Blog June 2014

Well, it’s been a difficult month as I finally had my knee op which took me out of work for a short while.  The good news is the op seems to have been a success and I’m now getting to walk again, albeit slowly.  I’m also able to drive Guinevere to all my jobs again which is giving Excalibur a rest for a while.  I’ve missed working as I have a great passion for locksmithing and helping people out.

So, what’s new and worthy of mentioning?  Well, I do not normally have anything to do with cars as I specialise in safes and UPVC repairs but I took the plunge and purchased some car breaking in tools.  This is a new venture for me and although I have nothing to do with car keys, I can at least now get in to your vehicle for you.  Please still call me reference cars though as I can recommend a great local and independent auto locksmith to help you out rather than getting ‘stung’ by the nationals.

Before my knee op, I travelled to Peterborough for training on an upcoming aluminium window system that is starting to roll out throughout the UK.  I was one of eight specialists on the course learning how to repair the system.  It’s an aluminium sash window system by a company called Clearview with their system known as Alumatherm.  Essentially it offers the beauty of a wooden sash window, so authentic looking, it can be installed into graded/listed buildings but with the thermal and sound protection of UPVC windows.  With its many patented parts, it’s a fantastic system being installed into many new government buildings as well as many new builds.

Lastly, I had a stall at the Plymouth Chambers Business Show on 11 June.  This was a cracking show with many great businesses showing off their wares.  Next year I’ll bring Excalibur and Lottie as my crowd pullers; Lottie gets more interest than me anyway 🙂 If you want to see more of Lottie, please add me to your Facebook or Twitter pages to see how she’s getting on.

Until next month, take care and keep safe.
