Re: Cassese underpinner model

Hi Fran - This is a Cassese 299M Ultra (with lock button) - the manual is still available on the Cassese website. They're no longer made - nearest equivalent would be the Cassese 200. I bought one second hand six months ago from TGS Repairs in Basildon, who do onsite servicing for all equipment. It'...

Re: Framers Workshops at the Guild Weekend

I'd like to endorse Justin's comments and thank all members of the FATG for laying on an excellent and informative day. I've never been in doubt that supporting the Guild through membership was worth the money I pay for it and this day simply reinforced my view. Although I've been framing for quite ...

Re: Cassese cartridge wedge not firing

I was given a very good tip a while ago in relation to Cassese cartridges which you may find helpful. Keep the white or yellow 'pushers' from inside the cartridges when you've used a cartridge, and insert an extra one into a part used cartridge. This helps to maintain forward pressure on the wedges ...

Re: Football display cases

Apologies for the delay in replying and thank you for your advice and help. I've now spoken to Barry at Dreamkeepers who seems very helpful and appears to gave exactly what I need at a reasonable price. Crucially he can supply the cover on its own which allows a framer to make a custom made base. Th...

Football display cases

Good morning everyone - I have a signed football to frame and my client would like to have this presented in an acrylic box. I'm then going to make a plinth for the box and following a previous suggestion from Mark Lacey, I'm going to insert a mirror in the base so that all the signatures show up we...

Cassese CS1 Cart underpinner for sale

I am selling my Cassese CS1 Cart foot operated underpinner. It has been a really reliable machine and has had fairly light use since I bought it from Wessex new in 2014. The only reason I am parting with it is because I have upgraded to a pneumatic machine and need the space in the workshop. New foo...

Re: Picture hooks

Rainbow - I would be careful with these - it's not so much that the hook snaps, but unless the wall is of the right density these will not penetrate properly and will fail. I have several customers who've tried these and come unstuck. I'm sure it's not due to the inherent quality of the hook, but a ...

Re: Koto mouldings

Hi Mark - I've used the Wessex Koto mouldings quite a few times and always found they cut and joined really well. I started using them as I found they joined well on a foot operated underpinner and took stains and waxes well. Definitely worth a go. I'm sure they'll send you some samples to try. Good...

Re: Help with finding this mount

Matt - As Prospero rightly says, the tricky part may be finding the paper. Although you can get printed paper, the problem with marbling paper is that it's generally all hand made and each sheet is a one-off. A fantastic source for marbling paper not far from you would be Jemma Lewis in Melksham in ...

Re: Moulding ID please

Hi -

Think you'll find it's C2810 or C2005 (depending on width) from Wessex. Page 279 if you have one of their catalogues. Otherwise all online.

Good luck

Re: The White Decision?

Keith - Try CC paste from Lion (9846). I've tried just about everything but this works really well. It fills well and wipes off any surface with a damp cloth leaving no residue. I resisted trying it for ages, mainly due to the price, but it comes in a big tube and seems to last for ages. I'm still o...

Re: UV acrylic

Hi Rainbow
I would give David Palmer a call at Wessex Leatherhead. I went to a FATG talk given by him yesterday and he was discussing a wide range of products at a range of costs. His knowledge is huge and I am sure he will be able to give you good advice.
Good luck

Re: Cassese CS 1 Cart

Hi Tom - My CS1 is standing 940mm from floor to working table. This is with the adjustable feet extended to their maximum. You would be able to lower the whole thing by about 10mm if you wound the feet right in. I also stand the machine on a 50mm homemade plinth as I am 6'3 tall. I find the extra he...
