  • How do you secure photos to a picture frame

    Hi all!
    i usually make some little turnbuttons for a frame or two that i have to do, but now i am doing 80 4x6 picture frames for a wedding and the idea of doing 160 of those little things does not like me very much,

    i wonder if any of you have any idea of how to secure those, here im my city there is no place i can buy the already made ones, so my options are or being inventive or doing those pieces.

    thanks

      Buy yourself one of these
      Framing Tools: Dual Drive Elite
      It is about $40 but I bought mine at Micheals with a 40%coupon. It is worth every penny
      I bought the bendable points with it.

        Mail to Honduras? not many stores do that, and those frames are for next week.
        and Rolf, thats a good tool to have, but the frames are to be sent as a gift so people can put their own photos there, thats the problem, they can not be permanent.
        but you got me thinking on buying on of those

              Nayo even though they are permanent the points are flexible and can be bent many times.
              They have both types rigid and bendable

                I just received an award at work that was a picture frame. They used four magnets to attach the back. I haven't tried this yet for a scroll saw project, but I thought that it was a cool idea. Maybe it could help your project.

                  Curious Tango ! How do you use a magnet on a wood project? Or did I miss something?

                    Might use a forstner bit and drop a round magnet it the back of the frame and likewise for the backer board. You would be relying on the strength of the magnets to hold the frame up. I've wondered about trying mini-magnets on a box. I think I might have better success there than trying to put a hinge on.

                      that will be cool, i mean the magnets, but i think i will be doing the turnbutons myself, have no other choice.

                        Perk - I haven't tried it yet. The frame that I received had one magnet recessed into the back of the frame and the other part of the magnet was glued to the backer broad. I think that Sawdust King has a great idea on using a forstner bit to recess the magnet.

                          turnbuttons !

                          no wonder I could never find them, I called them "hold the picture in the frame thingys"

                          nickel apiece, bet you couldn't make them for that

                          good luck with the project!

                              Hi ibber - LOL!

                              I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

                              I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                              Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

                              Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
