Re: Hanging on difficult walls

Gravity is all present. Glass is a non-porous material that is quite smooth. Yes there are some super epoxy and other compounds adhesives. What will be the outcome of the mirror when the client wants to move the placement of the hanging art? Will the adhesive fail? Can the adhesive be removed? will ...

Re: How about this from tree to frame

If you have to ask, you can't afford the frame.

Even with a salaried in-house staff (plus overhead) and a no profit calculation, over $100,000.

Re: circular frame

A flatbed table CNC router is the only way to fly these days to make round or oval frames.

While the following is not a picture frame video, it does show a round routing job in wood.

Re: Flakey painty

Paul, no matter what you add on top of the unknown white paint you will still have a problem with the adhesion between the "unknown white paint" and the wood. If they are not willing to pay for proper surface preparation, go no further and decline the job. Who knows if the chairs were properly clean...

Re: Restore / Repair Very Old Frames?

One of those frames has wood loss in addition to compo loss. The replacement wood would have to be pinned to the main structure of the frame on the right. It would be necessary to see the entire 2 frames to see the scope of the project. Being on the other side of the pond would be problematic for me...

Re: Contract CMC wanted

With that volume of production you might want to look for a used CMC.

I would be charging about $100/ hr considering a labor rate plus overhead on my machine

Re: Collapse

Stating the obvious. I see that the vertical brackets are only single vs double weight uprights. You need to use commercial weight uprights vs the consumer grade. A second note, hammer each shelf bracket into position so that each finger of the bracket is set securely into the uprights. https://www....

Re: Very fragile Chinese silk fixing

First off, is this a decorative piece or something that has to be preserved (conservation framing)? Second, an air gap between the art and the glass is essential for conservation framing. Third, non-buffered alpha cellulose or better boards should be used for organic materials such as silk. I would ...

Re: Art touching glass

Does the backing of the mount have sufficient size allowance to allow for the expansion and contraction in the rabbit (rebate)? If not that could cause the bending of it with humidity changes.

Re: Heavy mirrors to hang

Sorry, I posted a response in another "mirror" posting. Your framed mirror is in the 55 pounds(25 kg.) range. Depending on the strength of the wood frame, I would use 3 screw strap hangers or use a French Cleat.

Why are you using 6 mm MDF as a backing? Its very heavy and 3 mm should work fine.

Re: Mirrors 40 x 50 cm bevelled edge Qty 100

Based on 6 mm mirror, that is in the 3 kg range plus the weight of the frame. I would consider those as a smallish mirror. Just about any quality "D" hook hardware with one screw will do. Just make sure that you are using wall anchors in the drywall (plasterboard) appropriate for the size of screw b...

Re: Flaky board leaving bits

Are you saying the the art was mounted to a sub-straight by another person (possibly the customer)?

If so, you have to tell the customer that customer supplied items are "as is" and not warranted.
