Re: Glue for Polycore moulding

I know Toolstation do superglue in various viscosity's they also do the superglue that stays open a bit longer than standard, That is what I use with Polcore.

Re: Keencut Ultimat - Original vs Gold vs Futura

Go for the Futura I had one before I upgraded to a Valiani CMC and it used to work fantastic admittedly it was a bit of a learning curve and tweaking to get it just right. I would almost go so far to say it does a nicer cut than the CMC. I found the gold edge blades from Lion worked best.

Re: Tape free art mounting

Personally I would politely decline this job as something will go wrong! I have taken on things out of my comfort zone and had sleepless nights turning over different scenarios in my head! Practice on something similar until you are confident in the method to use.

Re: Ricky - Barnard Castle Frames

This is such tragic news just read his casual message that said he hoped he just had the Flu. My sincerest thoughts go out to his family who although I never personally knew him sounded like a truly nice person.

Epsom scanner V700 to V850 model

I am looking to get a Epson scanner if anyone on here has one they would consider selling I am asking as it would seem a lot of people buy them for a project and then don’t really have much use for them
Many Thanks

We use the following https://www.pictureframesandmounts.co.u ... re-frames/

Re: Glass cleaner

I am currently using this, Seems ok so far and I use PEL glass clothes which are exceptionally good.
I use Wessex Opti bright for Tru vue etc.
I used to use the Wessex Blue glass cleaner that worked very well but didn’t like the blue residue it could splatter around sometimes

Re: How long would computer mountcutter blades normally last?

Sorry can’t give the answer to your question but think you have probably answered it yourself.
I think it would be a good idea if the software recorded the distance you actually cut allowing for the materials selected then you could base your decisions on that.
