  1. That's more or less what we will be doing now on, smaller show next year in Edinburgh then the larger one 2020 followed by a different regional one the year after. We just wanted to fall in line to alternate the years without the big locksmith show hence the gap this year.

    Be very careful doing this, OK regular posters no problem but saying you have to make a donation first no longer makes it a donation. The tax man can be very awkward about this as i know.
  3. Like shoes you mean? It's definitely a changed market, our bread and butter is through repairs and spares it has been for a long time
  4. They always have but it's more prominent without the CE show
  5. T.Colledge are hosting a mini show at the Aztec Hotel in Bristol, a familiar venue to us and we will be there with a couple of small machines to chat to anyone about their needs. Along with us will be Davenport Burgess, U-Marq and Glenway
  6. NEC worked out 10 x the cost of our venues last time we looked. Our exhibitions don't cost a great deal relatively speaking and still it's hard to justify for many including us.
  7. But just in case 2020 is 4th October at Coventry Motorcycle Museum
  8. Mick, Specsavers have offers on you know
  9. The Bristol one is a wholesalers (T.Colledge) event so guessing the dates are to suit, Alex in Nottingham is not their market they quite probably know nothing of it. As you mention as well getting venue within budget is a nightmare - I know they tried for a week after but it was impossible and later would not work at all. The dates for Cutting Edge are now booked through 2020 and both of those had to be negotiated because our original dates were already booked at the venues! For information there will be a smaller exhibition in Edinburgh 29th September 2019 and we return to the Motorcycle Museum in Coventry for our main exhibition 4th October 2020

    Engraving Off Centre

    I don't know the M20J but I do know with other Gravo machines there is a way to re centre the diamond in the start up cycle have you tried anything like that? I found a user manual and p28 explains the adjustments to be made http://gravo.dk/User manuals/GTM20eng.pdf

    Level of service at SKS

    Count, I know exactly where Keith is coming from that's not wages that's cost once you add in vehicles travel costs etc 40,000 is on the conservative side
