One of the best tools!
Posted December 1, 2013
I don't do a lot of picture framing, but when I do, I remember how hard it was to mount the pictures and crafts using a hammer, nail punch and/or a putty knife to push in the points. This is One of The BEST tools to have around, even if some folks complain about it being plastic.

I've been doing custom frames for more than 10 years. Can't begin to tell you the amount of glass I've broken, frames that I've ruined, etc., because I used to use everything from glazing points to electric nail brads really guns. THIS SOLVES ALL THE PROBLEMS! I just built an order of 15 frames and didn't have any trouble because of this product. Easy to use and very effective. A little pricey, but well worth it!

It does a nice job of inserting picture points and the points due to their shape can be easily removed with long nose pliers. It can also be used to install Glass brads to hold glass in window frames, a universal tool.

It is a matter of how much you use it.

This is constructed of the same glass-filled nylon as is used in my 15-year-old Matfer Mandoline (a food slicer for those of you who confine your cutting to the shop). It is quite sturdy, and works like a champ. Since it's *not* metal, I don't need to worry about it corroding over time. Sets the points very well, and even though a bit pricey, made its cost back on the very first use framing 3 12x18 photos.
