I do not see something about " Tension adjustment", thought it was important. Do your shutters have that?
Bernhard W on Mar 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is no Tension adjustment. If the shutters are made accurately according to the guide then they have enough tension to stay in place. On the other side these are not heavy duty shutters and are not meant to be operated all the time.
why can't these be wider than 24"? I need 28" and do not want to put two 14" together
Mel H on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Shutters wider than 24” are generally not recommended due to potential issues with warping and sagging that may occur.
with the 1 1/4" movable louver shutter template can you fix the louvers were they do not move?
A shopper on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: no, for fixed louvers you'll want to use http://www.rockler.com/1-1-4-fixed-louver-shutter-jig-and-hardware instead.
Is the router bit to make the louvers included.?
Fred M on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I bought the Router Bit from Rockler.
You mentioned these aren't, to be used all the time due to not being heavy duty (answer to question about tension adjustment). Should I use a different type of wood?
Dave Y on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I believe JAM N's opinion on 'heavy duty' is in reference to the plastic shutter pins, which provide the tension for the louver. They provide plenty of tension. I just hope that the plastic pins have enough UV inhibitors to prevent them from degrading in the sun.

If i were to make a new set of louvers, i would modify (and simplify) the design to use stainless steel pins and washers.

As for wood, I salvaged a bunch of interior doors and got some beautiful, clear wood (a mix of hemlock and fir).
Are there further instructions regarding mounting the finished shutters?
Wayne B on Mar 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The instruction booklet does have some suggestions for installing and doing the trim work. These are good reference but it really depends on your windows, if you have any interior trim and molding around the windows, and your own preferences.
