  1. ETA 956.112 for Braille Watch

    The picture on Cousins website looks like it has some type of cap on the pinion, not sure if it's a screw though!!
  2. Good idea...until the customer loses or forgets the receipt!!
  3. Might be a pain in the arse, but what about a simple letter stamp on each key with staff members initial or allocated number. Awkward on some blanks and time consuming on large orders but it's your reputation that's at stake!!
  4. If I was to cut the old sole and put the lift in between then probably £30
  5. Quite straightforward! I would charge £20.
  6. I took an old bench grinder and removed the grinding wheels, bought some polishing mops with spindle mounts and some bars of different grade polishing compounds from Cousins. Works a treat on pewter, even done some gold and silver jewellery. Local jeweller charges £25 to remove engraving and they send it away, I charge £20 and can do it more or less straight away!
  7. Lacquer?

    This was the one I used to use.
  8. Clasp for bag

    Google tucktite bag clasps, lots of sizes and colours from different companies. I've bought from a couple of different companies, Cox the saddler shop, bag-clasps.co.uk are a couple
  9. capacitor MT416

    Cousins?? Royal Mail won't take hazardous items so have to go by courier, although not normally that price!!
  10. Three for a tenner? Really?

    It's happening everywhere!! My high street is dead, Argos will be moving to the out-of-town Sainsburys in June, another nail in the coffin. I'm hanging on by the skin of my teeth but I don't know for how much longer I want to just scrape by. Seems to be too hard to make money nowadays, especially in retail. If the big guys like Maplin, New Look etc. are all shutting down what hope do us little guys have!
  11. Three for a tenner? Really?

    I bet he don't queue up at Morrisons with his trolley full of shopping, then when he gets to the till start haggling the price!! Haggling is one of my pet hates and instantly refuse or start haggling upwards.
  12. Guillotine for metal & plastic Best money you'll spend!!
  13. Customers!!! I remember those, the good old days of retail!!!
  14. SKS are Maxus suppliers, try them.
  15. I had a customer with one of these ceramic straps. The first two or three links do not separate, so after looking around t'internet I advised him to get a replacement strap, probably from ebay as I couldn't get one at reasonable enough price to make a profit on.
