  1. Hi Andy, Just done 2 failed WinkHaus mechs today. Both on new-builds. Both failed due to dropped/badly fitted doors. 30% of my work is new-build door adjustments. Keep it up National House Builders £££ Ching ChingπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Hi Richard. Yes they are a pretty common mech to fail! That’s great business for you buddy πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
      Thanks for watching β˜ΊοΈπŸ™πŸΌ

  2. hmm… quite concerning to see you not getting enough auto work (its something that i was interested in getting into). I’m having second thoughts now.

    1. To be fair mate, I could of pushed for more Auto work but I much preferred to do domestic work anyway. Don’t have second thoughts because of me mate. I’m sure there’s plenty of Auto work but maybe just see how much competition there is in your area to see if it’s worth it?
      Thanks for watching buddy πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜

  3. Another cracking video Andy. I’m getting so much info and tips, especially on the additional skills I need to brush up on. As for the locksmithing skills, if people want to see how it’s done, either pay to do a course like everyone else, or watch it elsewhere on YouTube. Keep up the good work mate

    1. Thanks very much Joe πŸ™πŸΌ And thanks again for watching β˜ΊοΈπŸ™πŸΌ

  4. I’m going to start calling anyone that pisses me off a little sausage.. Love it!
    I’m the opposite Andy..If I could make a living doing just Automotive I would be very happy indeed.
    New mic sounds awesome!

    1. Hahaha πŸŒ­πŸŒ­πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      That’s interesting Gerald! I much prefer domestic 😁 I always found the Auto work a bit stressful to be honest
      Glad the new mic is sounding better ☺️
      Thanks for watching mate πŸ™πŸΌβ˜ΊοΈ

    1. Ah glad audio is better! It was worth spending the money πŸ’΅
      Thanks for watching as always πŸ˜πŸ™πŸΌ

  5. Great video. Pretty cool seeing how you fix the adjustable hinges. Automotive seems so expensive to really get into. We don’t have a lot of doors here with the gearbox style full door multipoint locks, very cool seeing those worked on as well.

    1. Thanks Dave. Yes the Auto locksmithing is a pretty expensive game to get into! Glad you’re enjoying watching our different types of locks.
      Thanks for watching πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜

  6. Shame about the auto side of things , new mike a lot better , cheers Andy another interesting video.

    1. Hi mate. I’m actually pleased about not doing any auto work anymore! It stressed me out too much.
      Glad the mic is better 😁
      Thank you for watching β˜ΊοΈπŸ™πŸΌ

    1. Oh really? How? Do you have to drill it off? How would you refix it? I’d be happy to learn 😊
      Thanks Malcolm πŸ™πŸΌ

    2. @Lockswood Ltd – Andy Perrin

      Quite easy mate

      Drill out rivets on the side of the lock gearbox top and bottom then remove small pozi screw located on the side of the case towards the front face plate,

      Re rivet the new gear box on, I tend to re rivet from both sides and fit back pozi screw job done πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    3. @Malcolm Green you couldn’t post vid of the gearbox change sound more complicated than is proberly is again if you could would be helpful πŸ‘

    4. You can get a proper winkhaus removal kit with all you need but it ain’t cheap 🀣 think Duffels do the winkhaus rivets on there own to replace the ones you punch out ect

  7. tool tethering came to mind after you dropped that H5 allen so many times. good thing there was not the normal spacing between those boards

    1. Hahaha you’re correct!! The decking was way to close thank goodness πŸ˜…
      Thanks as always for watching πŸ™πŸΌ

  8. another great video andy ii was looking at the same course that you did but the set up was to much for me thanks andy

    1. @Lockswood Ltd – Andy Perrin hi andy the auto locksmiths one from alex 😊😊

    2. @Stephen Stone Ah ok!! That was a good course to get started but a few months on realised I could of done with a bit more info. However, a good course to getting started and learning the basics πŸ‘πŸΌ

  9. New mic is great improvement. You could heel and toe the door if not sufficient adjustment in hinges.

    1. Thanks Ian. The mic seems to of been a good purchase. Yes that would of been an option but we just about got enough πŸ˜…
      Thanks for watching πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸΌ

