    [QUOTE=donbga]Yes I've read that article, I was hoping to get some info from someone that may have done this already, such as how to make the pins work in a vacuum easel, tips on pin placement, etc.

    Don,
    I have a registration system consisting of a punch and pins made by Ternes Burton http://www.ternesburton.com/. The punch is strong enough to punch a sheet of aluminum so the pins can be pushed through from the back and the whole assembly is thin enough at just over 1/8th" not to cause any problems in my 33"x43" vacuum frame. I usually have to extend the distance between the pins and the image with film offcuts to get the placement of the image on the paper just right, so the distance between the pins and the image is always at least 4-5". This helps to ensure the film is always tight against the paper. With an image that would sit closer to the pins, I would think that full contact could be a problem.
    The paper is mounted using Fusion 4000, which is archival, and afterwards I remove the print from the aluminum and remount it onto another sheet of the same paper.
    Keith.

    Thanks very much Keith. May I ask how thick or what guage your aluminum is and where do you source it?

    Thanks,

    Don

    It's 1/16th" thick and I just buy it from the hardware store. To support it in the water (my sheets are around 24"x36") and keep it from sinking, I use six 35mm metal spirals.

    Thanks Keith.

    Any chance you could post a pic of the pin registerd aluminum, paper, film sandwhich sometime. I'm curious to see what it may look like. Thanks again for the link.
