Assembled and disassembled corner of wood-aluminum stretcher showing design details and expanding corner turnbuckles used to add tension to a stretched canvas.
Centre splice joint (left), shown disassembled (below) and assembled (on right). These splice joints permit large canvases to be folded for easier transportation.
Squaring of corner is done by adjusting the corner turnbuckles
The stretcher frame can be expanded or contracted very precisely by adjusting the position of a threaded nut at the end of each brace.
