  • minor milestone

    Somewhere in this bunch of puzzles, I hit 10,000 pieces cut. I'm not sure if it's OCD or just good old fashioned anal retention that makes me keep track of these sorts of things, but I'm at 10,000+ pieces now (I started cutting puzzles in Jan 08). Thanks for all the great info, ideas, and friendship on the forum over the years.

    Oh, about these puzzles - I volunteer at a church camp for a week every summer. I'm sending a small photo puzzle to each of the kids in my cabin for Christmas. 6 down, 5 to go.

              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.

              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

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...

              I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

              I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

              To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
