  • 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!

                              I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                              I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                              If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                              After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                              I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                              Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                              Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

                              Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!
