Re: Framing counter covering

Hi, we have just had to not only recover our benches, etc, but rebuild them again after a flood. What we have used this time for workshop benches is a very tight weaved carpet tile, we searched the internet for decent ones, but ended up at our local B&Q store, where we got a pack of 10 for just unde...

Re: The merits of MDF Backing Board?

Hi I agree its all like de ja vu all over again, but this subject of MDF will continue to pop up from time to time, and rightly so. I agree with Roboframer that a lot of framers dropped MDF as soon as Corri-Cor came onto the market, and again rightly so, its a personal choice. Like most framers now ...

Re: The merits of MDF Backing Board?

Hi, I didnt mean for the topic to be contensious, I was only supporting the use of MDF, (for those who still use it) nothing else. It also says that what materials, tapes, techniques, etc. used to complete one of my 3 pieces for my GCF examination (12 years ago, and the only piece I wanted to keep),...

Re: The merits of MDF Backing Board?

Hi, I have used MDF for many, many years without any health problems, Cutting MDF with a wall mounted material cutter does not cause dust to fly everywhere. Sure there is always some residue left at the bottom of the machine, but I certainly am not going to kneel down and inhale it, as there is alwa...

Re Morso Advice

In reply to 'thecyke' I agree with all the other replies, the Morso (for me) gives excellent results all the time, everytime. The cut is neat, tidy and perfect everytime, but like every other type of machine to achieve expected results, one must look after the machine and change the blades regularly...
