A spring in my strip

Looking past why I was installing weatherstripping in January, check out the nifty old packaging of this spring bronze weatherstripping that I snagged from my manly cohort’s brother-in-law. He found it on someone’s front lawn waiting for trash day.

Almost 60 years old—and they never used it. I made up for lost time.

I use screws instead of nails—except on the very edges sometimes when I can’t fit the drill into the space to drive in the screw.

    Yes, I totally lucked out. I bought some earlier from Kilian Hardware, which has a sale on now—100 feet for $95, but it’s regularly $140! Eeeep.
