  1. As it says in the description, I have had an enquiry for engraving a football team logo on a gallon sized whisky bottle which is to be used for charity collecting. Too big for me and the places in town say it's too big for their machinery. She has permission from the team to use the logo so no problem with licences etc. Is there anyone here who would take on this job by mail order?? Or can anyone recommend a trade sandblasting business I could use?? thanks in advance Les...
  2. ok mate, there's always the awkward ones, good luck...
  3. can't you just use the times roman font from your package?? It looks hand drawn and the guy might be happier if you did it with an actual font with a diamond between the letters?? This is the line I would take on it and would produce a more professional looking job...
  4. Sorry for the late reply Bronco, here's the place I get my 8 facet diamonds from, if you buy one make sure you ask them to package it up securely, the first one I got from them they just threw it in a jiffy bag, it was OK but I did say to them it could get bent and useless on a light touch knob, next one was taped between a couple of bits of stiff carboard. http://www.dnsons.co.uk/

    2 bad shoulders, had numerous cortisone and other treatments but just comes back after a few months, my dad had the same issues, maybe the way I do the work, possibly the way he trained me when I was an apprentice...
  8. forgot I'd already asked this question and had an answer, cheers...

      That's great Martin.

      I've just posted the blank by 1st class recorded delivery so you should get it on Monday.

      This is the last genuine SAH blank I have so I must get it back thanks...

      I've put one of my shop cards in with it for the address and shop phone number.

      many thanks.

      no worries


  10. Hi, looking for someone to do some Union keys for me on the Easie Entrie, is anyone doing this trade work. I usually get them from SKS but the last couple of batches have been poor with breakages or just not fitting, a bit expensive at £6.00 a pop... thanks in advance Les...
  11. Imagine that scenario 4 or 5 times a day, every day... one time I was told it was 99p for a yale in Birmingham, I'm in Edinburgh
  12. They took the one out of the asda closest to me and the staff point folk in my direction, I think they were fed up with the complaints. The sainsburys along from me have a Johnsons cutting keys but only 1 or 2 in there know what to do and the others send them to me for anything other than a straight yale. The only thing is the hagglers, "£10 for three keys in asda" why are you in here then?? "I got them and they did not work" Mine are £10 for three keys that don't work, £13.50 for three at actually will work.
  13. Might seem a strange title but there's method in my madness I think. I am sick to the back teeth of a certain type of person coming into my shop and trying to haggle me on the price of say 2 Yales, even to the point where I have been loosely called a racist because I won't give them money off just because they ask for it. So I am wanting to keep a range of the cheapest blanks I can find so that if I do decide to knock a little bit off they're not getting my expensive UK and EU made keys. does anyone have a link?? thanks in advance
  14. ha ha, so I did... I've just been knocking them back but a mate of mine has a really expensive pair and is asking if I can do anything. Things might have moved on in 10 years...
