    Request for keys

    Many thanks Graham, that is fantastic. Could I have a couple of hundred off you. No need to worry about what blank they are, they will all be thrown in a tub for the players to try and find the only one that fits! I'll PM you our address. Kind regards Andy
  3. Hi all. i am on the scrounge!! We are holding our annual Christmas Market in our town on Saturday 24th November and being involved with the event I am providing a 'door key tombola' for the events' fundraising stall. Basically we have made a perspex box with a hinged door on the front that is latched with a yale lock. An expensive bottle of spirits will be locked inside the cabinet and customer's then pay to pick a key from a tub of random keys, the tub having just one that fits the lock. Now for my request, I am looking for a total in excess of 100 keys to put in the tub to complete the tombola so I am after your rejected keys and keys that you would normally just throw away (or whatever you do with them) doesn't matter what blanks they are as long as they would fit a yale type lock, part of the game is to firstly try and find a blank that fits the lock let along one that actuaqlly opens it. If anyone has any spare cut keys we could make use of I would be grateful. Just PM me for the address. Being a charity event we cannot offer to pay for the keys but I will personally make a donation to the forum charity for any donations kindly received.

    Engravable House Shaped Keyrings

    U-marq also do a range of 32mm coloured aluminium tags. Perhaps these can be used as a keyring.

    Trend, Swatkins and Trophy distributors all the way for us.
  9. Who is the best supplier to get Silvo, Brasso, Peek, cleaning cloths etc from for resale?
  10. Agree with Mr Bargy, definitely light touch cutter knob and slow down the feed rate to about 0.3 m/min. I also run the speed at about 10,000 - 12,000 rpm. 17500 seems a bit fast to me thus causing skipping and possibly heat issues maybe. Mr Sheen for lube, magnolia & cherry blossom at the moment (makes the workshop smell nice too!!) Finally, agree that when a cutter goes it just goes without warning. Pantograph services can also re-lap faceted diamonds, not had one done myself but always worth knowing. Kind regards Andy
  11. Not sure if I have dreamed this but was sure I saw somewhere on here that someone does diamond cutter re-grinding although can't find the post now. Looking to get a couple of faceted glass diamonds re-ground. Any ideas?
  12. Definitely Glenway, after having a snoop around at the source code of the trophiesnextday.com homepage, found a code snippit towards end of the page. Enough said.....

    Gravograph Russian

    Not used Gravograph software but when I have been asked in the past for russian text, I ask them to type it out themselves and then send it to me as a jpg and then I engrave it as an image, that way it stops any chance of grammar errors etc. Also do this when I am asked to engrave arabic text.

    Large plinth band

    I use a silversmith to make bespoke plinths for me. If you are interested in the cost of a bespoke silver/nickel plated band I can ask him to quote.
