Benchmark MountBlanks


+ Click For Details

Our MountBlanks have been designed to expand your scope of mountmaking by providing you with soldered, annealed blanks in the classic shapes which form the basis of many custom mounts.  For those without soldering facilities, MountBlanks will enable you to execute professional mounts in a basic workshop; for those who can solder, the MountBlanks are a valuable time-saver.

Hat/Helmet MountBlank


+ Click For Details

PHOTOS

A 1/4" diameter, 18" long brass stem with a pointed top end, fitted with a 2" x 3" brass plate. Carve the 4" x 8" x 8" Ethafoam block to fit inside your hat, stick it on the pointy end of the brass stem. (To finish off, we cover the top part of the Ethafoam with stockinette and cut a sheet of dark felt to cover the bottom of the Ethafoam, including the brass plate. The stockinette is kind to the object and the dark felt helps the mount "disappear".) Then bend the stem to the shape you need. Install in deck or wall.

Drop Clip Channel


+ Click For Details

When you need to steady an artifact up against the wall (either on a shelf or with its own bottom clips), these little gems save more time and make an installation easier than you can imagine. Make a "drop-clip" with our 1/8" x 1/2" brass strap. Fit it to the shape of your object. Be sure to allow for padding as required. Screw the drop-clip channel into the wall behind the object. Put the art in place and slide the shaped "drop clip" into this channel. It secures the art gently but firmly in place.  

Use Brass Strap 22-127 to make the clips that fit this channel.

Fabricated here in Rosemont, N.J.

U-Clips

The U-Clip is a simple plexiglas and brass mounting device that allows for easy installation of a plexiglas plate for displaying single documents, photographs, thin closed volumes or magazines. The plexiglas u-clip gets glued to a single plexiglas plate with lip (sold separately). The brass stem gets bent to your desired angle for wall or deck installation.
