I'd say ERA(wickies DIY) - top

and agree with Henderson bottom.

excellent folks 8)

now how about helping me with this one? it's a century 4 1/2 gauge but it's not in my dav burg book.

we've cut two for the customer but neither have worked, he says they won't go in :shock:

checked the bit, checked the gauge and they marry up so i have no idea what the problem may be.

Those things are a nightmare Rick.

 

They have been around in my area for quite sometime.

 

I was cutting them on a 5 gauge some worked , some were returned. I cut some for the woman who works for me.. same blanks.. 3 out of the 5 worked. 2 refused to go in yet they were from the same packet of blanks. I tried more and still had probs. In the end I went round to her house to see for myself what was causing the probs.

 

Turned out that the weld was the problem. The slightest excess of weld was enough to cause a problem. I now also cut them on 5.5 gauge. Since then I'm glad to say no probs.

the old brass coloured steel chubb blanks can not remember the no. maybe 179b rst can get you out of quite a few probs for the above key and those awfull eurostar or somethink mortice blanks if you still have any floating around, but you gotta be old school to remeber what i'm going on about..
