    I have a contract servicing loads of box sashes, included are the high level steel framed windows, anyone got any ideas where I can get approx. 100 mts of pully cord from, I guess it will be 6mm dia. but also not to sure about material, maybe a plaited polyester (non stretch) as used for sailing. Don't suggest chandeleries!!

    I bought some sash cord from my builders merchants recently. They had about 5 different choices. I can't remember the lengths that came in the pack I bought, but it's kind of red and white striped and cost a fiver. Don't use the very cheap stuff, it's useless! Maybe a good sized timber yard might stock the cord too. Hope this helps!

    On holiday in Yorkshire this year I went to visit a "traditional ropemaker" - I think he was in a town called "Hawes" he makes all kinds of ropes, special orders too. Dont't know if theres a webby. I assume std jute cord is no good for your needs ( SFD sell it).

    Try Marlow ropes. They make the stuff and you must be able to buy it direct. Not sure if theyve got a website, but its a starter for 10!

    How come you got a contract servicing sash boxes when you don't know where to source materials ?

    Travis perkins will supply you with sash cords. good discount for bulk buy. alternatively jewsons or local hardware store.

    Very good diy, It's the box sash's that is the work on this contract, I have the jute sash lines, and the new mouldings etc, it just so happens that I haven't needed control lines for high level steel framed windows before, but I have done plenty of sash work, and I am very good at it!!

    That's why I am doing it

    Thanks all for the advice on the line, truly appreciated
