    my silca viper is the one machine id never get rid of , if it died id buy another straight away , this has been a loyal hard working machine thats never missed a beat , i suspect it will outlive my ninja laser and A6 and still be cutting keys long after these have died. yes it wont do some of the new keys such as vag with side cut , but its robust and almost bomb proof and what it does do it does very well , a gem of a machine that i suspect will still be working hard for me long after this generation of futura have died.

    Would this be unprofessional?

    yep no worries -if you have a local shop that would take them and give him a couple of questions to ask - how many and what type of key and where do they fit?

    Absolutely or alternatively leave a note on your window/ shutters with an alternative collection point. Don't mention spanish keys so you will know she is genuine when collecting.

    Looks more like a welt roller/fudge wheel combination. Rick.

    Already ordered. Not the customers fault I don’t have it and going to the extra effort is going to be worth more to my reputation than an extra couple of quid in the till. That’s my view anyway

    would you clean these

    Maybe that's all his/her customer base will allow? I've worked all over the place and I know for a fact that where you could charge a tenner for a job in certain areas, in other places you'd struggle to get 4 quid, especially in poorer market or seaside towns. At the end of the day you've got to cut your cloth accordingly.

    flexpin dowels

    They work the same as regular ones but they are thicker and come in smaller head sizes. They’re on sale at the minute and running at 4 times the price of usual PU’s. They are useful for things like Louboutins and Jimmy Choo’s but unless you get a lot in, I don’t think I’d bother getting them

    flexpin dowels

    They do. but they seem to be stronger and can trim smaller because of the metal head that they sit on
