shall i sell my keencut?!

Postby red » Sun Jul 23, 2017 7:46 pm

I was recently mooching around a craft fair a while back and saw a stall
selling framed items.i naturally got chatting and got on to what equipment
do you use etc? a morso, a floormounted underpinner and a hand mount cutter
although they owned a keencut they preferred cutting by hand
the mounts were really excellent,made me wonder why I spent
so much on my mount cutter!

Hello Red,

Did you see this topic from April ?

https://www.theframersforum.com/viewtop ... =6&t=15355

Best way to see if you don't need your Keencut is to put it to one side for a week, :idea: and cut all your mounts by hand
Lets us know if you last the week :lol:
I have visited framers in 83 countries - no two are the same.
