    Default Anyone else using Green Trax frames from Sefar?

    Hey All,

    Anyone else using these? I bought a few after seeing them in Austin earlier this year. We seem to be getting slight tears near the edge of the frame. Anyone else having this problem? They haven't ripped the screen and I haven't noticed any tension loss, but I am concerned about preventing it in the future.

    I had a few small ones, mostly from where the clamps got put on or the edge scraped something. Some tape before using them would prevent this i think.

    that is the riskiest point, where the mesh is stretched over the frame.

    So you mean just tape the back along that edge that way the clamp is hitting the tap not the mesh stretched over the frame? I forgot you mentioned something about wedging cardboard or something cause the speedball clamps were too large? When we were talking about them in Austin.

    yeah. and the speedball jiffy clamps aren't really long enough on the bottom, you should slip a few pieces of chipboard or some thin flat piece to extend the support across the bottom of the frame. Otherwise the clamps will slip up into that space.
