Fletcher 8400 Glass and Material Cutter - Put into Action with Custom Mobile Stand

I have put most of the equipment from my big purchase of Framing equipment and supplies into use except for an Oval and Circle Cutter, a Chronomat Mat Cutter, and a Fletcher 8400 Series Glass and Material Cutter. The Oval and Circle Cutter will stay stored until I have a need for it, but not a commonly used piece of equipment.  The Chronomat Mat Cutter is a 48” variety and older. Logan bought either the company or the product and branded as their high-end professional grade Platinum Edge line. I bought a Platinum Edge 850 40” last year and just love it. I’ll keep the Chronomat in case I need the extra length and as a backup and some of the parts are interchangeable which could come in handy one day. The Fletcher 8400 Series Glass and Material Cutter is an older one but like so much framing equipment, age doesn’t really matter, mostly condition.

SecondMoonshot Vision Statement

Exceed customer expectations in Quality, Design and Value. Treat every object being framed as if it were priceless and irreplaceable. Always do the right thing. Carrie asked me “What do you mean by ‘Always do the right thing’?”. I think I mean to make good decisions which always have the customers and employees (when I get one) best interest in mind. Don’t try to defend one’s self if a customer isn’t satisfied, but focus on making it right. Be accountable to your actions and words.

SecondMoonshot Storage/Warehouse Update #6

Things are all pretty much in place from the April acquisition.  These 6 pictures are where I keep moulding, Mat board and other supplies and less used tools. This unit is where I store 2 cars and where all the woodworking, cutting and joining takes place. The VacuSeal had to go into our garage due to power requirements. And last are pics of eBay storage and framing assembly unit.  I made a portable stand for the Fletcher 8400 Series glass and material cutter. John

Custom Picture Framing Portfolio - Volume #6

Here is the sixth volume of framing projects, a continuation of  Volume #5 .  For pricing estimation information, go  HERE . Some customer provided photos of our made-to-order specialty record and comic frames. Decided to reframe the “Corporation” poster. Completely reframed the Maxell Porsche Blown Away (original France) and took it to the next level. Wow. Found this great movie ad on eBay and decided to get creative on the mat. This was some bead art my daughter did recently and framed for her. I picked this Porsche poster up a while back on eBay as it had a vintage 9-1 Targa and will keep it with the car. This is 1 of a set of 3 which I did for a local artist friend. Pretty straight forward framing job I did for a local customer who needed it rush for Christmas. A Jordan Nike poster I framed for a friend. Pleased with outcome. A canvas anime print. This was a framing project I did for Carrie and Steffen of an early Polaroid. Carrie did all the design work and agreed to do a double V
