cut the groove.
Lastly … any suggestions for helping to make this a successful project : )
