Careful what you wish for ... :Slap: I work alone from home so don't have the responsibilities a...

Anyone still use one of these ??

Just found this in the loft, bought it years ago when I was a newbie to framing, it's really for fixing glass in window frames but I used to use it to fit backboards in, I think I might start using it again once I've oiled it. It uses the 13mm triangles I think ( have looked in LION catalogue) no jo...

Re: SUMUP Credit Card Reader

I use iZettle and am very happy with it. The fees are 1.75% of the transaction and no monthly fees. The card reader sits on a very neat stand which was included and I actually get a lot of customers commenting on how stylish this setup looks. Out of interest, do you have to pay a different rate for...

SUMUP Credit Card Reader

About this time every year, I give some serious thought to getting a Card Reader, the latest one I'm considering is SumUp, no monthly charges and a fixed fee of 1.69% on all cards, apparently ....

Is anyone using SumUp in anger and are you happy with it ?
Thanks in advance,

Gold Gilt frame - how to clean ?

I've been asked by a customer who has an ornate Gold gilt frame with a mirror, she wants to clean it, the best I could suggest was some light brushing with an old toothbrush and some cotton wool. Is there a better way which won't be too abbrasive ?
Thanks in advance,
