Are you looking for advice on a specific Stretching Machine, or stretching machines in general.

We have a Tensador II that we have used on a few occasions.
It's main failing is that it needs a few inches of material on all sides of the art, while our customers often bring in art with 1/2" material on all sides.

We are looking to purchase a machine, so we are looking for input from anyone who has had experience with any brand,

What types of projects do you expect to be stretching.
More Photos on Canvas, or original works of art?
I found it a bit hard to line up art for stretching on the Tensador. Especially when it is a gallery wrap.
