Frame assembly kit which can be used to assemble any mitred, 4 sided frame.
For any sized picture frame moulding, up to 75mm wide,
Included in the kit:
- NEW metal mitre clamp for accurate tight mitres
- Magnetic tipped v-nail driver (use your own hammer)
- NEW spirit level for levelling frames on the wall
- 165 piece hardware kit for finishing & hanging the frame
The heart of this kit is the mitre clamp, which has been upgrade for 2010 to a metal construction. The clamp has quick action jaws which securely hold the 2 mitred pieces during pinning. The clamp and frame is then flipped over to allow access to the underside of the frame. Once hung on the wall the underside will never be seen. A wedge is then fitted to the retracting end of the driver. It is magnetic to make things simple. Then use a hammer (not supplied) to tap the wedge into the moulding underside.
A hardware kit is also included to help finish off the frame and prepare for hanging.
Hardware kit contains:
- 5 metres of picture hanging wire
- 100 x 10mm Wedges
- 8 screw rings
- 8 screw eyes
- 20 wall nails
- 10 brass screws
- 8 D-rings
- 6 large picture hooks
- 4 small picture hooks.
A great value kit for making your own frames.
We always recommend that wood glue should also be used in every corner. The wedge is an instant fixing and allows the frame to be safely moved around straight after joining it. Once set, the glue gives the frame the stability which will last for many years.
