    Hope someone here has some practical experience with fixing metal (in this case steel pins for a steel caesment window) into timber window frame (hardwood)?

    We have a customer where the pins keep falling out as the joiner we used decided to make big holes to put the pins in :cry:

    Have tried fischer fixings but their stuff is mainly for metal into concrete etc.

    Thanks, Andy

    Can't you just set them in resin? Or car body filler, or car body filler and re-drill, or glue in a H/W timber plug and re-drill?

    Thanks Woody, have you any paricular product you would recommend on the resin side? There's a lot on the market...
    Something that would be readily available but do the job for a few years? We already tried the timber plugs, not much use.

    I can't see why Araldite or any two-part epoxy should not work.
