    This entry was posted in Behind the Scenes J A Milton News on March 9 2015 by jamilton How to use our decorative nails We offer a wide range of lovely fancy upholstery nails at J A Milton but one important question we are often asked if how to hammer them in without damaging the head Well the answer is a nylon tipped hammer This hammer as the name states has a nylon tip one end and a bronze magnetic one with other Although the nylon tip will last years is it replaceable so your hammer will be a tool for life Another handy tool when putting in your fancy nails is our quick nailer This device has two ends one side holds one larger nail to save your fingers when hammering it in The other end has spaces for 5 smaller sized nails and helps you to keep them perfectly lined up on your furniture Finally another option if you don t mind a subtler finish would be to use our nail trim which comes in three finishes It comes in strips with four fake nails and then a space to hammer a real one in This means you can add a nailed effect with a lot less effort This entry was posted in Hints and Tips and tagged hammer how to fancy nails on March 2 2015 by jamilton 2 Item s Show 10 20 30 per page Search Search Recent Posts Why use upholstery buttons Mending holes and splits in furniture frames Joan is featured in Woman s Weekly How to use our decorative nails J A Milton Open Day 2015 Recent Comments jamilton on Do you know Which Tacks You Need Malcolm Piper on Do you know Which Tacks You Need jamilton on Mending holes and

    surface area you wouldn t want your webbing coming undone Fine Head Fine tacks have a smaller head and are great for closely woven calico which has lots of threads per inch meaning that in simple terms more threads are beneath the tack head and secured A wider weave would pull through past the head Next is the length of the tack shaft and we have a few different options Always use the smallest length of tack that will do the job Using too large a tack will do unnecessary damage to the frame Code H1A 5 8 inch 16mm Improved For fixing webbing to very heavy frames and for securing lacing cord when tying in springs Code H1B 1 2 inch 13mm Improved For fixing webbing to most frames except very heavy ones such as sofas and arm chairs when a 16mm is used Code H1BB 1 2 inch 13mm Fine For attaching close weave fabrics when a 10mm is not long enough Code H1C 3 8 inch 10mm Improved For fixing hessians tarpaulin webbing to some finer frames Code H1D 3 8 inch 10mm Fine This is probably the type and size that is most often used For fixing good close weave hessians like scrim or securing calico and top fabric These are available in 200grm bag or 500grm and 1KG boxes both of the larger pack sizes come with a FREE plastic box with resealable lid If you have any more questions regarding tacks or their use you can comment below or call to chat to one of our team on 01691 624023 This entry was posted in Hints and Tips on December 2 2014 by jamilton 1 Item s Show 10 20 30 per page Search Search Recent Posts Why use upholstery buttons Mending holes and

    Electric Staple Guns Electric staplers are the next step up They can be great for upholsterers who use them occasionally and are easy to transport to if you work on site They do need time to recoil as a spring in the nose is what actually makes the staple fire and needs to return to its original state between staples This only takes a second or so but it can be something you need to get used to if you ve previously used a pneumatic gun Electric guns also can only be left on for a few hours it s best to check the manual to keep it in great condition We ve got a selection of electric guns the most popular being our MAE3G 71 Pneumatic Staple Guns Pneumatic staplers are the ultimate option and really are a gun for life They re very powerful and can fire many staples in a row unlike the electric gun as its air that pushes the staple out and therefore doesn t need to wait for a spring to recoil Pneumatic staplers do need to be used with a compressor some of which can be harder to transport but is a lot quicker and faster if you are doing a lot of upholstery work Some compressors can be noisy but we offer a range of silent compressors which makes no more noise than a normal fridge freezer and also the option of wheels to help with moving it around Check our pneumatic guns here and our range of compressors here How do I know which staples I need Most types of gun will tell you what series of staple to use To identify what type you need it will be written in this manner 13 4 8mm The figure 13 signifies the series number of the staple this determines the gauge shoulder width and type of wire The 4 8mm signifies the depth of staple that your gun will fire in this case 4 6 or 8mm could be used This entry was posted in Upholstery on September 30 2014 by jamilton Panel Fasteners or Christmas Trees The upholstery industry is special in the way that many people learnt the trade through apprenticeships and then these people again passed on their skills to other people One thing that comes with this way of learning are regional differences in product names It s always interesting to hear new names for products that we didn t know about We recently had a customer and ring up asking for something her tutor referred to as Christmas Trees After a little discussion about what she needed to use it for and trying to think of what products it could be that we realised it was our panel fasteners Here are a few alternative names for products that we ve discovered over the years Webbing strainer stretcher puller Webbing Strapping Staple remover Staple knocker staple puller Cotton Felt Porridge Wadding Panel Fasteners Christmas Trees Laid cord Lashing
