    Michael, I just wanted to thank you again for this tip. You have no idea how many times I have altered the feed rate to .2 now, on so many different items too. Even on a coated Cross pen when I didn't want to turn the motor on, just slowing the whole thing down meant that the diamond cut through much more cleanly.

    Need help for a old watch

    Last time I asked, Jevon & Stanley said they didn't do mechanical watches. Has that changed then?

    Titan key

    Great. We'll try that then. The TN20 is in the post to you. Thanks

    Titan key

    Yes, of course. I'll get in posted today.

    Titan key

    Yes that's what we thought too and ordered some in specially, but unfortunately when you get them side by side it isn't right.

    It would appear so, yes. How do I go about moving it to the right one?

    £5.95 for a basic round tag, with whatever engraving they want, whether it's just one phone number or the whole address and two numbers.

    Titan key

    Hi Do any of you cut Titan keys to code? We cannot find a blank suitable for this one, so that seems the next best option. Unless you have any other suggestions. The number is D6124 Thanks, Valerie

    Oh wow. So it does. That is going to save so much time and aggravation. Thank you
  10. Out of interest, which would you use for engraving a nickel plated base band, a cutter or a diamond? Some of them are so hard that it's difficult to get a mark on them with a rotating diamond and I'm wondering whether a really narrow super sharp cutter is the way to go. Thanks

    shoes not collected signage

    We started taking upfront payment two and a half years ago and pretty much all our customers understand why. For those that don't have any money on them or are bringing repairs in for a friend/family member, we take a name and phone number telling them that, if they don't come back, we'll be on the phone hounding them till they do. Just wish we'd done it years ago.

    We've got a charity shoe collection bin that we put outside the door which is collected each week.

    Blimey. Even though our sign says 6 months, it's usually several years before we get round to having a proper clear out. And that has paid off a few times when people have come back for something that is still in a box on the highest shelf out the back. Some of our customers almost expect us to get rid of their shoes if they haven't come back in a week or two, and will phone to apologise for being late and beg us to keep hold of them for another few days. So they must have heard some horror stories somewhere.

    Does anyone actually do that?

    Sounds about right
