Float mounting tape?

I have been asked to float mount several oil paintings on board (Masonite??), they are not big at around 30x30cms, but I am still unsure at what would be the most secure method pass-through or hedgehog, but more importantly which tape would be strong enough. They are artist originals and I would lik...

Cassese CS200 etc. owners?

I am having a small issue with my CS200, the chevron table with the locking handle has become extremely difficult to move..I virtually force it back and forth. I have looked and cleaned the whole area for debris..all seems fine. I am loathe to use any kind of lubricant unless absolutely required on ...

Re: Fletcher FSC, Bambi compressor & cash register for sale

Hi Simon, interested to see your comment on this bambi, could I ask what compressor you use instead, we are in the market for a new compressor..I’ve spoken to a couple of companies and there knowledge on a framers needs can be a little limited..

Re: Trimming down a print

Really interesting discussion and totally agree, but the looks I’ve got when I say we don’t trim!!, but just to clarify, when you are saying don’t stick down, do you mean mounting or not even archival tee hinging? Sweaty palms here too :sweating:

Re: Backing tape.

Funnily David, I have been mostly using sekisui and ordered some gummed tape just last week as I feel it will be the better option going forward (fairly new to framing). I have found sekisui great to use, it sticks well to itself, burnishing thoroughly is vital..but what I wanted to say before you o...

Re: Framers pins.

I use sekisui at present and on the whole am happy, but I’m always looking to improve and have read that water activated (gummed?) tape is better.

Re: Framers pins.

Thanks David.

Yes thoroughly burnished. I summised that it may have been due to the MDF backboard (retained as it held info) or the extreme temperatures.

Re: Framers pins.

Thank you, really appreciated & believe it or not quite inspiring, just to look a little differently at the options. There’s plenty of room left in the frame but I think I am being a little cautious..as when I looked at a reframe that I had done last week, the tape (sekisui - from Simons) had bubble...

Framers pins.

Quick question, what is best to use to fix a painting on mdf board (fairly heavy) into a frame? Fletcher framers pins seem a little lightweight?

Re: Which underpinner?

I think it would be interesting to know if there’s a consensus on Underpinners, so even you don’t want to say your experience, people could just state their machine. I’m finding that too Ed’, twists mostly, but just yesterday I needed to make two frames exactly the same, so I thought it would make s...

Which underpinner?

I am looking into the possibility of buying a new underpinner (possibly Cassese CS20 if anyone has specific experience with one) and was looking for advice/opinion and maybe a bit of a poll on your ‘weapon of choice’? I am thinking around £2000 for a new or second hand machine. We curently use the C...
