Re: Rose&Hollis "very deep box section"

Used it several times with great success - but beware they only fit one way around for a perfect fit so ensure they match before you cut on the morso. i cut the sides for each box as i go (ie assuming a rectangular box, sides 1&3 of top and bottom mouldings then 2 & 4 the same), create the two boxes...

Re: St Ives Framing Advice

Steve N, I'm with you. Customers like choice, they like modern mouldings and the huge variety that are about and to say that framing a picture with a finished moulding is not proper picture framing is an insult the the vast majority of framers who are in business to make a decent living by producing...

Re: Canvas Stretching

Was the canvas stretched when it was painted? if not could it be that the medium has caused the canvas to twist?

Only time I've had the problem was with a canvas which had very heavy layers of paint in some areas on the canvas which caused it to twist.

Re: Not quite cutting right

Don't file anymore - follow the link that Steve N posted the other day in reply to your query.

Alternatively seek out a Morso handbook where all is explained.

Re: How long would computer mountcutter blades normally last?

if cutting lots of cuts in one go are you loosing any air pressure and then not driving the blade with sufficient pressure? i have the problem if i forget to up the pressure when cutting 3.5mm boards.

Re: Hi there

2mm glass comes in big sheets so i would be happy with 2mm.

Wessex do it in 3' x 4' (915mm x 1220mm) so a small cut and you're there.

Re: Do you tape up your package?

I'm with Prospero on this. I use Tessa masking tape, which I find, is reasonably easy to remove should you have to at a later date. Not only does the package mean you can assemble a number of pieces and then put them safely aside to be dropped in their frames at a later date but it also removed the ...

Re: Another fascinating packaging thread

The cardboard corners from Simons adjust to 3 different depths of moulding so are extremely flexible and a lot cheaper than foam corners and recycleable :-)

Re: Foamboard for fabric framing

i often use 3mm instead of 5mm for that very reason - so many moulding just aren't deep enough. if the piece isn't too big then you shouldn't have a problem.
