KIT WITH ALL THE UPGRADES.

Home Framer Kit #3 features the Mat Master 860B mat cutter which is bigger, faster, and easier.

#14631 Home Framer Kit #3-1060B

40" Inch Mat Cutter Plus Frame Making Tools.
This is a kit we created especially for our friends in the US. The Mat Master 1060B is a large 40"+ inch mat cutter and will take a full sheet of mat board longways for either cutting down to size or creating a mat from a full size sheet. We know there are plenty of cutters on the market this size, but just compare the features in the 1060B with every other brand...great value for money! For joining the frames the BenchMaster II, combined with the PushMaster is still the best joiner on the market. With lots of options to add as you go along to make the projects easier and more enjoyable. The Proman saw comes from Sweden, and we know it is the best..cut the frames accurately with a good quality saw and the help of the measuring system and you will never need a sander!!...sanders add another step in the process, makes measuring the lengths much more difficult, and they are an expensive additional tool.

#14640 The Professional Workshop

Everything you will need to start a small home based business, or just be really well equipped!

The Mitre Trimmer adds that extra expertise and gives you the fine cut mitre necessary for larger and more ornate mouldings. Most professional framers use a guillotine to cut their mitres, but the trimmer does a fine job for the home/small business framer. For the Mat cutting you may wish to substitute the Mat Master 1060B or 1260B to give you a greater range of sizes which can be cut with the longer length mat cutters. Add to this package a Tape Accessory pack and the Mat Cutting Accessory pack, and you are ready to get started. Only leaves the training. Well that's where FrameCo can really help. Remember we designed all these tools, and we know how to make them work in your hands and your situation. Our best advice is to get started then ASK US!!
