Re: average packaging price for single frames

Blue foam corner protectors in lengths, will suspend the frame away from the box edges. I like to fix a piece of mdf over the front of the frame to protect the glass from direct impact. But glass can also break from the impact against the inside of the frame. I've been advised to use a glass sanding...

Re: Laminated Poster query

The lamination provides the necessary protection from any condensation that may form from time to time on the inside of the glass.

Re: Wanted - Handheld Pneumatic V Wedge Nailer

If space is an issue, I can recommend taking a corner of your workbench and fitting your underpinner snug up to the bench. The bench acts as support for longer mouldings.

Re: Estlite Query

I used it pretty much as it came for the first year, until I knew what my actual annual overheads were, what my hourly rate should be and what I needed to charge for each element of the job. When I seriously updated it, I think my prices rose by about 15-20%, but by then so had my confidence to char...

Re: Wanted - Handheld Pneumatic V Wedge Nailer

Depends on your budget and anticipated volume. I'm hoping to upgrade to a secondhand pneumatic later in the year. I started three and a half years ago with a shiny new Cassese CS1. After a year I decided that there was nothing more I could try, to improve my joins with it. I sold it at a considerabl...

Re: Wanted - Handheld Pneumatic V Wedge Nailer

Nope. Don't waste your money. Get a Cassese CS88 foot operated underpinner. It will save you a lot of stress.

Re: Power sanders

Meant to say, I have the metabo random orbital sander with abranet. First one lasted a month longer that the guarantee the second is doing better. Yes its dusty with the bag on but too cumbersome with a hose attached.

Re: Power sanders

One of the Jonhathans bought a festool sander and extraction unit and reckoned that his space was completely clean. They are not cheap though.

Re: Left hand Morso extension droops a little bit.

What about the plastic shims that carpenters and window installers use? They come in various thicknesses and in bag fulls. Im sure a trade would be happy to give you a couple to try.

Re: Security Camera System

I've just ordered a Wyze pan and tilt camera from Amazon US after reading some good feedback from US framers. I'll let you know how I get on...once it arrives, I think its coming by sea judging by the delivery time.

Ok, so if it's of no commercial value, a common to find object, special enough for the customer to want to frame it but not enough to restore it... Why not mount it using a cold roll laminator, onto a suitable board. Removing the wood bar first, obviously, which could be added back into the piece af...
