Picture Framing Equipment Manuals

This is a collection of manuals for equipment used for picture framing. It was started as a result of fellow framer's searching for manuals on the premier picture framing forum, The Grumble .

I would like to expand this page to include manuals for many different pieces of picture framing equipment. If you have a copy of a manual not shown below (in PDF form), PM me on The Grumble, or email me here.

Important............. Many of these PDFs are quite large. Some of these hefty heifers are more than 20MB in size. I would suggest that if you are going to refer to any of these manuals more than once that you download them to your computer using your browser's 'Save' function, especially some of the larger ones.

Seal Pressure Template

Seal Pressure Template ( .8 mb )

Here are some notes from Bill Henry on the Pressure Template.

  • the overall size is approximately 7-1/2 x 15 inches. Folks who would want to use it would have to be able to print it out full size on a tabloid size paper (11 x 17). Scaling down won't work.
  • The printed cut out would need to be mounted on a stiff stock like 1/8" foam board or double thick process board for the template to be useful.
  • Holes in the template and backing would need to be cut out rather precisely.
