  • This Memorial Day

    Today while you're enjoying your picnics please take a brief pause and thank all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we could enjoy our picnics and parades or whatever it is that you do today. My family was relatively fortunate in that my 3 brothers and I were all unscathed. My grandmother was not as fortunate as she was the first gold star mother of my hometown in WWI.

      I would like to remember my brother Samuel S. Walker, USAF, A-10 pilot. Lost his life in defense of his country.

      Also, all the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the rest of us to enjoy the freedom we have.

        Saw this on another forum today and wanted to share:

        Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American G.I. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom. Thank them both today.

              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

              None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
              The bags seem easier on the surface.
              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
