Re: C&H mountcutters

Just getting to grips with my ('pre-loved') Super Deluxe 4060A. 'Super Deluxe'...our American brothers know how to christen a mountcutter :lol: A agree with what Prospero (I think) said a while ago: they are superb bits of kit with real soul to them. I was very lucky to get it in with the deal for t...

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...

Re: Glam Moulding

Nick, that looks stunning. :clap: :shock: :clap:

I bet you could sell these like hot cakes - if you've a mind to.

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

Re: Glam Moulding

Oh Nick, you've got me thinking now (never good for anyone!). I'd love to see a pic of the coffee table, if you ever get the chance and don't mind. When I was a kid, we had this stuff called 'Plasticraft' (spelling?). Basically, it was 2-part resin, and you could put anything in it and preserve it f...

Glam Moulding

Hi All, I've been lucky enough to acquire a ltd edition print by David Bowie. I want to put it in a moulding that glitters (and behind museum glass). Not the Christmas decoration type of glitter (that flakes off), but more glitter encapsulated within acrylic (if that makes sense). I want a simple, f...

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

Thanks, Justin. So you wouldn't beef up the ultra-flimsy (wappy!) hardboard with anything? I have some Artbak, but would that do any good or just add bulk? BTW all, I know this piece isn't an outlandish size; I'm just being paranoid, as per usual :lol: Still, better to ask people who know better, th...

Re: Retirement sale

Hi Charlotte, if you do go down the route of selling things separately, could you let me know what you'd want fro the mouldings & mountboard please?

All the best - and have a great retirement!

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

Thanks, Mark. You are bang on: it is an 'I don't want to spend much' job. It's a mass-produced poster, so I totally understand that thinking. It's been stuck down firmly straight onto the hardboard, so I am glad not to be involved in reversing that. The hardboard is very thin, and bends under its ow...

A bit of framing physics advice, please...

Hi All, Got a question regarding the job I put up on the Members' thread. Basically, it's a large-ish frame, with glass, and I want to get some advice/reassurance, please. The overall frame size will be 100cm x 70cm (portrait format). The poster is already stuck down to a flimsy bit of (flooring?) h...

Re: Hi all, newcomer here & advice required

Welcome, Gary. :handshake: This 'intro' section is a really good place to start. A lot of folk, including me, have asked all this sort of stuff. I think hourly rates seem to be in the £30 - £40 area, though of course that can vary wildly, due to location, work speed etc. There's so much on here, mat...

Re: Pet hates

Steve, it goes without saying that mods get a free pass; especially our shiny new sheriff (though probably ‘deputy’, as John is our sheriff :D ). Seriously, I didn’t mean to come over like the grammar Stasi. I just find it embarrassing for writing 'professionals' to not know their rs from their elbo...

PS. I take it we've all given up with people who write 'there'' when they mean 'their', 'to' when they mean 'too', it & it's etc. etc. :head:

LOL. I'm with you on that, John. I know some might think such 'nitpicking and old-soddery' about such things trivial, but I'm with Orwell on this. To mis-quote the great man ' when our ability to express ourselves clearly goes, so will our ability to think clearly'. Or maybe we're just whistling in ...

People (usually pro footballers, but it's spreading) who litter their speech with 'to be fair'. Oh, and people (and this has spread) who start sentences with 'so'.
