    This is probably the hardest thing to get right, one of my brothers has a really good eBay account which the feedback is somewhere around 40,000 last time I looked and talking to him he gats more business on his web biz from people who visit whilst buying off of eBay - when they go to the checkout he has the page similar to the bay one and for some reason they buy more whilst there - most don't . He also links everything else to his web page, facebook linked in twitter etc.
  3. I had a customer into my shop and was asking for parts of materials that I'd never been asked for before - she explained she was making her own shoes which she read on the internet. After a little searching I fond this - https://www.wikihow.com/Make-Shoes Maybe this site should adopt similar themes?

    The obvious line here is "Business is Business" if you don't someone else will - yes look after your mate but if you invest in a good machine you will be amazed at how much business you will create, if you do not someone else will - Mr t is opening everywhere hey also do engraving

    just seen this

    Does look good, how do the people who make the ones here http://www.petsun.mobi/Personalized-Photo-Necklace-Sterling-Silver-a charge so little? If you did these it's all depending on time etc
  8. Out, and not believed all the crap on the BBC which is driven by Gov to try and get people scared - they did it in Scotland and Cameroon thought he would get away with it for the Brexit vote, seems we all did not believe the hype - also some of the MP's have changed there minds they voted to stay and now are happy to leave? i hope they grow a pair and start fighting for this country
  9. This is a letter to one of my customers about the Hydrolysis that occurred with the moulded units on his shoes, just to give you something to talk about with your customer's hope it helps in some way., Dear Sir, Thank you for your email and pictures very helpful, unfortunately your older boots have Hydrolysis The molecules in the polyurethane midsole of your footwear has broken down due to a reaction known as Hydrolysis. This can sometimes occur in polyurethane products, usually many years after manufacture. It may be accelerated through lack of use, or by being stored in a humid unventilated area. Hydrolysis is a natural process and not a manufacturing flaw All boot/shoe makers can experience problems with rubber based sole units, it is not isolated to your Dubarry boots. You could try www.pickupmyrepair.com who may be able to build up a sole for you. We are sorry we cannot repair on this occasion however, as a gesture of good will we would be able to offer you 20% off a non sale pair of boots which would be valid until 6 months from the date of this email.
  10. Surely new cutters would suffice? still be cheap..
  11. just donated due to sale of 20 keys as I agreed to £5 + gift aid
  12. 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)
  13. 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
  15. UL2 works for me??
  16. 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.

  21. 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,,,,
  22. 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
