Re: Morso guillotine - cutting poorly all of a sudden

If blades are good, try moving the cam nut attached to the handle that moves the blades back and forth, this adjustment will make all the difference good and bad.... Good luck.

Re: HD Bonding tape question

You hit the nail on the head, cost! i too work for a couple, well three pub chains and cost is always the issue for the most part whilst they want something looking a million dollars they dont want to pay a fraction of that, silicone works for me both on time and energy, and i need a fast turnaround...

Re: HD Bonding tape question

Well I'm not about to go into the outgassing of silicone other than to say I personally have never had one single instance of it, unlike using super glues where you definitely will have outgassing, I find that the elasticity of the silicone, easy to remove without damage, common sense would dictate ...

Re: Stretcher bar sizes?

One way is 40x30 timber mitred to the correct size then a slot cut across the mitres and insert a piece of ply to allow you to open up the mitres, once the canvas is on the either screw or nail in position can be a fiddle though, dead stretcher is another way and can get good results depending on th...

Re: HD Bonding tape question

No worries on that issue either, and for the weight your talking of, you need no more that a spot of it, Lion also do plastic holders should you wish to look at those or there are tapes but this is fool proof and on low value items well worth considering, Last week i framed a guitar signed by a mr M...

Re: HD Bonding tape question

Just a general builders silicone will do, since using it years ago to hang pictures where i cant mechanically fix ive used this method and not one failure ive used it on metalwork to test any damage as a result from its use and zero effect from using it so id say its a safe bet, if you need to take ...

Re: HD Bonding tape question

Im not advocating this, but just a wee thought, near 25 years ago i framed some huge pictures for an Edinburgh pub, approx 6x4 foot, it was a listed building so nailing screwing into walls was not a option, so after consultation they agreed to let me fix them with silicone, 25 years later they are s...

Re: Flag

Just off the cuff, and agree the realms of fantasy customers live in, but a board big enough to the size and expanding foam sprayed to give the shape, then lay the flag on and spray starch, within the usual shadow box, as i said off the cuff but its a start, good luck with that, these jobs can often...

Re: Best way to frame a large heavy piece of artwork?

As i made it, it has no name, any good size roller about 40mm diameter will do, it just takes the hassle out of trying to get it flat without it curling up or doing it freehand and ending up with a crease, when i get a chance i will take a pic of it, nothing fancy but it works a treat.

Re: Best way to frame a large heavy piece of artwork?

I can honestly say the hedgehog method works a treat and something i do half a dozen times a week on artwork up to a metre square and with no problems, having tried other methods throughout the years hedgehog is by far the best, another thing i do for posters etc that come in rolled up is, I made up...

Re: Old newbie but its not too sore

Yeah they can be a little daunting, its just so much of my framing is very big and way over half sheet size, still its just a knack of cutting and not on the system 5000, i cut it all free hand, finding it much faster that way....times money! :giggle:
