What are these items used for?

Logan 350-1 Compact Elite Mount Cutter – This mount cutter can be used to cut mounts for picture frames, as well as cutting down backing board. It will cut mounts up to 81cm (external mount size).

Nobex Promaster saw and replacement blade – The Nobex mitre saw is perfect for the “at home” workshop where it can be easily moved around due to its light weight. Unlike electric saw models this hand saw does not have a motor, this means that the saw will not send sawdust flying through the air, instead, the dust will just accumulate under the saw and can easily be hoovered up. This saw can cut at a variety of angles, and also comes with an arm clamp and extension measuring arm.

Logan Studio Joiner –  The Studio joiner is a small table top joiner which allows you to easily join frame corners together. It comes with 200 v-nails

Toyo Glass Cutter – Used for cutting 1, 2 or 3mm glass for picture frames. Simply score your cut line and snap with your finger tips.

Logan 40″ Adapt-a-Rule – This rule can be used at multiple stages in the framing process and is an essential for the majority of tasks. It can be used for all general measuring on one side and the back of the rule has a flat straight edge, allowing you to use it as a guide when cutting glass. (Size: 40″ or 101cm)

Tab gun & Tab Gun Tabs – The tab gun is designed to insert small pointed tabs into the rebate of the frame, this then holds all of the contents of the frame in place.
