Re: Morso fence alignment

... Usually a gnat's whisker is all that's needed. If you overcook the tweak then you will start to get a gap. You say that the blades were ground by Mainline, so they should be good. You could try removing them and check that they are seated correctly - no bits between the blade and block and also ...

Morso fence alignment

... near right I have had to pull the left fence (as you look at it) toward me by quite a bit (see pic). I have just had the blades sharpened by Mainline, although the problem was there before the sharpening, & I'm confident that I fitted them back well, with no dirt behind the blades. The ...

Re: Morso blades - where to buy?

I bought my latest brand new set recently from Mainline's web site, simply because they were the lowest price of all the suppliers with them in stock at the time, and delivered next day.

Re: A plea to moulding distributors

... but... Surely keeping your website up to date is a fairly basic part of running a business now? The only decent websites I've seen are Lion and Mainline. Everyone else's is full of discontinued lines and doesn't have new lines. I do feel like we give suppliers a lot of leeway because many framers ...

Re: Mainline All Size Stretcher bars

A lot of canvases end up on rigid bars and are stretched on machines. I'm thinking the typical mass-produced digital prints. "Wall Furniture" as I call them. Often the canvas is a plastic-based concoction and they don't react with ambient conditions in the same way a 'proper' painting does...

Re: Mainline All Size Stretcher bars

That means that so far, we have systems / mouldings by length from Mainline, Wessex and I know that Simons also offer a slotted moulding and an acompanying flat section for cutting up to make the triangular corner wedges. Anyone know of anymore? I guess that ...

Re: Mainline All Size Stretcher bars

:lol: It appears that I did the same as Mark and followed on from his reply. So this is my reply transplanted from where it was to where it should be. I've used the system that has one slot on the inside. Mostly from Wessex. It comes in three sizes.... The middle one is quite hefty stuff and has two...

Re: Mainline All Size Stretcher bars

It appears that I may have replied to the wrong thread about asking Mainline about their all size stretcher bars. So with apologies, I therefore have cut and pasted my reply into the correct thread. I phoned up Mainline the other day to check out their prices ...

Re: Mainline All Size Stretcher bars

Neat idea. :D One drawback is that you can't adjust the tension in one direction only. Knocking the triangle in forces the corner in two directions. OK on most canvases, but occasionally you need to impart tension in one direction and you can only do this with double-mortised corners where you have ...

Re: Mainline All Size Stretcher bars

I have not tried these at all, but the Mainline rep has demonstrated them to me. It's quite an impressive system, but I'm not sure how effective the triangular wedges are. When I am fully installed in my new premises and finances are good, I ...

Re: Mainline All Size Stretcher bars

Thanks Ed

Do you glue or staple once joined or are they just friction fit?

Re: Mainline All Size Stretcher bars

Seems a good system as you can join off cuts with the appropriate joining bit

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: Edge-less canvas stretcher.

I’m sure Mainline here make something like that (obvs a bit far away from Jordan) - I think it was called the flatscreen stretcher or something. Just had a little look - they’ve discontinued it!! I can't deny it's a very good ...
