A frame every 5 seconds using 8 stations.
All frames are glued and nailed.

And it would be helpful if the foundation manufacturers didn't skimp on the sizing - a nightmare when both sides don't fit in the frame!!!:banghead:

None, although I have my eye on one ( Just don't tell Dusty ;) )
How does it get the foundation to just fall in so easily? Ours get caught on splinters etc. Nice bit of kit though...how much do they go for on ebay? ;) lol

i would love the all signing and dancing automatic frame builder, but would have to built it my self,

as for the new frame design for the holder, i see another video on the way

he first showed the old style of frame jig holder which i tried to make and use and gave up with the newer version seems easier to work with

That machine would just ruin a nice evening in the shed with a few frames, tacks and beers.

That machine is fantastic, almost mesmerising to watch.

But I could employ 20 TCN's for a fraction of the price of that machine:svengo:
