                       This joints framers simply and accurately using underpinner
                       wedges. The quick adjust corner clamp takes moulding up to
                       60mm. The mitred mouldings are laid into this and ten it is

                       T108B - Clamp

                       Logan Pro-Joiner

                       This is a robustly constructed machine. Like the larger
                       professional models wedges are driven into the moulding from
                       the underside. Wedges are place individually onto a unique V
                       nail block and are held in place by patented alignment pins.
                       There are two of these blocks which can be adjusted using the
                       nail spacing gauge. This not only takes the guess work out of
                       deciding where the nails should be inserted but also means that
                       two wedges can be driven into the moulding at the same time.
                       The moulding is held in a secure clamp which is quickly
                       adjusted. The lever/press mechanism is fully adjustable to take
                       account of a wide variety of profile shape. The machine can be
                       used on moulding up to 60mm wide

engineering mechanism makes the clamp quick and easy to use. A unique feature of
the Strap Clamp is that each corner has detachable Corner Wings which prevent the
corner piece from slipping off the frame corner whilst clamping. It is important that
the corners of the frame you intend to join be held firmly together before V-Nailing.
The pressure of the V-Nail entering the base of the moulding can force the joint to
open if the frame is not held securely. Glue on all the joints is also recommended for
large frames. The band is spring steel with flexible plastic corners so that the outside
edge of the frame will not be damaged. The Strap Clamp also has the advantage
that you can see the corners all together before V-Nailing and that there is no limit to
the width of the molding which can be joined. Suitable for joining 4,6,8 and 10 sided
picture frames.

                                     Mitre Cutting Guillotines

Hansen Mitre Guillotine

Made in Denmark to high technical standards, these machines are very reliable and long lasting- getting even better
with use. The cutting head is moved in and out using a lever. This allows you to cut the moulding in steps.
As the blades cut into the wood or plastic, they crush it. When the pressure is removed the material springs back very
slightly out of line. So multiple cuts help achieve perfect joins. The last cut should be water thin.

                                        Gallery Hanging System

This hanging system is suitable for use in galleries as well as offices and homes – particularly in places where it is
difficult to attach anything to the wall or where pictures may have too be moved relatively frequently.

The basis of the system is lengths of Perlon flexible suspenders or stainless steel cable depending on your choice.

The perlon is very strong translucent and inconspicuous and can take a maximum weight of 20kg and comes in 2 meter
lengths ( We can supply other lengths - please enquire). At one end there is a fitted adaptor that slides into the new
click gallery rail (Silver or white)

The system is completed by hooks which fit onto the Perlon or steel cable. There are 8 types of hooks to choose from
4kg, 7kg, 12kg and 16kg

As rails may not or cannot be used in all rooms, Bear And Bug also has hanging solutions to hang
decorations in a sound and stylish way on, for example, partition walls.

Goldfinger Past Wax

Past wax in a choice of metallic tones. Used it to fill
corners by taking a little on the end of a finger and wiping it
onto the moulding. Can also be used as gilding medium in
its own right, but it helps if you prepare a toning surface
first, using suitable coloured paint

The Invisible answer to ugly plate wires. No clips or hooks. The Disc sticks to the back of the plate, holds it flat and secure against the
wall and cannot be seen. Safety Assured - The Disc gives a permanent adhesion of great strength to a glazed or an unglazed surface.
A fixing that will not "age - harden" or deteriorate with time.

It is unaffected by any normal household extremes of temperature or humidity, Suitable for all sizes of plates and plaques. Discs are
available in five sizes. EASY TO USE: First clean the plate, (even if the plate is new, as surface contamination may inhibit adhesion).
Wet the adhesive side of the disc and slowly agitate with your finger to activate the glue. When the glue becomes "tacky" apply the
disc to the back of the plate (ensure the hook is in the correct position for plate design). Press down firmly. Leave to dry overnight
before thoroughly testing strength of adhesion. Hang your plate on wall and admire! The Disc removes completely in warm water and
will not remove back stamps, glazes, or any other markings.

