We’ve all seen it before, the old locksmith shops and shoe repairers where the cobbler lovingly cuts a new key using machines that need patience, skill and attention. Oh and of course the gloves to stop fingers being cut, and eye goggles to stop swarf getting in their eyes. And you are right, this would never work in a trade counter environment. ... read more >
