Gift for Artists: Fine Tune Frame Miters With a Logan F200-2 Precision Sander Elite

Updated on March 10, 2015

I've made picture frames for my artwork and for others for decades.

Now I've found the perfect finishing

sander to ensure a tight corner fit for mitered picture frame moulding.

Even when I pay for mitered wood and metal pieces sometimes they don't quite meet at the corners.

Sure I can stuff the gaps with a wood paste and I do that, but for some particular frames I just want a perfect join.

This tool is the answer to the gap

in the corner of the picture frame. It takes up to a 3 1/2" wide molding piece, and take a look at the pictures in your home - few of our frames are that wide.

For my next art show I will have a couple pieces framed in wide molding and I want to ensure that the corners are tight. Not only will I be showing my work, but I also do custom framing and so it's important that every frame look top notch.

Because it's hand powered the

sander can go anywhere in the room, no dragging a cord along. The hand crank turns the wheel and allows for precision trimming, where a power sander might take off too much, when the corner is just a smidgen out of alignment.

Also, because it's hand operated it makes next to no noise and can be used in an apartment studio, where power tools would not be permitted. And the dust doesn't go flying like with a power sander.

It's also a joy to use outside on the patio or even up on the rooftop deck. Just lay down a small plastic sheet or tarp to catch the dust, and enjoy your project.

Do you or a family member make picture frames for your artwork?

      @sousababy: I'm also attracted to it because it's not tie to a cord or dependent upon electricity.

      Sure seems like a great tool. Love that it's hand operated (no cords, no dust kicked up) and quiet.
