If you want to showcase your special photographs or artwork, you can put ’em in a custom frame — but driving the glazing or framing points that hold the backing in the frame can be a challenge. Hammers are too difficult to swing on frame backs, and framing pliers never seem to push the point the way you want. Fletcher’s FrameMaster eases this frustrating task.
The FrameMaster, similar to a staple gun or a manual brad driver, shoots out of the top of the tool instead of the front. This allows you to press the backing down with the FrameMaster and then pin the backing with a framing or glazing point. The user-friendly tool drives the points just far enough to seat them. You can easily remove them with pliers later if you want to change the picture.
The FrameMaster can handle 3/8″ glazing points and 5/8″ framing ponts. The spring-loaded bar that presses on the points also indicates how many points you have left in the tool.
The FrameMaster has a street price of $77, but the amount you save by doing your own framing could easily make up for the cost.
