    Knife sharpening

    Triton TWSS10 a lot cheaper than Tormek and you can get the Tormek bits off Fle-ebay which also fit.
  4. seems wrong to demonstrate a machine and then sell you something completely different? imho
  5. cannot see it changing anything within this trade?
  6. NOT received anything?? still awaiting pictures etc k4mrc@aol.com

    Timpsons stitcher

    try posting 'close up' photo's of the machine and the parts your after - I am sure one of us will help.
  8. Hi I have tried the links that are on this advert but they lead no where? could you please email me pictures/price etc to k4mrc@aol.com
  9. yes that is true, could that be because Timpson are more aggressive on there prices? We had one walk out today, stiletto heels are 1-99 up the road, and the customer issued absolute 'digust' that I wanted 4-99! (which is cheap enough) but, business is business and we are all fighting for it. It is all about how much competition we all have, I know of one who has none and charges 6-50 or more for a cylinder key - 7-00 stiletto's and always states that he would not drop his prices, but if a half decent independent opened nearby he would change hie tune (as all would)
  10. Maybe if the last survey is available? it probably is, but Lee has the stats already so thought i'd be lazy,.
  11. Is there much change in last year's Lee? Have the average prices increased at all?
  12. price will be !00-00 incl vat and post, pm me if interested
  13. yes - hibsjo - how much as I have no idea on how to use it or what to sell for?

    trophy centers

    Kyd products sell a very easy to use 'centre maker' you just print off the badges you want and then use the dome centre and then use a cutter, we make single centres and charge just a pound - this is also giving slight profit on top of any trophy order we get, sometimes they require 50 so you can imagine. Just give them a call

    Hi joe i have looked today thru one of my large sheds - no joy, and ran out of time so tomorrow will look in the other one - sorry it is taking so long
  18. I have done it!!! this was because a 'competitor' kept sending someone in to have a key they could not recognise for us to cut one, then he'd cut the rest of the order, I know this for two reasons, the guy who wanted 25 keys cut came in after he'd been back (about 4) times and the other time the 'competitor' had sent someone to me who spilled the beans - I had used the keg to knock off the reference LOL that was some time ago, years and gladly not needed to do anymore. you pays to learn..
  19. I have no car park, so using council car parks is a big negative for me, I take it that the car needs to sit for three hours whilst it configures the key? This could become quite a problem - my car dealers have their own car parks so that is a bit easier. Hope this gets better

    Reference "very professional and well attended" the marketing is far superior to our trade, with emailing well in advance and even little cards thru the post. All together it gets the attention from most.
  21. Get yourself along to the Trophex this weekend, there will definitely be something there to add to your business.

    Silca ID48

    Our prices (all of us) will depend on localised competition - i will be around forty quid, which will allow for the fact that the boot won't open and will therefore cut more.