The following describes some of the potential uses of the Disc that customers have developed over the last 30 years, including tips
from the manufacturer of what and what not to do! All fired materials such as unglazed backs of wall tiles, terracotta, etc. Note: Plaster
of Paris is not that strong in its own right and may give way under its own weight, so even though the Disc sticks well we don't
recommend it be used. China and Porcelain Bowls These cannot be displayed by traditional wires but the 3D effect obtained by
hanging bowls using the Disc is quite stunning.

The transparency of glass items does not generally lend itself to display by Discs but some smoky, opaque, milk glass objects look

Copper, Brass and Silver Plates
Other metals may be OK but each needs to be checked by the customer. Weight is the important criteria as the diameter guide on the
header card is for china and porcelain. The weight limits are very conservative and are based on the strength and integrity of the cloth

and Dee-Rings and not the bond strength between the glue and the surface it is stuck to. Two Discs connected by strong cord or wire
may be used if heavier objects are to be displayed. (This same "picture hanging" type of approach may be adopted for hanging
awkward shaped items or orientation sensitive items).

In the case of metals any oxide formation should be removed first with a proprietary cleaner and then cleaned with neat detergent and
rinsed in clean water.

Some people hang mirrors but much depends on the "silvering" materials that are used on the back of the mirror glass. We cannot
guarantee success. We only suggest they try it and see if it works on the mirror at their own risk.

Unvarnished wooden articles and hardboard backed pictures

The Discs will stick to some varnishes but not to others (the same applies to paint). We recommend customers try it first and if it won't
stick to the varnish then remove it locally. The water soluble glue will not stick to vegetable oils. Linseed is one, so anything that has
been "oiled" will reject the glue.

Note: Some manufacturers paint the back of plates on the top of the glaze or fired surfaces. We recommend that paint be removed
locally on glass or porcelain etc, as the bond between the paint and the plate is often not good enough to suspend the weight of the

Tool Balancer

As we have said many times – guns designed to fire brads, flexipoints or staples usually give good service unless they are dropped.
We now have this tool balancer which is designed to take small tools. Adjustable tension allows for adjustment according to the weight
of the tool on which it is being used. This allows you to arrange matters so that the tool is raised and „parked‟ over the bench. Then it is
easy to pull down when needed after which it is automatically returned to it‟s „parked‟ position.

Mirror Plates

Slotted mirror plates allow a screw head to fit through and then lock into the plate. This means that the frame
can be hung flat against the wall and can be readily removed if required. The trouble is that the plates
protrude above the edge of the frame.

Reverse Slotted
The slotted hole is inverted on this hanger. This means you can fit this plate in pairs to the top inside edge of
the frame pointing down. The picture is hung over two screw heads on the wall providing a hidden fixing. This
works best if the back of the picture is recessed 5mm or more below the frame rim. This is one of the best
ways of hanging something absolutely flat against a wall.

Picture Fame Cord

You should not use cord made from natural fibres to hang pictures. Even if it is initially strong enough it is liable to not
and break over time. To allow for shock loading the item being hung should not be more than 25% of the breaking strain
show. But cord is only part of the story. Firstly make sure that it is securely knotted. Then always select anchors (D ring,
eyes etc) that are more than adequate for the job. If in doubt always use a stronger hanger. It does your reputation no
good at all to hear from a customer that a prized picture has fallen and smashed to bits on the grand piano or whatever
– and the difference is cost is small. Sold by the kilo.

     Developed by pilot, these amazing pens have a unique wide flat blade knib which feeds ink from the interchangeable
     cartridge in the handle very smoothly to create a broad line.

     Parallel Pens can also be used to create italic style handwriting and for freehand illustration.

     For framers, they let you rule a wide line on a mount accurately and easily. This modernizes a technique popular on mounts
     for Victorian water-colours. You can now apply a coloured line, subtle or bright, on modern mounted and framed art. This
     opens up a new range of creative possibilities. Also ideal for calligraphy. Pilot Parellel Pens come in four widths, each colour
     coded on the nib and cap.

     F6255 – 1,3mm line
     F6256 – 2,2mm line
     F6257 – 3,6mm line
     F6258 – 5,7mm line
