Re: Underpinner help (Alfamachines Minigraf 44)

That is a very interesting point, I know I pushed the hammer up so I could see the tip coming out of the carriage - and I saw it fitted in ok - I have to be honest and say I didn't check the lip on the hammer to see which way round it was pointing - I suppose the only way of finding out is to replac...

Re: Underpinner help (Alfamachines Minigraf 44)

Of course I mean underpinner not underpinned - combination of keyboard error and auto correct - unfortunately, I can't see how to edit a title !

Underpinner help (Alfamachines Minigraf 44)

I have an issue with an Alfamachines Minigraf 44. I purchased the unit second hand and when I had my morso installed that chap kindly installed the underpinner and gave it a service.

Re: Damaged prints in tubes

We wrap all our fine art prints in a layer of acid free tissue paper and roll them lightly so they unravel in the tube slightly and stick to the tube wall. We also use tubes which are the correct size for the print so they can't move around (end to end)

Re: Adobe CC

I use On1 10 just to resize and to do the soft reflect canvas wraps. I have to say though that I am not getting on with V10 and the wrap function, it does not seem to give me the size I want. Have you been using this function Graysalchemy, if so how have you found it?[/quote] I use photoshop CC with...

Re: Drawing software

We always used to use CorelDRAW as our main design package then export to the required format, however since moving to Mac, Affinity Designer is a fantastic option (and about 200 cheaper!!)

Re: Bespoke Stretcher Bars

We found it easier to buy the equipment and make our own - we distribute some Fujifilm media and I know wonderbar (with the spring brackets to keep the stretch) are a Fujifilm product so you could probably order online from their sites.

Re: Oil painting effect?

I have a very nice framing job to do for a new customer. The items to be frame are a number of lithographs, all hunting scenes. The moulding chosen is old stock Birdseye maple veneer and a gold slip.

This was at least if the original artwork worsens they st...

Re: Stretcher bar sizes?

We cut all our own using Morso, and underpinned V nails to create the frame. Have used DS Simons and Lion for stretcher moulding, both 20mm and 38mm profiles work well depending on size. We use a multitude of stretcher pliers and canvas stretching machines for ours, and Omar air stapler for finsishi...
