Re: Hi

Welcome Gary - I notice you're in Newmarket. Wessex Pictures are running one of their roadshows at Newmarket racecourse on 24th September. It's a free to attend drop in event and you'll be able to meet a number of moulding suppliers, equipment firms and also lots of other framers. If you need any ad...

Re: Super Jumbo Mountboard

Mark -
Have a look at Rising mountboard from Centrado, Looks like they do a 72 inch by 48 inch board which should be big enough for you. I think you can buy single boards from them but might be an issue with something this big.

Re: Glass for larger frames

Martin - Just to add to the above, I went to a talk at Wessex last year given by David Palmer, a specialist in glass and glazing, and he confirmed that in his opinion 2mm glass should never exceed 1 metre square, and that you should also be careful with narrow frames up to and exceeding 1 metre long...

Re: Cutting Oval Glass

Could I suggest you save yourself the trouble and get Wessex to cut it for you? They would be my first port of call and they would be able to deliver to you via their van service. Might take a bit longer to get hold of but it might save your sanity (and your glass stock)

Re: advice for cleaning a painted screen

I'm with Prospero on this one - leave well alone. If once you've helped to 'steer the customer in the right direction' it all goes well they'll be forever grateful and you'll be a hero. If it all goes wrong, the blame may well be heading in your direction, despite what they may say now. The only oth...

Re: Reducing Plastic In A Framing Business.

Just starting to get some kick back from customers about bubble wrap, although I've yet to find a suitable alternative. I find corrugated paper too abrasive, so am planning to go for the green recycled bubble wrap once current stocks are gone. Because I run a home visit service, I have a responsibil...

Re: Bonding 2 sheets of mountboard together.

Hi Justin - Never done this but seems like a lot of work and I think I'd be worried about the effectiveness of the bond and the two boards coming apart. Also, the join would surely show on the bevel? I normally just buy boards by the single sheet from Wessex on the odd occasion I need a thicker boar...

Re: Mould / Contamination on Print

As has already been said many times on this forum, we're not magicians and can only work with what we're presented with. The pad is a fairly low risk way of making some minor improvements (by the way it's only £4.01 + VAT in Lion's catalogue - stock number 1178) but you have to be very gentle and I'...

Re: Cassese underpinner model

Hi Fran -
Just realised that you're quite close to me - if you want to try my machine you're more than welcome to call in sometime and give it a try - there's always some waste moulding kicking around!
Best wishes

Re: Cassese underpinner model

Hi Fran - This is a Cassese 299M Ultra (with lock button) - the manual is still available on the Cassese website. They're no longer made - nearest equivalent would be the Cassese 200. I bought one second hand six months ago from TGS Repairs in Basildon, who do onsite servicing for all equipment. It'...

Re: Framers Workshops at the Guild Weekend

I'd like to endorse Justin's comments and thank all members of the FATG for laying on an excellent and informative day. I've never been in doubt that supporting the Guild through membership was worth the money I pay for it and this day simply reinforced my view. Although I've been framing for quite ...

Re: Cassese cartridge wedge not firing

I was given a very good tip a while ago in relation to Cassese cartridges which you may find helpful. Keep the white or yellow 'pushers' from inside the cartridges when you've used a cartridge, and insert an extra one into a part used cartridge. This helps to maintain forward pressure on the wedges ...

Re: Football display cases

Apologies for the delay in replying and thank you for your advice and help. I've now spoken to Barry at Dreamkeepers who seems very helpful and appears to gave exactly what I need at a reasonable price. Crucially he can supply the cover on its own which allows a framer to make a custom made base. Th...

Football display cases

Good morning everyone - I have a signed football to frame and my client would like to have this presented in an acrylic box. I'm then going to make a plinth for the box and following a previous suggestion from Mark Lacey, I'm going to insert a mirror in the base so that all the signatures show up we...
