I have seen these in books describing how they are made but that is about all. If I can remember the title will post it here for you. Will also check my small library to see if it in one of those

Hi John,
Welcome to the site. Idon't know about plans or downloads but here goes.If you look at the Mumford & Wood website (i have absolutely no connection to the company)
there is a page called "2004 Conservation Box Sash" which shows 2 cut away sections anatomy of a sash window. Alternatively there is a good blog by Andy Bell (sometime member of this site) entitled "DIY Sliding Sash Window" on http// Sorry i do not have a link to either.
Hope this is of some help.

Hi John and welcome.
It is very unusual to be fitting sash windows in a new project so I guess you are looking to build replacements? If so, can't you use the old ones as patterns?

Hi John
Are you refering to a double hung sash window or a side by side double width window ?
I can provide plans and construction details for the first and have just made a double side by side. I can refer you to the right text book to find illustrations of the latter. i only refer to the traditional type with weights, I dont bother with the spiral balance type.
