Yes..as long as it isn't very heavy.Framing a 9" plate with some curve to it in a shadow box. Do they make a clear plate holder like the things you use for coins, etc?
Thanks I was drawing a blank. Ive used Mighty Mounts for other objects, this is the first Plate request.
I agree, Rick.Be careful. Some people have reported that the plastic used to make those does not age well, and may experience crazing and eventual failure. If you do use them, I would recommend being sure to use UV filtering glass to reduce UV exposure to the plastic mounts, even if the plate itself might not seem to need it.
Yes, polycarbonate is a very strong material, but over time it can be weakened by exposure to light. Blocking ultraviolet certainly would help, but visible light is harmful, as well - it just takes longer.For what it's worth in the Mighty Mounts description, they say "it is very strong" so maybe they have improved their mounts over the years.
Neil, can you share any photos, or videos of how you make mounts with the Laser Cutter?Good luck with your
I agree, Rick.
That's why I mentioned the weight factor.
The UV glass suggestion is a good one especially since the frame will be pretty small and the UV glass will just be a few dollars more on that job.

I haven't used Mighty Mounts for many years.
We have a laser cutter and we make our own mounts, so it's hard to say what they are like now.
