    Hanging shop signs

    Update. i had a letter from the council yesterday about trade waste bins for food and glass, they’re taking all the bins off the street with a deadline of 30th September. I’ve liveried my wheelie up and have been outing it at the kerb for a week or so, in the picture you can see the food bin for the kebab shop and it stinks to high heaven, when they stop leaving theirs out 24/7 I’ll stop putting mine out from 8.30-5.30. Just waiting on a visit from the council about mine, I’m sure they will not like my answer when I’m told I can’t do that...

    Butterfly PLT file

    Hi Hakeemz, Thanks for that, I have downloaded yours an will have a look in the section you recommended, many thanks...
  14. Hi guys, I do a lot of engraving for a charity for still born babies up here in Scotland. https://www.simbacharity.org.uk/ Their emblem is a butterfly, I need an engravable butterfly to put on the copper leaves that I engrave with the parents messages which in turn get welded to a metal tree. They have just made a new tree in Oban on the west coast and I have the first 16 leaves to engrave for it and one has asked for a butterfly, but I think that putting a butterfly somewhere on all of the leaves would be a nice touch. If anyone can provide a PLT file I would be very grateful. My email is lesmcbride17@gmail.com Kind regards Les...
  15. Has anyone else invested in one of these wheels?? If so. what's your impression?? I bought the fine grade one at £199.99 plus £25 for the anti corrosion fluid as soon as they came available, we do a fair amount of knives I must admit but it's showing signs of being shagged out already. Though we have probably done about £6-700 worth of work with it, still not the best investment if it doesn't last at least twice as long. The regular stone last about a year and thousands of £'s worth of work goes through them for about £140.00. There is less mess, while the diamond wheel is good it does rip them down, no need for grading and clearing up the sludge in the bottom of the trough, £200 is an expensive consumable.
