    Instacode Live - FREE Coupon / Code

    Was you getting a lot of enquiries for keys to code before you subscribed and that pushed you to try it?

    I would say the one on the right. The numbers are palindromic and the 65/56 cuts are next to each other to my untrained eye!!!!
  3. I would of gone down the route of price for 1 would be £11.50 which includes set-up charge, for 156 I'd do them for £3 each (as it's just put in disc and press repeat), no set-up charge, so £468.

    Is Instacode worth having if you don't have a key to code machine? Where would it's worth be?
  5. Looks it to me as there's no toolpath markings, the lettering is smooth.
  6. You can use an anodised aluminium tag and then aluminium blacking fluid but it's not always a great finish, definitely not as nice as laser. Possibly a brass tag with paint infill like a brass memorial plaque, but I would say they're too thin for this.

    Sharpening Machine

    I've got the T3 but I think that has been replaced by the T4!! Depending on budget, I would go for the T8 if I was buying again.
  9. Looks like an ordinary 1A, UL1, N9CS profile.

    Wallet sales

    I used to get lots from Oxford Leathercraft but they started to get alittle expensive for my customers tastes. I wish they had an e-commerce website so I could browse and add stuff at my leisure. I would probably order more that way rather than compiling a list and typing out each code in an email or ringing up and going through the list!!! Does my head in!
  12. I very rarely need to cut to code, in fact, I can't remember the last time I thought I could've done with a cut to code machine! I have Silca Bravo Pro, Matrix SX and Lancer Plus to copy all I get asked for so don't see where I would get anything from spending thousands on one, but please do give a good reason to at least think hard about it. As I said, I love a gadget!!

    Wallet sales

    Cracking selection! Where do you get yours from Mine stay looking like that for about 2 minutes, first customer absolutely destroys them!!
  14. As a gadget freak I'm desperate to get one but unfortunately, my business doesn't warrant the outlay!!
  15. Cut them on HD 41E, JMA YA27D??

    Wallet sales

    Any suppliers? I've looked for phone cases but the best range seems to be Aliexpress or other chinese importers and I've never been down this route before so a little unsure!

    Wallet sales

    I've sold a few mens wallets but seem to be getting asked for more ladies purses. Just topped up from CB so I'll see how they go. A bugbear of mine with wallets and purses is displaying them! In the packaging, out the packaging, individual stands on a shelf, dump basket.....Always look a bloody mess, especially after customers have rifled through, opened the packets and then just left them on top!!! I have two slatwall baskets at the moment (1 ladies, 1 mens), what are you guys doing display wise?

  19. I've just had this ladies vintage mechanical watch come in and I think the mainspring has gone as it just keeps winding without gaining tension. I was hoping to buy a mainspring and barrel all in one and just replace it but I don't know the make of the movement. The only marks are the one circled but I don't recognize it. Any Ideas? I don't have mainspring winders otherwise I would just measure and purchase a mainspring and fit it, and really not worth the investment.

    Make of movement?

    Didn't think of ebay!!! Worth a punt for that price, thanks Lee

    just seen this

    I would say it's ordinary photo engraving then milled out round the edge and solder a jump ring to the top, maybe??
  22. It's done on a laser machine i.e. Silca Matrix, RST Mustang etc.
  23. I offer a second key the same for half price, to everyone! Keeps the barterers at bay!!
  24. I bought an old one off ebay to create the lined pattern around the heel, I think it was called a fudge wheel!! I use the ones above from Tandy for the sole bottoms.

    Sharpening Machine

    Had mine a few years now, cracking bit of kit. I've just replaced my grinding wheel, and as I do mainly hairdressing scissors and cooking knives I went for the SJ-200 Japanese waterstone. At 4000grit it gives a razor edge and a mirror finish without honing. Highly recommended for knives, scissors, chisels etc.
