Re: Splines, who uses them

Rafe, If you have a table saw, I would recommend making one of two jigs. One that rides on the fence with two \ / pieces of wood glued to it at 45 degrees to allow the corner of the frame point directly down towards the table. The other is a 45 degree 'sled' that actually sits on the table and doesn...

Re: Tax on business startup

Thanks GeoSpectrum.

I knew about the 100% AIA. I didn't realise it continued after the first year at 18%

Thanks for the link.

Re: Tax on business startup

Thanks for the link Rainbow. I've read through those pages. The question I'm asking is somewhat slightly more specific. GeoSpectrum, I am aware of the different legal structures and how one may be more beneficial than the other, but at the moment, that's not what I'm trying to find out. My question ...

Re: Tax on business startup

Thanks for the replies so far guys. I have been keeping as many receipts as possible, both paper and email invoices and I'm going to put these all on a spreadsheet so when I do see an accountant, I can give this to them. I just wanted to learn a little bit before I got to that stage so I can do some...

Tax on business startup

Hi guys/gals, First of all, I'm not asking for financial advice that I'm going to act upon, I would just like some info from people who've been there before. My question is about capital allowances for new businesses. More specifically, what you can call a 'capital expense' and how you can use these...

Re: Splines, who uses them

I use splines almost every time in my hardwood frames. If its supposed to be part of the design, ill use a contrasting wood. If not, ill use the same species. If you're going to do splines, a table saw is a perfect way to do them if you make a jig. You'll also want a flat bottom grooving blade other...

Re: Suggested suppliers non trade

Hi Justin, I also agree about the protection of the artwork being framed along with training on the subject. I've been researching how to make sure that whatever I frame is protected as well as the correct way to construct the package to be framed. Once the Covid stuff calms down a bit, I will look ...

Re: Wanted - Morso

Hi Iain,

Is the price at all flexible?

Its just I've seen quite a few go on this forum for a bit less and some have also included a spare set of blades. Obviously I'd like to get a spare set so I can keep a set on the machine while the spares are off for sharpening.

Cheers,
Tom

Re: Wanted - Morso

Hi Iain,

I'm interested in the Morso. Do you have any more info on it? Are there any spare blades included with the machine? Is it in fine working order and do the blades on the machine cut well or are they due a sharpen?

Thanks.

Re: Wanted - Morso

Guys,

Just for my info,

How much do you most often see Morso model Fs going for? So I know what sort of range in prices I should be expecting to pay.

Thanks.

Re: Suggested suppliers non trade

First of all, thank you for sharing that Mark. And thanks for the link jaybee. Mark, I'll be honest... I have no idea how to actually officially 'start'. I have, up to now, only made and sold a handful of frames to people who weren't friends or family. And even those people where people who were fri...

Re: Suggested suppliers non trade

I'll be sure to check out the forum for some info, Mark. Also, I agree with and applaud the fact that you've done what you've done because of the satisfaction you've got from it. I've been told that the place I work is planned to shut at the end of next year and we're all being made redundant. This ...

Thanks Mark,

I will be sure to ask. Do you have any links or info you'd be able to share about hand finishing in the meantime so I can do some research in the meantime?

Cheers.

Wanted - Morso

Hi guys, After making picture frames for the past year using my table saw and a home made jig, I think I'd finally like to sink some cash into a Morso. I've looked at a few on ebay and have shown some interest in some but not bit the bullet as of yet. If you're selling, or know if one that is in goo...

Re: Suggested suppliers non trade

Thanks for the replies. It would be wonderful if I'd be able to run this as a small business from home, and that is eventually my goal. I have always wanted to run a small business and I have two other family members who do the same (very unrelated to framing). Like you say, Gesso, at the moment, I ...

Hi guys, Could anyone recommend a supplier for the necessaries such as mount board, undermount, glass, backing etc?
