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: Morso Blades - Again (yes, sorry)

... process which apart from wasted time is easily sorted (hopefully). The problem with being in N Ireland is we're limited on options. I'm sure mainline etc are excellent but I've been quoted around £70 pet sharpen :( - the carriage is a killer. Anyway, I'll update this next week & thanks ...

Trying to match a moulding

... on checking today it’s discontinued. Im struggling to find anything with a similar profile and finish. Any ideas? I have looked at Lion, Wessex, Mainline and Holroyds. Was also wondering if that finish is something that could be done by a hand finishing newby like myself, I’ve only done stains ...

Re: Blade sharpening.

Wessex and Centrado offer a sharpening service and if you have a van delivery there is no carriage cost. Mainline actually have a Morso built sharpener so for my money, even though you have to pay carriage, this is the one to go for.
