CWH Hangers now on trend!

Our popular CWH Square Sawtooth Hangers are switching to an on-trend silver nickel finish.

This move away from a yellow zinc finish reflects the fact that sales of silver finish frame hardware now outstrip the more traditional brass.

This change will happen as stock rotates.

Aalto moulding range - changes

Our manufacturer of this popular new range has been having trouble buying sustainably sourced Ramin so it’s going to be made on premium quality Ayous instead. This will mean:
• Good availability guaranteed
• The moulding will be easier to work with
• Prices are reduced by over 40%!!

A great choice for Scandi modern interiors and a must have for your display wall.

Have you got a Telum pad?

WHAT IS IT? A ‘Diamond Pad’ for smoothing the edges of glass.

WHY USE IT?
  • Smooth edges on glass are essential for comfortable handling and safety
  • To sand off awkward nibs
  • Industrial diamond dust is ‘plated’ onto the arrowhead surface pattern – highly abrasive and hard wearing for a longer life
TIP: USE IN A CIRCULAR MOTION WHEN WORKING ALONG A CUT EDGE. WETTING THE PAD ALSO HELPS!

SuperStick DMT Dry Mounting Tissue

For dry mounting, using a hot glass press or heated roller laminator…

SuperStick uses an environmentally friendly thermoplastic coating on both faces of the porous paper base. The adhesive is applied by a hot melt process, a bit like a hot glue gun. Almost all other DMT has the adhesive applied by being dissolved in solvent, of which most, but not all, is recovered.
  • Porous paper base is pH7 and bond is permanent
  • Environmentally friendly with no odour

2CV TEAM LION CAR BEING REBUILT FOR 2019 SEASON

The 2CV Team LION car took quite a lot of damage in the 24 Hour Race back in August. It made two long stops for body repairs totaling nearly two hours but still managed to come home 5th.

The body shell and chassis needed a huge amount of careful work, mainly by welding expert Joanna Cawser, and it’s now nearly ready for the paint shop. Then it all has to be re-assembled for the first races in March.
