  1. Cyclone. I know it's basic, but it's a good Good machine. All other cylinders seem to work a treat.
  2. Frustrating. I generally cut on genuine, but also carry jma, silca and hd blanks. I cut the same blank as what ever the customer presents me with. Still have returns. But getting better. No other cylinder blank gives me so much grief. Mike.
  3. For these pain in the arse, Chinese, cheap letterbox style keys. I keep all these keys in stock. So far it has covered all eventualities, where you can't positively id the key. You can always ( so far) find a good enough match. I charge a premium for them, and keep notes of any successes or failures. Most codes are jma. Mike.
  4. I think the last time this was on the forum, Grahamparker referred to it as "rare as rocking horse shit." That's what I've got written in my notes. Mike.
  5. Don't worry about paying. The expense is negligible. A friend also went out of business and gave me a lot of excess stock, but what is the name of your business again? Mike
  6. I could pop a bag in the post to you. Message me your address. Whenever a customer says just throw this watch in the bin, I completely strip it. You'll soon start to get a useful amount. Mike.
  7. Hate to over simplify it. I found the mustang fairly daunting when I got it. Not a huge demand for dimple keys around here but glad I bought it. I've just been using the 95° for everything so far. ( obviously not fir something like a kaba,or a double dimple, but not done one of those yet). Unless I get information otherwise, that what I intend to do going forward. Cut about a dozen keys so far, with no returns so far. Mike.
  8. Received this WhatsApp from a customer. The watch in question was "almost" definitely a fake casio. She bought it for £30 of a website. I'm very reluctant to legally confirm it is a fake, because long and short of it, I can't be 100% certain. I don't feel it would be a good idea to be dragged into any legality. Any advice.
