Re: Underpinner advice

Hi T and welcome to the FF :D You may want to consider a second hand CS89. Mine copes with Oak and Ash with no problem. This specific pneumatic machine has a rebate clamp and as Mark said a good quality pneumatic is the best underpinner for hardwood. Changing the wedges from softwood to hardwood is ...

Re: Watching TV.

"DVD players with video recorders in one unit" they sound the business.

If I had one of those I could get rid of my old 8 track and all those chunky tapes :D

Re: Keencut system 4000

I too always hand cut my glass on a bench. IMHO cutting glass is the easiest part of the picture framing process and buying half size sheets that are supplied these makes handling less risky.

If you cut your glass in batches waste is minimised.

Re: Watching TV.

Am I the only one who noticed "Man in a Suitcase" stand his ciggy on end/upright on the table? I must have been very impressionable because it started me smoking :)

Re: Flakey painty

Just invested in a little paint sprayer (Wagner W100). I fancied one for the fence panels anyway :D . Going to do a coat or 2 of the Peel Stop, then spray on 2 or 3 coats of the water-based gloss stuff. To help with durability, I'll finish with rattle cans of clear lacquer - couple of coats Should ...

Re: hanging type for narrow profiles

Often it's good to remove the frame as a means of support altogether and use a stout backing with d-rings riveted on. The tails of the rivets need to be isolated if you want a 'proper' job. :wink: As seconded by Steve. And there are those little metal fittings that clip over the edge of the backing...

Re: Another frame

5ft x 3ft...that'd scare the life out of me! No need to be scared of over sized framing work as long as you have the necessary work space otherwise these large jobs will clog up your workshop. These days I don't get many jobs that size but when I do there is an upside. Firstly, it was a stacked fra...

That's a good example of turning an every day moulding in to something special :clap: :clap: :clap: It's one of the few moulding I buy these days by the 100ft because it is popular and good quality and a good price. Like you, I use it in a number of ways including stacking with small and large gold ...

Re: To bole or not to bole

Absolutely beautiful, and thanks for the pictures. I would not mind a look at the brighter frame behind :wink:

Regards the mirror glass, I would think twice before I replaced it. FWIW I find my customers prefer the original.

Thanks for the heads regarding the "Talking Pictures" channel, I loved Callen.

Being very nosey, it would be interesting to know the cost of the two frames. Not that I suggest, for one moment, prices are quoted.

Re: newbie advise needed - canvas framing

I mainly use mirror plates these days and not offsets. They come in many sizes and being malleable can be shaped as required. I buy on line in small quantities. Marks excellent point about adding a sloping slip is well worth considering for the reasons he mentions. If more depth is required I add so...
