  1. I ran a frame shop for a while when I was in college and have always been amazed that more people don’t know about ATG adhesives. Absolutely indispensable if you do any kind of assembly work.

  2. If you spritz a little water on the film protecting the acrylic sheet before you peel it off it neutralises the static. Don’t ask me how!
