    Very nice work. Thanks so much for sharing this with the group. I especially like the second version and how well it worked with the UV cured adhesive. That's not a technology I've used and I now...

    Hi Alan,

    Going from a Smith's Little Torch to a larger but cooler flame will take some practice, but is possible. The concentrated heat of a small Oxygen/Acetylene torch can be hard to control,...

    That's an old-school Craftsman set that probably came from a garage sale or one of the tool boxes I've bought over the years. I hate to say it, but most of my tools are not things that can be sourced...

    I know this isn't quite the same, but here is the kit I assembled before going to Juneau for three weeks in April 2015 to train the crew at the Alaska State Museum in mountmaking. As I wasn't sure...

    I'd recommend you check out Conservator Gwen Spicer's presentation on magnets at the recent Mountmaking Forum in Cleveland. It has a lot of great information on magnets and their use and may give...
  8. Interesting products from other realms.

    For a long time, I've wanted to start a discussion to share all the cool stuff we've come across to help us in this weird profession. Today, an ad came to me that made me want to make this happen....

    I heartily concur with Ashley that a conservator should be consulted. Although it may seem expensive to do so, the cost of correcting a mistake and repairing damage will be far greater. Determining...

    Hi Chris,
    It's great to see that you've met this great group of pros. PACCIN is a fine resource and is just taking off in developing new networks for all of us that work in the museums. I'm sure...

    We used magnets in a little different way. We would embed the magnets in the surface that the art was to be mounted to, and would put a strip of felt over them all to provide a buffering surface and...

    Products such as Museum/dental wax and Museum Putty can be useful and expedient to stabilize objects during installation, but I feel they each have liabilities that need to be considered. I feel that...

    Hi Natalie,

    The best anchor I have found for use in drywall is what has come to be known as a zip-toggle or Snaptoggle. They are easy to use, are rated to hold up a lot of weight, and best of all,...

    We shaped and hacked-up a lot of cheap urethane mannequins for Fosshape use. I'm afraid I never had the time to focus on it in the way Jim was able with this example. I have wished for a robust...

    I found that Fosshape was a material that had "just enough" strength to do the job, but you really had to look at where the weight and stress was going to land and design with that in mind. One layer...

    I just did a quick pass through this article and it is a truly amazing piece of work. Kudos to Vince Avalos for bringing all this information together and putting it into an understandable form. It...

    Now I get what you've got there. Very Nice. I still think repairing them might be the best route. Of you can drive the axle out, you should be able to drive the bearings out of the rollers and...

    I feel that two things may be happening. Especially since this effect was noticed on the early mounts done in the patination process, I'd venture to say that the initial surface prep before immersion...

    What are the rollers off of? Are they from a pallet jack or other rolling stock? It also looks like you might be able to replace the bearings if you can get it apart. Is it bigger hammer time?

    Hi,

    I'm assuming this query is coming from the new Alaska State Museum project that I've been a part of, so I'll answer based on what I know about your process.

    To start with, is this a new...

    I've never heard of ozonated water or the Tersano Lotus system before. They sure have blanketed the web with positive text but it would be interesting to see what conservation testing such as an Oddy...

    Wow Jim, that's a great little setup. Apart from the obvious thought of foam tape around the edge to help with leaks, I can't think of anything I'd want to modify. I think it's mostly a matter of...

    We used Uline's color coded tape and found it released well. See if this orange looks like the one you've been seeing. Good luck.

    Hi Ralph,

    I did a lot of work when I was working in Santa Fe on making mannequins from a shrinkable felt called Fosshape. If you search on Fosshape, you should find a link to my Flickr album of...
