I am so sorry to hear about Ricky. He will be sadly missed, not only on here, but by many others.
Sincere condolences to all his family and friends.

To mount and fix the few records I have framed I use those domed mirror screws prospero suggests fixed to a more substantial backing board than is the norm. On the rare occasions I send framed items through the post I have made a box for the frames from scrap wood/board strong enough to protect the ...
Prospero :surprised: is not the only early bird! How many on here remember the days of Magnolia + Sisslings etc. They were a big players back in the 60's 70's and 80's I can relate an amusing story about Harold Horn at Sisslings. He phoned Daler to place an order and was asked " What's your account...
Hi Paul :D If you are interested in a brand new unused genuine Dremel kit, I have one. I purchased it recently with good intentions to make some special frames and have never got round to using it. In fact, I had forgotten all about it until your post. I would be happy to let you have it at a price ...

Same sort of thing happens with my brand new all singing and dancing TV. Purchased just before Christmas from John Lewis. I mainly buy from J L because of the after sales service and extra guarantee. In spite of paying the extra fee for installation I have had the engineer out twice to solve faults ...

Hello Liz welcome to the FF
Like Jan and other framers of a certain age, I framed and sold hundreds of H K oils through the 80's :D I remember seeing them for the first time at the NEC, a mountain of them priced from around £2 for the small ones and so on. Initially, I framed them on stretchers but soon realised that much less...
Not much to add to the already excellent advice from Justin/Steve N et al. :yes: With a larger frame I always "throw in" a couple of picture hooks, the double ones, along with an explanation and mark on the back of the frame a couple of crosses where the hooks should be driven in the wall. Two pictu...
I have a short length of very similar if not the same and mine is a Larsan Johl moulding. I have had it for some time and should have dumped it by now. But I kept it just in case as I usually do

Good morning Mitreman :D It's more than a little windy here at the moment on the edge of the North sea. Thanks for the regular updates you post, they are much appreciated. Great news about you expansion plans at your showroom and I wish you every success. Because of your hard work you deserve succes...
I have decided to upgrade to this second hand cs200. Although it has been well used it appears to be in excellent condition. Because these machines rarely come up for sale there is very little bench mark as regards price, therefore I'm not sure of what the second hand price should be. At least I do ...

At the moment I am mainly using Peterborough Conservation mountboard as the undermount. I "book mount" most images. Some time ago one of the leading suppliers had this make of board on offer because they were discontinuing it. I recall asking on here if the price was right. Even at the offer price m...