  10. You just gotta love those Mortice Jigs. A little bit of a fiddle setting up but once it’s done it produces a lovely neat job.
    Mic works great…. when fully charged πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ»
    25 to go πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ»

    1. Absolutely!! I remember when I did my trading I was saying I’d never spend the time to set up the jig!! I use it pretty much every time now 😊
      I’m getting good feedback regarding the mic so it was worth spending the money. And I can confirm I have since fully charged it 😁😁

  11. Hi you can change winkhaus gearboxes,you need to centre punch the top and bottom retaining pins and undo the retaining centre screw ,job done,you just flatten the pins back off once ya change the gearbox it limits the return journey (prices),also I find adjustments to the hinges is easier with a screwdriver mini ratchet,especially on a cold morning,less fiddling about

    1. Thanks mate. Yes I’ve seen a couple of comments now about the gearboxes!! Every day is a school day 😊😊
      Thanks for watching buddy πŸ˜πŸ™πŸΌ

    1. Thanks buddy. No worries my man. You will smash the Auto work mate I’m sure πŸ‘πŸΌ
      Keep in touch mate
      And as always thanks for watching πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜Š

    1. Ah that’s great, thank you
      I’m glad you’re enjoying them πŸ™πŸΌ 😊

  12. You don’t need to apologize to “the little sausage”, you need to block him. Big decision to dump auto. Ohhhhhh, had a bit of a nap there, let me try watching again. Are you using a milling bit on the mortise jig or just a drill bit?. Actually it looks like the bit is part of the jig.

    1. Haha I should block him!!
      I didn’t realise I was that boring πŸ˜‚ Let me know at what part you fell asleep and I’ll try not to do that again πŸ˜‚
      The drill bit is a special timber bit that comes with the jig to enable you to cut in an up, down and forward motion 😊
      Thanks as always for watching πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜Š

    2. @Lockswood Ltd – Andy Perrin I leave for work around 6 AM and get home around 6 PM. It’s very normal for me to have a nap when I get home while trying to catch up on videos.

    1. Thanks Andy. Yes I’m getting some good feedback regarding the mic so it was money well spent 😊
      Glad you are enjoying the videos mate, Thank you for watching πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜Š

  13. Another awesome video, so many questions 🀣 what key machine you got now then for your cylinders/mortice? Been looking for my first 1 but unsure what to get πŸ€” nice jig,is it any quicker with that than chipping out manually ? Thanks for sharing πŸ‘

    1. I don’t have a key machine at the moment mate and I’m still in 2 minds wether to even get one!! I might just sell the key blanks I have and not offer key cutting!! Not sure yet πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
      If I was to buy one I’d probably go with a Cyclone duel machine or an RST TM855 duel machine! But like I say, I just don’t know if it’s worth it!!

      The jig is quicker once you’ve got to grips with setting it up and used it a few times. And usually gives a lovely finish (when you don’t hit a knot!! πŸ˜‚)
      Thanks as always for watching πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸΌ

    2. @Lockswood Ltd – Andy Perrin yes they are a big cost to factor in which is why I’m struggling what to get if I bother at all 🀣 definitely wanted to have the blanks for locks I have but if no up take on extra keys it’ll will never get paid off 🀣

    1. Thanks Jay. Yes, if I’m buying the coffees he can work for it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ And he can use the Makita better than me 😊
      Thanks for watching buddy πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜Š

    1. Thanks Ben, much appreciated.
      I’m not currently offering key cutting. I’m still in 2 minds wether to get another key machine or not πŸ€”
      Thanks for watching πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸΌ

  14. Hello mate, any chance of giving me a link to the mortising jig you used at the end of the video, cheers all the best

  15. Stepping up in the world mate bringing along your own cameraman! new mic worked well, though you paid a heap for it that works out to be over $300 Aussie Dollars. No wonder you had to sell off the Auto gear to pay for it lol Really cool watching the jobs you had on. I’ve installed a few doggy doors in my day never a cat door, owners used to think they would get killed in their sleep if they made the cats open their own doors! That mortise jig was really cool watching it in action, a bit messy, but makes a really nice cut, when their isn’t a knot, always wondered how it was done. I’m so old school I’d still be chiseling it out by hand. How you meat to cut a key for a client now you going to use the hand held lishi cutter for the odd key you will need. Thanks for this video, Have a good weekend
