Re: Yellow oak

I would look the mainline veneers then they are quite pale and unfinished, they also have the advantage that you can cut them easily on the morso and they pin well.

Re: Yellow oak

Most of the oak I buy from arqadia and Simons tends to quite dark and probably wouldn't stain yellow, however I think Mainline does an unfinished veneer which is quite pale and would take a stain.

Re: Sharpened Morso Blades

... sharp. I think they guy said the edge was too fine. At least there was no 'arguing' & I'm hopeful it'll work out for the best. I've considered mainline but the cost with shipping was quite expensive, around £60 if I remember correctly. At the moment it's £12 collected & returned to my door. ...

Re: Sharpened Morso Blades

I would send them to Mainline and get them properly sharpened on a morso blade sharpener.

If you do get them done locally make sure they are hollow ground.

Re: 3 frames jointed together

Hi, some good ideas and food for thought. I like the mainline system. I have a Morso and Mitre cutter but the Mitre cutter I have is not as accurate as I would like (it cuts the correct angle but tends to leave a slighly rounded edge as it addresses ...

Re: 3 frames jointed together

Mainline mouldings do a system that may work depending on what frame style she wants

We have been looking at FramR but this software does not seem to have the ability to add several jobs ...

Re: Mainline All size stretcher Bars

... something else when my current stock runs out. I don't think the magic morso rebate support that slides into slots is a common accessory, though mainline did kindly offer to look on ebay for me. It is a lot of faffing to feed the sacrificial mdf to the morso which only makes a quick job much ...

Re: Mainline All size stretcher Bars

Thanks for the link. :D It looks like they have added the back slot to counteract the twist. Not sure it would cure the prob completely. More ready cut-bits to buy...... IMHO it's a case of over-thinking or re-inventing the wheel. btw. On the Wessex (think Simons do it as well) stuff I cut my own tr...

Re: Mainline All size stretcher Bars

I've used and and found the same problem. I used mdf, although I don't use that stretcher moulding anymore as I didn't like the slotted back.

Re: Mainline All size stretcher Bars

A bit expensive for a 'budget' job, 2 way is far cheaper. Though it doesn't enable you to tension the canvas, that is usually not required on a 'budget' job.

Re: Mainline All size stretcher Bars

... not to deform too much as the blade goes though. On smaller ones you could always use a sacrificial bit of plywood in the slot when cutting. The mainline system is a bit more sophisticated with slots at the back. Never tried them. I find the Wessex ones work fine to a point. One issue is that ...

Mainline All size stretcher Bars

... enter the slot in the bar to prevent damage. The morso in the video seems to have a rebate support without the spud under the adjustable support. Mainline say the video was produced by the stretcher bar manufacturer and not their equipment. I ordered a pack on the strength of the video. Has anyone ...

Re: Moulding search

The silvery one is definitely Arqadia, the other used to be produced by Arqadia and Mainline but think it's discontinued now.

Get them sharpened at Mainline then you know they'll be as good as they can be.
