    A.G.Thomas have the 369 listed on their website but not sure if they have in stock, give them a ring.

    ISA 369 Movement

    ISA 608.101 possibly? It's a little higher ( 3.10mm compared to 2.75mm) but may be enough room if the glass is domed.
  3. Anyone got any of the AM2005.02 silver golf medal in stock? I need 27 for an order by the end of the month and there's no date for stock at the moment Thanks

    Same size on the Renata comparison plastic thingy I have, one is high drain, the other is low drain.

    New product range.

    Will be one of those things where they can go on Amazon and order for delivery next day cheaper than you can buy them in at!!
  6. Try clamping them in the machine using the bottom groove rather than the flat back. I always cut UAP keys like this now as they were a bit hit and miss, now get zero returns on them.

    Key I’d please

  10. Mastergrave paint is cellulose. I prefer this to acrylic as it has a gloss finish, I find the acrylic stays matt when dry.

    New tax are they trying to kill us off?

    With Quickbooks do you still have to use an accountant to verify everything and submit your tax returns or is it all calculated and sent through to HMRC? I was just working out the maths as if you pay a monthly fee then still have to pay an accountant anyway then it's really not worth it at the moment, at least until they say we all have to use digital everything!!

    New tax are they trying to kill us off?

    I still do my books in a handwritten cash book. No staff, no VAT, half hour once a week, but was thinking of looking at Quickbooks. I tried Sage a couple of years ago but was massively overboard for my business, was wondering if Quickbooks was the same? Anyone that uses it have any pros and cons?

    leather goods

    For me, I own my building so rent is mine, I don't pay rates (100% small business rate relief) and not enough turnover for VAT and I pay what tax I'm told. It's the footfall on the high streets, no one bothers. You need people to bring shops and you need shops to bring people, It's a no win situation and I don't know where the answer lies but I don't think it's in rate and rent reductions. People want to shop on the internet and that's it. Unfortunately they forget that the services you can't get online cannot survive in empty streets waiting for the odd customer!

    leather goods

    Had a little flurry of last minute xmas eve purchases in wallets and zippos but outside of that, not a lot of giftware sold now. I'll keep saying it...retail as we know it is done! No way back for the high street whatever Lord T thinks!
  19. Anyone got a link to the manual for the Silca Lancer Plus please? Bought one 2nd hand and had no manual.

    Zippo lighters

    You’ll get a better finish with a carbide cutter as it cuts and you can use a wider tip ( usually 0.2mm or 0.3mm depending on font), whereas the rotating diamond still only drags through, but is a finer point for fine detail.

    Zippo lighters

    I use the brass knob with a carbide cutter and nose cone

    Link to manual

    Thanks. Thought Silca might have one on their website, unless I just can't see it!!

    Link to manual

    Thanks, wasn't essential, just like to have a look through to see if I'm missing anything or doing anything wrong.
