    Shoe repairs in India

    Is this a remainer's view of post Brexit Britain?
  3. I am readying myself to dip my toes into dimpled keys, in the next few weeks. It seems from a couple of threads on the forum, that only genuine blanks for brisant do the job. Are there any other blanks that should be avoided, and only genuine blanks used?

    Watch strap replacement

    If they don't unscrew, they must be pressured on, they probably won't survive you removing them. You could try pliers, but in reverse to exert pressure evenly outwards. I generally charge an extra £5 and replace them with threaded bars then.
  6. I really don't get many enquiries about dimpled keys, but if a buy a basic machine, would I be able to at least some of the eurospec mp10 keys? as I get quite a few enquires about these, and getting hold of the blanks doesn't seem a problem. Mike.

    ERA key

    Just recently, yes, never before. Era2, on silca failed, er-2d jma customer hasn't got back. I thought it was just a one off. Although customer had had a problem with another key cutter, also.

    I see the EU is planning on removing national veto for taxation. One of the most important factors defining sovereignty, and one of the stumbling blocks of creating a superstate. Probably the first of many vetoes to be vetoed.

    Switch on a cyclone.

    Sks tech support were very helpful. I've order a new switch from sks, under a tenner.

    Switch on a cyclone.

    The main switch on my cyclone isn't staying on. Cut keys this morning, no problems. Had a power cut, then it wouldn't stay on. Managed to use a screwdriver to keep it on, but that's not ideal. Any ideas. Mike.

    Personal help

    I tried skechers, very comfortable, but did not support my heel/ankle well enough. Made things a bit worse.

    Welcome to the forum. I guess like you I find It's funny how my wife complains about me not listening to her, then she immediately switches off when I start talk about work. Mike.
