I'm framing a couple of mirros that will run 60 to 70 lb ea. I'd like to use WB's for ease but wonder if they will bend under the weight? Has anyone used them succesfully (or not) for pieces this heavy?
Having the load on the bottom rail removes gravitational stress from the frame corners. When the top rail carries the load, frame corners could fail over time.Originally posted by shopmonkey, cpf:
ditto jim, on the z-bar. 'cept when we do top and bottom we make 'em either same tautness or bottom a wee loose. loose tops rattle a bit.
