  1. I've already have a viper that covers & a couple of dimple machines & a HPC blitz , I've see that there are a few of these come on the market with Hickleys & NW keys as failed HP agreements & seem a good price . I was wondering if they'd be a good choice for the occasional dimple key & locker key to code & as a back up , Or wait until I see used silca Futura or keyline Ninja ?

    I didn't realise that about the VW keys from what year ? Can't Silca do an update like the one they did for the Edge kit ?
  4. Since doing a bit of home work It seems that if you do these updates it messes the machine up , this is my 2nd machine the first one I just thought was faulty & this one has frozen after the update so my advice would be , do not do the update .

    If you see a Silca Viper going with an Edge kit I's snap that up ,Some people sell theirs to fund a Futura but if you are only doing car keys the Viper is a more robust machine .

    Laser machine

    I saw a Silca club machine on Ebay for about £200 the're a good little machine .
  7. hi , I've just tried to do an update & now the screen has frozen on USB Boot V9.7 (HID) ..what ever that means ?
  8. Does any one have a manual for this machine please .
  9. Buying used considerable savings can be made especially if not vat registered ...but is it s false economy when it comes to the computer operated versions .. as I know nothing about the reliability of these machines ,Umarq etc .

    Anyone have any comments on these machines .

    Buy new or used

    The warranty on the Umarq looks pretty pathetic to me .I might check out the Roland stuff .
  12. I've been using a Silca Bravo for over 17 years now & I like it more than the newer versions .
  13. I haven't heard great things about buying stuff on this site , But I've seen something , I'm going to ask for the serial number , If they have a paypal account & demo video .Has anyone have any experience with this site ? . Cheers.
  14. Is this still for sale

    HPC Blitz wanted

    All my cards are in numerical order I mainly use the HPC for locker / garage keys & all car keys on The Viper that's considerably quicker than the Futura .

    HPC Blitz wanted

    Great machine , there is a Youtube video showing it cutting a locker key 5 times quicker than a Silca Futura .
  19. Has anyone seen the price reduction on this machine ? Just a shame it doesn't work with Insta code yet .

    JMA Multicode

    This is the reply I got from Insta code , That seems to go against the info I got from SKS ? "We had communications with JMA in March 2017 regarding communicating with this machine. Funny thing is we heard from them again a couple of days ago. I’ve been advised it isn’t a small job because of how the machine works but we are reopening discussions with them on this".
  21. Any of Dave Fotheringhams machine are ;)...The Borkey lords machine is pretty good as well.
  22. anyone have any experience with this company .?
