Re: Hello from Somerset

Washlines are also known as French matting, which will help your search.
Have a look at "Ursula Hobson-fine art of french matting" and search for "wash lines on picture mounts" on youtube.
There is a french matting group on facebook for ideas and encouragement.

Re: WANTED pneumatic underpinner

Imho if you want to produce good joints with hardwood, have a look for a second hand Hoffmann MU2 (I got mine from Hoffmann UK). I'm using mine more and more for tricky prefinished mouldings too, ones which I struggle to get right with a pneumatic underpinner! Underpinners are great when you have le...

Re: Framing equipment

Hey Tom,
girlfromkent has just advertised an older keencut mountcutter for £300. It's probably a good place to start on a budget.

Re: hello from Dorset

Hi Sparky, This forum is a good place to advertise. There are also a number of groups on Facebook, always mention that it's a UK ad, as many of the groups are based in the US or worldwide. "Professional Picture Framers Group" is UK based I believe although like the others has a worldwide audience. A...

Re: Fletcher Mount Cutter £50

Is this still for sale? Is it complete and ready to go?
If so would you be prepared to pack it, ready for collection by my courier?
Thanks

Fletcher Mat Mate Oval Circle Mount Cutter

Does anyone use one of these? Is it any good? Or is it better to look for a Fletcher 1100?
Thanks.

Re: Glass - cutting, quality, supplier.

We have just had an experiment with this. A friend brought in a piece of 6mm glass for me to cut for him, straight from his cold shed. First cut was hopeless, a few minutes with a hairdryer and it cut perfectly.
