Not too sure about this thing...

Comments about Mountex Shrink Wrapper Kit:
So, right out of the box I was a little unimpressed because of how dirty everything inside the box was. The film had dust all over it, and the little roll of foam that you're supposed to use to cut and seal on top of had debris like dead grass rolled up inside of it and was also coated with dust. It cleaned easily but, what the heck?The sealer seems flimsy and potentially dangerous. I'm afraid to leave it alone for very long because I'm pretty sure it will catch my house on fire. It smokes like crazy and smells terrible, plus it has an old fashioned 60's plug that doesn't stay plugged in very well and the thinnest cord I've ever seen on anything. I am actually considering having my husband look at it and put a different cord on it.The heat gun looked really out of place compared with all the flimsy junk in the box, and it actually had a modern plug on it! It worked really well and after my first attempt I had the hang of it. I think I held the gun about 4" away from the plastic and you have to keep going until the wrinkles and bubbles disappear. At first I was upset because it looked terrible but I kept at it and the wrinkles disappeared.The heat sealer is scary and I think I will be replacing it sooner than later. This was a good kit to get started with and figure out what I want when I buy my next one. The handle of the heat sealer gets hot and it smokes a lot, plus the design is terrible and often times the trimmed plastic melts to the top of the sealer.My kit did NOT come with any instructions but it is simple enough to figure out if you have even limited mechanical skills. It would have been nice to have any safety tips though.Overall I don't think this product is very high quality, but it is a decent kit to get started with and does the job. The appearance is, in my opinion, much more professional than using bags, even though it takes more time to do. Oh, and when you're shrinking the bag, flip it over so that you are shrinking over the back side of the image. The seams will end up on the front if you shrink it with the image facing up.The film dispenser doesn't "dispense" as much as it wrinkles up your shrink film and makes a mess of it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Does what it's supposed to do
By Where's That? Photography
from Carrollton, Texas
I'm very impressed with how simple and easy this product is to use. I just finished wrapping 130 5x7 photographs and had minimal problems. My next project will be an equal number 8x10's and 11x14's. The learning curve is short and sweet. The keys to using it successfully are patience and don't get too close with the heat gun. Don't be in a hurry. My only "complaint" would be that the instructions don't mention how much margin is needed around what you are wrapping. I've worked it down to about 3/4" for my small prints and will probably go a bit more for my larger ones (11x14 and 8x10).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Does the job
from Huntington, WV
I bought the Mountex Shrink Kit for when odd sized prints came into my frame shop.And everything worked great for me right out of the box.I really liked the way film sealer cut and sealed the edges of the film all at the same time.Just remember to give the film sealer plenty of time to warm up first.There was a very short learning curve, the end product had a nice professional look to it, and I felt the system was worth the money I paid for it.
