Re: Lion's new chevrons

I'm open to correction, but your getting a chevron/Sample that would cost approx £4.00 in material (not including labour) for .50p I expect these are made in batches at speed. other suppliers (you know who they are) would charge you 1M List Price for a chevron = £ 7.52 for the same sample In that ca...

Re: Underpinner wedges leaning backwards

I find hardwood wedges stay closer to 90 degrees if its an issue for you.

Softwood wedges tend to slope back (I too heard that this is good)

Re: Calling all Irish Framers

Neil serviced my Morso and 299 underpinner today + a few other bits and bobs.

Brilliant job and a very nice person to deal with.

I'm having to force myself to stop making frames tonight as both are so sweetly calibrated and working so well.

Money well spent.

Thank you Neil :clap:

Re: Underpinner

I've had a 299 for the last 5 years.

Only had one problem with it in that time.

Mine has a double action foot pedal which turned into a single action foot pedal until it was repaired.

Other than that, No Problems and low maintenance to date !

Re: Framing a print to see edges

Ahh, I see said the blind man. :Slap:

Thanks Robo.

See how that is do'able for smaller pieces.

Think I'll stick with the hedgehog method for larger pieces though, one of which I've just finished

Will take 1 kit - I'll send you a PM/email
