Re: Angle and gap problems. Knife Block issue?

Always had issues to be honest, which is why I bought new blades hoping that would fix things. Re reading some of the advice, it may be down to the possible material deflection someone mentioned, i.e. if I cut both angles at the same time then more force is required rather than just cutting each end...

Re: Angle and gap problems. Knife Block issue?

Agree as long as the blades are 90 degree on the knife block, but it doesn't look like that, appear to be very slightly less, even with new blades, so not sure whats going on there, but is enough to notice a gap once framed. Have removed them, checked and refitted. Moving the left fence back will re...

Re: Angle and gap problems. Knife Block issue?

Thanks, I'm actually cutting polcore (yes I know its not to everyones taste, but it suits the application I have) I did try your suggestions and has lead to some more queries, relating to how you actually cut the moulding and which fence you are lining up the cut with. This is how I see things at th...

Angle and gap problems. Knife Block issue?

Hi, I've been trying to fix a long standing issue I've had with my Morso where I sometimes get a gap in the join. I use quite a wide moulding and have spent many hours adjusting fences to try and resolve this. I've also just purchased a brand new set of Framers Corners Morso blades hoping this would...

Re: Guide lock handle, tighten ?

Thanks, it was more about how I take it apart, the bolt head looks rounded. Looking at the diagrams it appears that the locking handle sits over a nut on top, is it just a case of levering this handle off, I can then look at the nut/bolt tightness ?
thanks

Guide lock handle, tighten ?

Hi,

I noticed my left hand guide locking handle does not tighten as much as the right hand one. Does anyone know how to adjust this, presuming underneath somewhere, but the bolt going into the knob/handle is rounded ? thanks

Cleaning black high gloss moulding, spray ?

Hi,
I use a very high gloss piano black moulding which shows all the marks possible. Can anyone recommend a spray for cleaning these. I've seen glass cleaner but not sure if it will do the job. At the moment I use a simple duster, but I'm sure there's a better 'proper' method to this.
thanks.

Re: Supplier practices, do they all do it ?

Quick update, so spoke to my rep and the advice is to simply place the order and then ask them to check lengths before paying. They can generally ask the guys in the warehouse to view stock and advise. So now I know the 'quirks of the system' and how to order...hopefully. I order in bulk/boxes anywa...

Re: Supplier practices, do they all do it ?

I can only really go by my own standards to be honest, where I would expect a reasonable level of customer service and also good communication, however seems like a lot of businesses or people don't seem bothered by that these days, real shame.

Supplier practices, do they all do it ?

Hi Fairly new to framing and currently use Arcadia for all my picture frame mouldings. After placing quite a few orders, I've come to realise the process is not as straightforward as anyone with common sense would think. So the order system states each length is 3 metres for the moulding I use, so y...
