Re: Underpinner Opinions

I bought a CS1Uni cart new. Two and a half years later, I sold it for less than half and found a bargain CS88 for £100. I cleaned it, changed the hammer and bought a spare cable. It changed my working life. To be able to change cartridges mid underpin is brilliant, as is adjusting the fences, tilt a...

Re: Incredible Chinese paper cut art

You don't mention the value of the work or what level of framing you intend to work too. My wife is a papercut artist, usually working with white paper. I often encapsulate the pieces between two pieces of UV non reflective glass, spacers behind and a coloured mount behind. It gives great shadows. I...

Re: A bit of framing physics advice, please...

As prospero said, it requires a backboard, as does all work. Heavier backboard isn't going to stop the frame sagging at the bottom, if it wants too, but its unlikely to. If you cord it leaving enough for 2 fixings, this reduces the weight/stress on each d ring. I measure in 10cm by 10 cm from the in...

Re: A bit of framing physics advice, please...

3mm glass will just add more weight.
A well glued and joined frame of 1.5" sounds fine.
Sandwich with the glass, add a backboard and finish, job done. Allow for 2 points of hanging , when putting the cord on, this will reduce the stress on the frame from hanging.

Re: Jyden Chopper Value

In the UK that would come up on ebay for £350-£450 in that condition.
Personally I would not put any value on secondhand glass mattboard or mouldings. Same for the vice and handheld cutter.
I would advise a brand new set of blades, if you're starting out.

Re: Guide lock handle, tighten ?

Do you mean that the thread is worn on the bolt?
If so a local engineer should be able to redo the thread.

Re: Tuition Wanted (needed!)

If you haven't got them, get hold of the manuals and start from the beginning. Be patient, it can take soooome time to calibrate and to learn/figure out the ins and outs. For the Morso, I gave in and bought a £50 engineered steel rule to check the fences. It made my eyes water when I hit the but it ...

This member was particularly hard to get hold of, I seem to remember the best way was to Google Peckham Framers and call on the mobile number supplied.
