  1. I'm not sure I agree that customers keep going back.... I believe they only go back when there isn't a better option! Treat your customers right, and turn out first class work and you WILL overcome.

  4. Alright, so this is their N series keyways (NA to NK) that was set aside for the U.S. Secret Service but ended up in various industrial settings around the U.K somehow. They're common in old master-keyed settings now. Genuine blanks are no longer a thing. The best suitor to fit it is JMA's YA-15I. Yale's own depth and space specification for the N section does not match anything Yale currently use, it doesn't belong to their 0.015", 0.019", 0.025" or their metric specifications. Nothing on InstaCode will match it so don't waste your time decoding it. Because of this, you will notice JMA YA-15I is actually a tiny bit shorter than the genuine Yale key (they all are) but the JMA will just about fit 6 pins using a basic key duplicator. It's the best you'll get. Your genuine key will not fit in a gauge because it's warded. Yale key gauges assume you're testing pass sections which you don't have there.

  6. The combination of cutting deeper on a genuine blank got the cow off the ice. That's a German farmers' idiom, to denote an iffy situation that has been solved. It has no sexist content.

  7. Lady brought in a Burberry bag, cost her over £1,000... tried the likes of Timpson, but no-one would touch it. Not only is it £100 in the till, it tells another customer that Timpson are not craftsmen. Timpsons are what McDonald's are as far as fine dining goes!

  8. For anyone who is interested, having tested a few different furniture polishes this weekend the winner is..... Aldi polish. Really thick and stays on the glass during engraving.

  17. If you're running it on a 3 pin plug you shouldn't, it needs to be hard wired to a minimum 16amp supply.

    Wysiwyre question

    I don't use it. I prefer to use the machining window preview. At a guess, it's recalculating your fill and deciding it can't engrave.

  21. That is usually down to the blanks not being wide enough. Have you tried using a genuine Yale blank ?.

  26. You are talking about the standard section ARC blank, we use silca UL051, we have a nursing home up the road and have cut loads of them. They brought a lock in when we first started been asked to cut them and UL051 was the best fit.

    Swatkins. They may even be able to clean up the one you have and replate it. We have had a couple done in years gone by. Won't be cheap though.

  29. Agreed with Meekie, dimple cuts to deep but snake cut is perfect that is how the Traix cuts them. Machine needs recalibaration looking at the copy.

  33. Sand is a better solution than WD40 at least you know what you get with sand. WD40 when used should always have a proper lubricant applied afterwards (preferably not used in the first place). The amount of locks we see destroyed by the corrosive and sticky nature of WD40 is unreal. Spray a squeaky hinge with WD40 and for a couple of weeks it will be fine then it will slowly become worse over time than it was to start with. Great for water displacement though.
