  1. My repairs dropped year on year from the mid 2000’s but plateaued about 5 years ago giving me half a loaf instead of a full one, that was when I left administration of this sit because I realised the rest of the day I was on here. i focused on doing bike repairs and now find I’m doing 2 days work every day! I’m flat out again. I seem to spend half the day doing the shoes, watches engraving and the afternoon/early evening doing bikes.
  2. Some ideas flop some you can get mileage out off. take a look at my facebook http://www.facebook.com/cobblees and take up the 5p challenge. Enough shared nationally and it might put leather sole repairs in the public thought process

    I’m lucky my Sons into marketing and he does all my social media, Facebook, insta and YouTube he also redesigned my shop front for a specific look and has elevated the shops local image. Im lucky to have him I take advantage and in return he gains experience but I certainly couldn’t have afforded his time and energy but it would be money well spent I’ve learnt
  4. as far as I'm aware ALL silver oxide 1.5v batteries are Mercury free.
  5. my local screwfix, A board outside, good position inside. I remember a time before you could buy a key on every street corner!
  6. I've been using SiServes PR88 for a couple of weeks, its brilliant! although it comes with a "Note to Self" when it says on the pot "take a marble-sized quantity" dont take a ping pong ball amount, unless you want to do your arms as well.
  7. I get hundreds of bits of tat through the post every year, the reason the shows not expanded is because no ones got the time to sink into actually talking to or visiting people to promote the concept. there's no one "face of the show" it needs a PR person, who on the surface is running it, even if a committee makes up the effort. were's its facebook, its instagram, its twitter, its registration page, its live feed?
  8. I read Chris' pitch at the start of the magazine, saying he was coming out of the chair & agree no new blood with the enthusiasm, but they nailed there own coffin. the next generation of enthusiasts came & quickly realised they weren't going to make a scrap of difference & moved on, to late shutting the gate after the horse has bolted.
  9. She’s got the tool right on the end of her fingers!

      sorry, i don't remember this it must have been years ago.


  11. really good in certain circumstances, but if your member of staff struggles with normal case back opening in the normal way they will still struggle with on of these. give them a bit more practice with a good quality case back tool.
  12. the battery isolators still in there isn't it?

    That’s great news. It’s nice to see the site continuing its journey with a Merry band of men. Obviously my life has changed since my days at the helm but I still follow the site regularly and am pleased it’s continuing. I see quite a few technical errors creeping in with the site build but the content and membership is still amazing. keep up the good work Rick your loyalty to the site from day one is the strongest of anyone and Thank you ababa.
