    JMA Multicode

    This is the reply I got from Insta code , That seems to go against the info I got from SKS ? "We had communications with JMA in March 2017 regarding communicating with this machine. Funny thing is we heard from them again a couple of days ago. I’ve been advised it isn’t a small job because of how the machine works but we are reopening discussions with them on this".

    Caliper gauge

    I use the digital ones & filed the tips thinner to fit in between cuts easier .
  8. I've been looking at 2nd hand Gravograph M20 iq & U-Marq tx5 type machines but they don't offer a warranty & I know nothing about servicing these machines . Would i be better off getting a new one ?

    Cuts too deep for jaws

    Is this a double sided key ?
  11. A few months ago I had it in mind to get either a Silca Futura or a Keyline Ninja total .Mainly due to suppliers being very slow in getting back to me I've had plenty of time to get opinions & advice mainly on here .I have a Silca Viper with edge kit so that has all car keys covered , ref Yale superior keys it sounds like I can do them quicker on my RST & Punto machines & engraving I'm better of with a stand alone unit at £2-3k..I have a HPC blitz that does a great job on standard keys so why spend £10k in vat ..is there something I'm over looking ?

    Paxton fobs

    The company that fits these only charges £9 per fob down my way .
  13. Any idea when the patent runs out on the magnet type profiles ?
  14. I was doing a load of these for the ERA B/S Rim lock & noticed that they were turning clock wise but not anti clockwise , It turned out that I had to also run over the shoulder as well it hardly took anything off but made the difference , I'm also having to hold more & more Silca key blanks in one of the flutings as there is less metal below the lowest fluting , I guess to save on material. .

    Cutting Era (Silca ER2)

    Sharpening Machine

    Is there a model number you would recommend ?
  19. I've recently been asking for quotes on a Silca Futura & a Keyline Ninja , None of the companies have seemed to have read my email fully as I don't need the Auto adaptors that they offer in some of their Web page packages .The offer of one company to come down & show me how to work the machine made me laugh as they broke my Silca Viper by putting a plastic key in it ..Even I knew not to do that
