Sand Frames

Postby Guest » May 2nd, 2007, 2:46 pm

I've always liked the old-fashioned, yet simplistic & effective Sand Frame prop.

Yet,it's no secret that Sand Frames can be very tempermental & prone to bits of sand clumping-sticking on the glass, due to condensation, etc.

Does anyone have experience with the reliability of the nicer wooden models, such as: early Tenyo; Owens;Makime; etc.?

Thanks.

I own a Milson-Worth walnut sand frame and, if left untouched for very long periods of time, I have noticed some minor "clumping" at first. However, as you play with it, the sand always seem to loosen up and then run very smoothly.

I have 2 jumbo sand frames, don't know the makers of either, but no problems with clumping in either one.

After watching Spider-Man 3 today, I'm kind of afraid who might be living in the frame...
