Hello, I have a shop in newhaven, I am a locksmith mainly but Have been involved in shoe repairs for a while, 

i have been turning away doctor Martin units because I’m not certain how to secure them.

Any input and advice would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Cut old units off at joint with sharp knife, clean welts by scouring on finisher, (don't damage welt stitches,)

obtain units of correct size, attach with suitable adhesive, trim edges with suitable trimmer, simple repair.

I seem to remember something about Timpson getting told off about doing the repairs this way.

 

 

They can be done better using hot knife, but not advisable in a shop environmentt, to many fumes.
