Fletcher 3100 stand

Postby Ed209 » Thu Apr 11, 2019 10:24 pm

Bit of a long shot but does anyone have a stand they want to sell also does anyone use the 3100 on a stand?

I have it on the wall, if you can, I think it's the best way.
If you can fix a whole sheet of 18mm ply to the wall securely, you can mount the cutter to the sheet.
Mount it has high as you can, within reason. The higher it is, the easier it is remote the cut martial below. YouTube Fletcher installation video.

Should have said I have mine wall mounted already but just got keys to new premises yesterday and the new shop is all fitted out with slat wall (ex charity shop) and ultimately it will be fixed to a wall but not sure what location yet especially as I have some new other large pieces of equipment coming, I just remembered they do a stand and if I could get one for a reasonable price as a temporary measure until final layout of work shop decided.
But as suggested a 18mm ply sheet may work well as I could fix the ply to the wall space above the slat wall and it will be supported on the floor so require minimal fixing low down until decision made on permanent location.

Hello Paul :D

Just echoing Justing's "good luck" with your new shop. If anyone can make a success of it it's you.

I hope you keep busy and start to recoup some of the money invested.

Once again, wishing you every success.

Peter.

Well done for taking the plunge.. I started my first framing shop in 2004, it was not my first shop, because I had a secondhand bookshop before that. However, I can tell you that, my business started to take off during the following two years, even though I had a heart attack in 2005.

No two businesses are the same, so your learning curve will be different to many others and the way your business develops will have a lot for you to learn from and you will be surprised how much you will develop your knowledge as time goes by. In a couple of years time, you will hardly recognise yourself.

May I wish you good success for the future,
Mark
