Softwood Wedges

Our softwood wedges are supplied in glued strips. universal wedges are used in all Framers Corner underpinners as well as several other makes.

Softwood wedges are sharpened along one edge, which allows it to cut through the grain of softwoods, hence the crunching sound normally heard during pinning.

Most framers in the UK use softwood wedges all of the time, only switching to hardwood wedges when they encounter a particularly hard moulding. 

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