Just to let you know the switch (rocker switch on right hand side of machine) on my Silca Bravo Pro Mk2 shorted and caught fire while I was cutting a key yesterday.
This machine is less that 2 years old and the switch gets turned on when I cut my first cylinder key and goes off when I cut the supply at the end of the day.
bearing this in mind it can be used at the most 600 times
Luckily I was at the machine and smelt the short and had time to remove the bottom plate as bits of molten plastic fell on my bench.
Cannot remember what warranty came with this machine, will check this out on monday.
Big thanks to my friend who came and bypassed switch to keep me going and to Birch's who sent out switch which came first thing this morning.
