  1. I do them, £5 each incl vat - you pay post both ways, up to you wether spec delivery or 2nd class (for every 10 I do will donate £5 to forum charity)
  2. I like the 'under 3 minutes' notice, as I have customers who state 3 keys took at least 30 minutes and didn't work? But how ever we think this is more competition for all.

    Broken fake.

    If they start having a go, take the watch bits to a bona fide jewellers as for a written statement also a true valuation of the watch which you can use to back you up in any legal claim upon you
  4. UL2 works for me??
  5. I too have more than one staff, but it's far too slow - I guess maybe were too critical there are 4 of us and each time anyone of us get these keys in we all turn to the manual way.

  10. I got completely fed up sat in traffic about 10 years ago doing about 3. Mph in a very fast car and it’s fair to say traffic is about 5 times worse now that then maybe more. the car cost a fortune and even had it been 100kplus I wouldn’t have moved any faster - motorcycle after motorcycle came passed and I remember that when I was younger (lot younger) I rode a bike because it was all I could afford so then took lessons direct access and then advanced training and now go France Portugal Spain and next year doing Europe changed my life and enjoy pottering about takes my mind off work hassles etc even my wife loves getting on the bike thing is I’m on holidays now in Turkey NO bike but the wife insists and here I am looking at the forum lol get a hobby outside the business “Live to Work or Work to Live” your choice,,,,
  11. Why not make all users pay to advertise say £5 If you sell on eBay you pay and as this is a dedicated trade site surely would e worthwhile

    New Stock

    Some years ago I had this thought, but was showing them to a friend who said “stop. A one who wants one will not think of coming to a cobbler shop - first place they go is a hardware shop” i think he is right diversify by all means- but think where do people usually go first. Internet is effectively driving shops to close so think carefully every time
  13. Get a motorcycle big one lol change your life

  16. HD say you need to buy in 50's but, I think you have to order 250 per head (same shaped head) but you can have more or less any. I'm thinking os the RS1 keys
  17. I'm a BIG HD fan and had lots done over the years, honestly not sure it's eve worth doing though.

  19. been thinking on this, and it seems everyone is 'jumping on the band wagon' by criticising all plastic use - If we got say 50 car keys posted without the plastic protection and a lot of the keys were scratched due to them 'rattling' in the box in transit who would we blame? I mean you supply a scratched key to the customer and they comment "it looks second hand?" what are you going to say? oh were against plastic and this is how they arrived? I too did not like the plastic whale that seems to have sparked off quite a debate but we all need to get a grip - maybe the manufacturers will adopt the plastic bags that if put into the water dissolve and fish can actually eat - I hope so.. But this will al take time, maybe the SMSR guys could try and make something of it all?
  20. 1 -davenport burgess made a stamp for me, with my company name on - some years ago, this was one line of very small text then you could stamp your own second line underneath or a second stamp 2 -hand dentist type of thing with little practise, you can easily write your message on from cousins

    Paper bags

    yes, but why not think of having your own brand on them?
  22. Surely this could be overcome simply by posting 'One' odd shoe, could be Ladies or Gents [for the candidate to repair - with say two days allowed to do, and a repair of your choice - the person requiring the crown of master repairer could also pay the return postage etc, and at least you could have some idea that the repair falls within a reasonable to high quality. This could be judged by almost anyone. Charities then could benefit from the repaired shoes (after you have had them both repaired or even the homeless, quite a good PR for our trade?
