Re: Glue for Polycore moulding

Any Branded HV (High Viscosity) Super Glue. HV glue is thicker so doesn't run and has a slightly longer cure time, both ideal attributes for framing.

Re: MDF cutting problem

Thanks for all your replies. Greatly appreciated. Not your average framer - Thanks, the boards are stored in warm dry conditions, this aggravates the situation and I have to pre damp the boards a few days prior to cutting as this reduces the tearing during cutting. Will certainly have a go at pre he...

MDF cutting problem

Been using Keencut cutters for around 30 years to cut MDF, orginally a System 4000 now using an Excalibur. Lately I have had a problem cutting 2mm MDF which I use a lot of. The wheels are tearing the board. This only happens on one side of the cut. Initially I thought the wheels were blunt, so got a...

Re: Another gap issue

Is there anything on your morso bed? A paper measuring gauge perhaps?

Do you have a left hand extension on you morso, if so, check it is level with morso bed and it doesn't go higher than the bed.

Re: Thin black frames

Great advice. The Morso is a reliable and rugged machine and like any machine will take many years to master the various tweaks and adjustments needed to correct issues, its a skill like any other. Sharp blades are essential if you need micro accurate joins. If the blades are blunt the moulding will...

Re: Help with attaching picture in float frame

Of course, using double sided tape will seriously upset the conservation police, but having done so you have used a tape that is not up to the job. Double sided tapes are a fascinating subject if studied closely and available with many different carriers and strengths. You can get foam based tapes t...

Re: Polecore 2 part glue..

With Polcore I have found the best glue is a branded High Viscosity (thick) industrial Superglue. HV is is much better than lower viscosity because... It has a longer curing time, typically 30 seconds which gives time for alignment of mitres. It bridges the 'grain' gaps of polcore perfectly. It does...

Re: Hello from Just Paintings

Hi Roger,

Good to hear from you. Used to buy paintings from you back in the 80's, Good times. Don't sell everything... you will end up back in the picture business after a few years retirement, mark my words. :D

Re: Copyright

Derivative works can be an issue. I don't know the exact current legal stance but two issues I came up against (quite) a number of years ago... OS would not sell me maps because I told them I would be framing and re-selling them. A framed product is a derivative. A well known publisher would not all...

Re: Glass cutting on te Excalibur 5000

You need to run the cut. After scoring, tap firmly enough to break the score at the top, this will break the score only part the way down, move your hand down a quarter of the way down and tap again, even a gentle push will work, work your way down. You only need two or three pushes on a full height...

Re: Framing an archery target

Sticking it down might not be a good idea. The target faces we used to use were either stiff paper with threads of fibre running through them or plastic based. You should find the target face has a large pin hole near each corner through which the target pins were put to hold the face to the boss. Y...

Re: Cigarette / Trade Card Corners

Re: Morso F help

Check the table surface is clean and free from dirt and obstructions. This can happen if the moulding is standing away from table near the bottom blade for some reason. Moulding will kick upwards at the gauge end during cutting if this is an issue.

Re: Do you have a Facebook Framing Page?
