  1. rapidlocks

    which machine to buy

    silca or keyline all day long , i prefer ninja laser to futura personally .
  2. rapidlocks

    Picks wanted

    what ones you looking for rob , i know a chap that was selling a load , not sure if still for sale or if he would split them , he had almost a full set , but all pre the new 110 and 114 , the previous generation
  3. 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.
  4. sadly in some areas its our own trade suppliers undercutting us in an attempt to dominate retail market as well , even one of our diagnostic suppliers is now undercutting their trade customers on retail jobs on a national basis , the race to the bottom is hotting up.
  5. yup including my local greetings card shop , that offers clone keys , obd keys that their skp900 covers as well as house keys , so you can pop in for a birthday card a fathers day card , a new front door key and a spare car key in just one visit and still have enough to buy a party balloon
  6. thats hull and grimsby tarts for you , hard as nails, roll their own fags one handed and more tatoos than a sailor
  7. i read somewhere it was an untapped emerging market place . though ive also read that rates are falling faster than a tarts knickers .
  8. i use this one at present , https://www.tantronics.co.uk/battery-chargers/2a-50a-professional-lead-acid-gel-agm-and-calcium-battery-charger.html?gclid=Cj0KEQjwmIrJBRCRmJ_x7KDo-9oBEiQAuUPKMuGSqgMd0xy2zgai4Zx03Ub1I5GVMAMWve2MKJ6tS2YaAjsy8P8HAQ
  9. plenty of good jump packs , my experience of these over the years is that cheap ones let you down , ive used ring and sealey , both do a decent job , as with anything you get what you pay for . i also use a good battery support unit for jobs that need voltage maintaining throughout , like bmw , my ring one hasnt let me down
  10. with the merc kit its a very good price , without the merc kit id say better buying new at a trade show with some tokens and warranty , though if not vat registered then £2500 is still a significant saving on the new price plus vat if you cant claim vat back , hickleys have a few used zedfulls on their site in their used section , both significantly dearer than this one , but with 12 months warranty and tech support , and some lifs and tokens as well as some packs added . if zedfull is the machine you want , id say in the absence of a cheaper one available its an ok price if not vat registered , not for me as i have the coverage elsewhere token free , but its an expensive machine to buy so still cheaper than new

    HPC Blitz

    id guess at Kent
  12. chatted to him on another forum , he wants £2600 for the basic zedfull unit , not much dearer at the trade shows at show price plus at show it will be with full warranty and some lifs and tokens , especially if vat registered and can claim back the vat it may work out much the same , but may be of interest to those not vat registered or in a hurry for the token unit. the 2 guys i know looking for one wouldnt offer anywhere near his price so didnt pursue.
