Re: Removing the smell from old books

What about those deodorising machines that look like microwave ovens? In the demo I saw, they put in an awful-smelling pair of trainers and sorted them out.

I'm sure you won't want to buy one, but I wonder if companies will put an item through for a fee?

Re: Watching TV.

I have a Samsung J5. It cost about £130, and the Mrs says it's not far off the performance of her S7 (£600, RRP). Case-wise, it's in a 'book' cover that offers a fair chance of closing if dropped (touchwood, not tested yet!). I know what you mean about the faff.....I took off the security thing wher...

Re: Watching TV.

I'm such a Luddite with tech. I only got a smartphone a couple of years ago.

BTW, have you noticed there is a direct correlation between how useful tech is, with how screwed we are when it fails? :lol:

Re: Hobby level framing equipment

Great idea for a thread, Mark. :clap: We all have to start somewhere, and I think ‘hobby’ kit can produce very reasonable results. I’d go so far as to say results that can be on a par with professional kit...especially as customers aren’t always as perfectionist as framers are (quite rightly, IMO, a...

Re: Ady-based in Telford

Welcome Ady.

I've heard good things about the Wessex Pictures week-long course.

Also, Justin on here (username Justintime) speaks very highly of Jan Stanlick's (spelling?...sorry Jan!) courses..... I think he's in Northants (and a member on here...username Mitreman).

Best,

Paul

Re: Collapse

Like me. you look short on space,Ricky(I guess all framers are :lol: ). The shelving in the picture looks like it'd eat up valuable space (and cash). How about fixing floor-to-ceiling wood battens (say every meter) to the walls, then fixing shelf brackets to those? Not only could you put plenty of f...

Re: Hello from East Lothian

Welcome Matt. You'll be fine, I'm sure. Seems to me painters usually make very competent framers - and make tasteful choices, too. If you're only doing it for yourself, you can set yourself up pretty reasonably. Check out Nobex mitre saws (streets ahead of what the DIY sheds sell), and I'd say get a...

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. JT, you are the bargain master! I find it shocking that the 'new' Cassese isn't up to the CS...

Thanks so much for your posts on this thread - so great to learn about such imagination & craftsmanship.
