Re: can a facemounted acrylic be consevation standard

Trouble is the general public don't understand the terminology but are taken in by what sounds good.

A bit like labelling a product along the lines of "Findus Beef Lasagne"

Re: open corners nightmare!!!

You don't say where you are positioning the wedges. Polymer mouldings generally join better if the wedges are positioned towards the inner edge. Which of the pressure pads are you using? The round yellow one seems to work better with this type of profile. Do you bring the pressure pad down so it alm...

Re: Excel spreadsheet

It is not too difficult to create a pricing structure using Excel. For linear values just use the "Sum" function which is just addition e.g for mouldings height plus width and then the "product" (multiplication) function to double those values to give the amount of moulding required. For sheet mater...

Re: Moulding identification

They came to me as well. The supplier of this frame has said it is a discontinued moulding and has no stock. You might be lucky and find someone with some on the shelf.

Give them a call and set up a trade account. You might have to invest a bit if you want some catalogues or you could just use their website to sell from. Prices on their website are retail so you can let your customers browse.

Re: Spring Fair

I think the time of year is key to exhibitors outside of our industry that are at Springfair as they are there to do business for the christmas market.

With volume items and far east production they need the lead time.

Re: silk hankechief

If the edges are not important then use the Newberry method.

Alternatively you may need to persuade your customer to accept some very fine stitches which won't be seen unless they look very closely.

I would stick to my ground and only do a conservation job.

Re: Providing Work Experience

You will probably find you need to be registered with the education authuority who will need to visit and make checks regarding health and safety etc. etc. plus you might need to get a CRB check done which could well be at your own expense.

Re: Cheapo Mountboard for "cutting on" ( on CMC )

I think you might find backing board will blunt your blade quickly. Better off buying some cream core board, cheapest you can find IMHO. I get some 2nds from a supplier and they last a fair while if you use both sides and rotate 180 deg after a while. Unless you cut a lot of large mounts most the we...
