Mainline All Size Stretcher bars

Hi All

Anyone used the Mainline All Size stretcher bars? What is the verdict?

They look simple, albeit a wee bit more expensive.
Are they just a friction fit?

Re: mainline mouldings customer website

The T&Cs on the FrameBook site say that the supplier is Mainline, although that's not much help if the framer isn't familiar with FrameBook printouts. If you would like to purchase mouldings from this library please add your favourite products to a ...

Re: mainline mouldings customer website

Most framing websites don't show prices until you log in. Registering for an online account establishes your bona fides.
It's like the Member Only section on here. The innocent must be protected. :lol:
