As Mitreman points out a flat bed press e.g. Ademco would do the job "in bites". Makes you wonder why we all sold our Ademcos for a few hundred quid and invested (?) thousands in those new fangled hot glass vacuum presses!

Snag is most framers (like us) go for the HGP 260 (working area 890 x 1195mm) as it can be plugged into a 13 Am...

Don't bother with the Eco blades. By the time you have wasted a few sheets of mount board because they have lost their edge sooner you will wish you spent the extra few quid.

2nd hand Morso

If you are buying a Morso 2nd hand check it has genuine Morso blades. They will be stamped with the makers name and the month and year of manufacture e.g. 06/07 (both should match) Check there is some "meat" left on the blades as each sharpening takes a little away each time. A new set of blades wil...

Valiani support from Simons

Just been in contact with Joe at Simons regarding a small problem with our CMC (see my other post). He could not have been more helpful and made telephone calls to Italy then got back to us promptly with a solution.

We are impressed so far!

Try speaking to Peter Stanlick owner of Framers Equipment in Northampton. He will probably have the part you want plus will come out and do the repair providing you don't mind paying for his time. If you want to save some money and don't mind the drive you could take it to him.

We too started off in a garage but a double which gives that bit more room. I would strongly recommend you do not keep mount board in the garage as there is a great variaton in temperature and humidity throughout the year. If you can find the space to store it indoors then that will be best. We acqu...

Apertures not cuuting correctly on Valiani mat pro 120

Hi All We are having a problem with our Valiani Mat Pro 120. When cutting a mount with an outside cut or cutting a mount without an outside cut the aperture does not drop out i.e. there is an under cut. However if we cut a mount with an outside cut then the aperture undercuts but the outside cut is ...

We cut mounts for 50 cards on our Valiani CMC. First of all we do a practice on a scrap piece of mount board to get the aperture size just right as we have found some sets of cards to be slightly different sizes to others. Having tried the pre cut mounts we find this much more satisfactory. Customer...
