comment Repair a crack in a brick windowsill
The house is wood frame construction over a basement. I'm located in New England. The window works fine. I only moved in in August so I haven't tested the window in super cold weather yet. I noticed the new crack shortly after I moved in and it is worse now 4 months later than it had been.

The house is 20 years old and these windows are original to the house. They are crank style with aluminum frame.

comment Diagnose interference causing garage door opener remotes not to function
@hopkins-matt I'm thinking it could be related to the heating system. That might explain why it is intermittent: it would be a problem only when the thermostat is calling for heat.

No, I haven't been keeping track well enough. I should probably start keeping records which might come in handy for diagnosis.

I'll try that, thanks @gbronner

Any idea what kind of turnbuckle would work? Most of the ones that I've found are meant for tightening a line (hooks or eyes on the ends) rather than fastening something with tension. Most turnbuckles seem to come in sizes measured in inches. It seems hard to find one short enough.

I don't think that will work for me, but +1 for the good info that somebody with a similar problem might be able to use.

How hard would it be to remove the epoxy if I ever wanted to do that?

I edited the question to include the depth measurement (with photo)
