Bending board when drymounting anyone ?

I can't believe this is the first time this has been an issue for me but a customer came in last week and left a variety of prints and small posters, minimum size A3 , maximum size A1. All she wanted me to do was drymount them onto MDF board, I said I've never done that before but could drymount ont...

Re: Buying a framing business

On a slightly different note, has anyone made the move from working at home to moving to a high street shop/ business unit ? I know of a few high street framers that have had to leave the high street because of soaring overheads but as someone who has been in business for 6 years, working from home ...

Thanks for pointing that out, my Workshop is next door to my neighbours so anything other than a silent compressor ( I have a Jun-Air silent compressor ) and I might get some complaints :head:

Re: Clay tile baby prints - mounting

Well I had a trip to B&Q yesterday and bought some of that Evostick Serious Stuff, I used this with a couple of strips of double sided foam adhesive, belt and braces :D I left some weights on top of the tiles over night and it seemed to do the trick, here's the finished frame. Thanks for the advice ...

Clay tile baby prints - mounting

I'm making a box frame for some Clay tile baby prints a customer has brought in of her little ones, I was thinking about sticking them onto a backboard using either Hot Glue or Silicon Adhesive ? Has anyone used either before to do this ?

Thanks in advance,

Re: Clay Hand & Foot Prints

Just revived this thread from 2008, that's got to be a record ? :rock:

Well I have some clay tiles with baby handprints to frame but do I use Hot Glue or Silicon Adhesive to attach them ? I think sticking is fine unless anyone tells me they had a bad experience with Hot Glue ....

cheers,

THINKING ABOUT GETTING ... A COLD ROLLER

I used to own one of those desk mounted 24" wide Hotpress cold rollers with a pedal to stop and start, I'm sure it was this that gave me my Hernia a few years ago :sweating: I used to have to deadlift it onto the bench when I needed it because of lack of space ... Now I want one of the wider cold ro...

Well......It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Ev'rywhere you go; Take a look in the five-and-ten, glistening once again With candy canes and silver lanes aglow. ... :giggle:

Fingers crossed I'll be awash with football shirts again this year :D

fLAT HEAD vS PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS ANYONE ?

Come on everyone, a quick straw poll...
Flat head screws or Phillips, what do you use ?

I use flat head but after 25 years of fastening D-rings on the back of frames I'm starting to ask myself why I don't use Phillips screws ...

Genuinely interested,
