Re: Ricky - Barnard Castle Frames

I'm speechless. Ricky always came across like one of the good guys. I never met the man but I feel a real sense of loss here. I'm honestly saddened by this news. Sorry man, you were taken too soon.

Re: Not quite cutting right

Blades replaced, and its cutting right the way through, I could probably take it back a slight amount, but its now cutting as Id expect. Well.....almost. The underside of the polymer is not as clean cut as id expect, once the cuts have been made I'm left with what I can only class as being jagged, ...

Re: board to mount photographs

I use the permanent fastmount boards from arqadia, I'm not sure how thick you want your boards though.

Re: Painting Restoration.

I've used Jim Mullin (https://www.irishartrestorers.com) in the past and I can easily say he's a pleasure to deal with, it works like this Hello, do you do restoration? Yes but no but (or words to that effect) Anyway, that'll take too long to go over the whole dialogue exchange so the basics are.......

Re: Glass cleaner

For me I just use Nilglass and the blue paper roll stuff I get from the catering company across the road, it costs a tenner for about 8 rolls and they seem to last for ages. I wear white gloves whilst I do it and a quick rub with my palm soon polishes things a treat :)

Re: Is it possible to run a business without a landlines

Yes, tethering your phone or creating a hotspot from it could be another idea. My 'landline' is actually an IP phone with a local number attached to it so, again, you don't need a dedicated line. I can take my phone anywhere that has an Internet connection and anyone who calls my local number will g...

Re: Morso Set Up - Thanks

Whilst I have used the left fence tweak I've had limited success and I do think (as Neil suggests) that it's a sign that something else is afoot. Over the years, it's coming on 10 now and I know that's still infant days compared to some but I've had my fair share of Morso/Cutting issues and every si...

Re: Windows 7 advice

Stopping support doesn't really mean anything, everything will still work as it does now. Nothing lasts forever though :( if you have applications that require updates then maybe there will be a time what Windows 7 isn't fully supported by your application. Until then I wouldn't panic.

Hello everyone So basically I want to buy a printer - something good, good reproduction that will give lasting results etc etc. I'll be printing nothing bigger than A3 I reckon, I don't know what to buy though, do I just stick to a cheapish consumer model or is it worth the extra and get something a...

Mounting options?

Hi folks I have this little paper cutout thing, the customer wants it framed but to be honest I'm exactly sure what to do with it. :? As you can see it's fairly deep - that's not a problem, I can build something to allow that but I think it's too deep to hang on a wall? I thought about creating a 's...
