  1. can you see the needle in the hole of the needle clamp between the 2 screws, once seated correctly it should be visible through the hole.
  2. Yes, that's about what we do per week.
  3. It's not life changing by any means, we get £0.60 per parcel. As I say not a lot income wise but then engage them in a conversation and give each one a business card and the number of customer's I've had come back who have subsequently given us orders far outweighs the income from taking their parcel in!
  4. We do DPD too. Been doing it for 4 years now. Really good service, brings more people in than we expected. You can set the amount of parcels you are prepared to hold in store and set your opening hours, if you are closed for any reason you just mark the dates closed for holiday etc and it blocks any deliveries or collections. We've got a good driver who texts every morning to let us know when he's calling and we've created a whatsapp group for regular customers so everyone knows when the collection is going to be. As said above, the most hassle comes from those that either haven't read th
  5. Finally dug out the 29K manual and there is a threading guide in there too. I've pm'd a link to the file for you.

  8. Not sure of your location (we are in Gloucestershire) but after covid sank our engraving business last year I have gone back to a career I was doing 25 years ago which of all things is sewing machine servicing! If you are located anywhere near to me I would be happy to come out and take a look at this machine for you. Somewhere I have a manual for a 29K, I'll have a look for it. Andy
  9. We are selling our complete ribbon printing system. Supplied by Ribbon Print UK the printer has had a new print head in 2019. All of our ribbon stock (approx 40-50 rolls) and printing foil is included as well as ribbon clamps and medal clips. We used this to make medal ribbons and printed tails for rosettes as well as floral ribbon for local florists etc. Due to the amount of ribbon stock weighing very heavy we would suggest collection in person but I can also get a quote for a courier delivery. I have spoken to Ribbon Print UK and they are happy to transfer the software li
