    Key ID help

    Thank you for all your help, it's looking like a HD MR1 which I think will be the same as a Silca MER1 I have tried to like comments above but some reason it won't let me

    Watch Straps

    Thanks for that, will give them a try I was going to use Charles Birch but after 3 attempts just to get a catalogue sent I gave up
  7. Hi guys We are looking at starting to offer replacement watch straps at our shop and I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a reliable supplier? Thanks in advance 👍
  8. Quick update Thanks for all the responses, we've discounted the multi machine and are now looking between the RST mk 2 and the Lancer Plus. It looks like the Lancer plus is a very well liked machine however its cost might be a bit steep for the volume of mortice keys we get asked for.
  9. Hi We are looking at getting a mortice key cutting machine and I'm just after a bit of advice What are the dual machines like (cylinder and mortice)? We are currently running the Bianchi keyline easy cylinder machine, this is a great machine and touch wood we've never had a single issue with it. The Mortice machine we have been offered is a RST MK2 TM1011 and I was wondering if anyone had any experiences with this machine? Thanks in advance
  10. Hi guys Quick question I've had a few keys in today and all it says on them is 10 does anyone know which HD blank I should be using for them? Closest I've found is the 16HL (touch wood these have all worked) but just wondered if there was an exact match I should use
  11. The ML1 is a longer blank? The ones I cut yesterday using NS9CS all worked apparently?
  12. Does anyone know the cross reference for a Mila 0.4? Is it a NS9CS?

    Ellbee M Series

    Yeah we use the davenport equivalent of that on the E series, the M series seems to be longer, I even tried cutting from the far end and trimming the shoulder back, (maybe I didn't trim the shoulder back enough)
  14. Hi guys, anybody know what blank cross references with the Ellbee M series? Never had one in the shop before today, The E series we always use the Sofi S04R but these seem to be slightly longer?
