    Old Jag key

  2. I buy them from ebay, search through and find the ones with the washer on the back. you can get loads of colours and sizes usually with a fitting tool.

    Watch tools

    Just looking at a new press, with the Robur one does it come with the center shaft and retaining spring or do these have to be purchased as well? On Cousins website they are priced individually but didn't know if they were spares!
  5. I'm having problems with my first customer with the Versa key using TX-13D. Not working properly, better when doors open, better one side than other! Now cut on UL054 and waiting to hear back!
  6. I prefer the composite diamond for glass, and keep the feed rate down to about 0.3m/min

    Alternative Movement?

    Citizen 6850 but looks like its also obsolete!! No other alternatives as far as I can make out.
  9. I always clamp these in the bottom flute rather than the back edge, always use genuine blanks as well, never get any back now.

    Description please

    The one that's bugging me at the moment that I'm constantly getting.... "Can I have some laces please?" "Yes, what length would you like?" "Don't know!!" "How many holes down one side?" "Don't know!!" WHY WOULD ANYONE GO OUT TO BUY LACES WITHOUT MEASURING THE OLD ONES OR HAVING THE SLIGHTEST CLUE TO WHAT LENGTH THEY NEED!!! Honestly, it drives me batty, I end shrugging my shoulders and saying " well if you don't know then I've got no chance!!"

  12. Cellulose paint is better than blacking fluid for solid brass!! It actually fills the engraving slightly and has a shiny finish, where as blacking fluid is just a chemical reaction that makes it look like the lettering is dirty.
