Hardwood Wedges

Universal type wedges are used by all Framers Corner underpinners as well as several other makes.

Hardwood wedges are sharpened along both edges which allows the wedge to follow the grain of the timber during the pinning process. Depending on the species of wood, the grain may be straight or curved. When working with a curved grain the path of the wedge will also follow the curve and so care must be taken to place the wedge away from the edges of the moulding to avoid breakout. It is not normally possible to stack wedges in hardwood. 

Hardwood wedges do not generally work well in softwood mouldings.

Our wedges are glued on the sharpened side, so are inserted glue side up into the underpinner.
