Re: Wanted - ACP cut to size

Just an update to this. I’ve just ordered the Workbee CNC. The more I looked the more I could see opportunities to add value to what I do. It will be a bit of a learning curve but I’m looking forward to it.

Re: pain in the neck

Have you got a decent height workbench? If not this can lead to neck and shoulder pain, as well as back pain. Just a thought.

Re: Moulding ID Please

I think that is a Mainline moulding. I don't have the code handy but I think it's one of the Stratos range.

Re: Wanted - ACP cut to size

The workbee comes out at around £1800. Depending on options and size. Its a build it yourself kit. I've just built an entry level 3d printer and the research and practice I have down so far suggests the quality you can get is not good enough for frame decoration. You might be able to do this with a ...

Gainsborough plastic use a high precision saw and I've used them many times. They are near to me but I think they may post.

Any good sign makers should be able to help.

Box frame spacers

I've just made a batch of box frames for a customer and used 5mm foam core for the glass spacer which fitted nicely into the lip of the rebate. Only problem is it is white so is limited in matching the mountboard lining. I've fiddled about in the past with using layers of mount board, 3mm mountboard...

Re: FramR price rounding

I use rounding with the Wessex pricing program and think it's fine, no customers has ever commented. However showing it on the invoice is a bit daft in my view, it will only lead to questions and awkward moments. Not a good idea in my view.
