My sincere apologies for suggesting a solution that you consider too complicated.It amazes me how framers often try to make simple tasks as complicated as possible
Hi, Pete. Thanks for clarifying, and that sounds like a great use of magnets! If you have photos and can find the time, would love to see pics in the frame design section. And please keep sharing here. We're glad to have you around.....this method was a solution I used recently to retain a very old tin (1900) in a box frame along with a set of WW1 medals....
I would really like to see the photos.Although I have a copious amounts of photo's of this job and all other work carried out since returning to framing, I have not yet mastered the art of up loading photo's. When I do I will be delighted to show you the frame design.
Didn't mean to single you out, Peter. Indeed, magnets are a great solution for certain mounting situations in framing. However, I wouldn't use them for mounting nameplates. Actually, it was the thumbtack idea that sounded a bit "overkill" to me.However, once again I hope I will be forgiven for my too complicated reply and I promise to keep it simple in future.
