Re: Custom made craddles for object framing.

We tend to 3d print whatever we need, not that it is very often but these things do make life easier 😃

Re: How long have you been a framer?

Almost 3 times as long as this thread has been going, although I only frame the odd piece theses days, to keep my eye in so to speak.

Re: is it worth trying to re-purpose some narrow mahogany frames?

Only you know that, if you have the spare time to do it and it won't impact on your other income streams then go for it.

It wouldn't be cost effective for us based on what I have just said.

Re: Glass on artwork?

Re: Stacked Frames

you can also "stack" multiple mouldings to create extra depth for item framing, this was 3 mouldings stacked to make a 5" rebate depth, because a large box stuck out the back of the frame would look unsightly, plus the fact I was getting board of paperwork and wanted to do something creative for onc...

Re: Plywood prices.

There is a shortage of wood world wide, there are many reasons why, one of them being the vast amount of wood we have lost due to forest fires over the past few years!

Re: Morso blade retaining bolt size.

If they are the size I suggested I can get 5 for the half price of 1 of the ones you suggest and machine the head down to the correct thickness in my lathe and have spares. Any idea if the thread type? Really, that sounds like a proper good deal, you could perhaps machine the heads down on the othe...

Re: Keeping warm in the workshop, while conserving heating.

Mine is the iheat one, it will keep me warm all day, but I only put it on for 20 mins at a time or I will over heat, I think it will go continuously for 8 hours on the low heat setting, you can buy an extra battery so I guess that is a moot point, aI have never needed to swap out the battery though....

Many machines use generic motors, if you can find a part number on the motor, you might find that there are available from electoral parts outlets like from here

We have ours drain into a large builders bucket with a bilge pump in it, once the bucket fills to a certain level the pump kicks in and empties the bucket into the outside drain.

Re: Extra thick mountboard

Yeah, we use a courier who collects from the shop, customers know these are made up as required so can take up to a week.
Most galleries we supply get their orders between 3 and 7 days but it does depend on how busy things are.
