Re: White mount boards

Last year I had a problem with Arqadia Solidcore conservation board. It is a solid board using the same material throughout i.e. face, backing and core all being the same, and the batch I received had a slightly different colour face paper to that of the backing when they should be exactly the same....

Re: Tape to use?

Here are my thoughts about tapes and their uses. There are two parts to tape; the substrate (the tape itself) and the adhesive. Tape can be made from wood pulp, cotton rag, linen and Japenese papers such as mulberry tissue. Wood pulp contains lignin which will degrade over time and as it does it pro...

Re: Subframe fixing methods

I must go to the same school as Justintime :lol: Here are some photos of the Wessex subframe in use (PW219) the frame is about 90x110cm I just cut and join as any other moulding... plenty of glue and V nails.

Re: Morso fence question

When your left fence is set correctly to give x4 snug corners, then it may not be dead flush with the right fence. When you make you final cut i.e. in the last notch, make sure you pull both sides of the moulding flush up against both fences. For wide mouldings you may not be able to pull the mouldi...

Re: Self adhesive boards for mounting photos

Yes, I still think in inches but measure everything in metric :roll: Basically, we’re talking an A4 size photo here so no problem using sticky board with a hand brayer roller. But also the methods shown in the videos will be good too including paper hinges. It also depends on whether you are using a...

This is the stuff you want https://www.lionpic.co.uk/p/9699/Zest-It-Natural-Solvent-Cleaner-125ml Trying to remove anything like sticky glue from paper is never really safe or foolproof but this stuff will be your best chance. Another option is not to remove the glue and cover it with a dusting of f...

Re: Self adhesive boards for mounting photos

Thanks for your ideas on this. I have a bit of homework to do in finding the three videos I think this is the video Peter mentioned. I'll just say that for photos as big as yours, corners pockets may not be the best option. With corner pockets the photo has to support its own weight. You would be b...

Re: Mount Cutters

You want the tech s .012 for general mount cutting s blades are a single chisel edge and you can only cut on one side. I prefer the d knife edge blades as you can use both sides of the blades which means twice as many cuts per blade :D I do use the chisel edge blades when cutting thicker board as I...
