I believe I may have heard or read (can't remember where now though) somewhere that polished bliss do or know people who do?!

May be worth a call.......

Mick - are you friends with Pete from Design By Detail on Instagram?

He’s mates with a Rupes technician who fixed his 21 recently

Pretty sure he can help you

What's the general reliability of these machines? I'm really tempted and have been squirling a few quid away to get one but had heard of a couple of problems.

For the last couple of months it's been playing up even when it's on the mains. Intermittent power loss then it lost all gearing on Tuesday, so now it's not turning at all.

It's disappointing to hear these issues. It makes it really hard to justify the expense.

I don't have one but I think they are an absolute must for guys like yourself chongo.

If I remember correctly, Jim from White Details had issues with his on the mains power too. Cant remember what the issue was or how it was rectified.

Hopefully you get it sorted out mate
