PRODUCT NEWS
Hoffman Frame Moulding Routing & Joining System
 
 
Love harder wood mouldings, but hate joining them?

Getting a neat, tight join on harder wood mouldings using an underpinner can be a struggle, even in the hands of a skilled operator.  The timber displaced by the v-nail is not easily compressed, causing the join to splay open, particularly if v-nails are stacked.
 
The Hoffmann System is a modern take on the classic dovetail joint and works by routing out a slot in the back of the mitre.  The two pieces are brought together and a moulded Dovetail Key is inserted into the routed slot to give an extremely tight and secure mitre joint.
To compliment the large range of W1 and W2 Keys, we will shortly stock new W0 sizes - perfect for mouldings from just 10mm wide.  Keep an eye on lionpic.co.uk for details. For more info see PUB012 or call us on 0121 773 1230.
