bear this in mind with Colin, please wait 6 months before contacting him again after giving him work to see if hes got off his lazy arse and done it yet. Then chase him 3 months later and see if he has even started it yet

As Dixie says, Don Bloxsidge is the man for engraving, nobody can touch him, haven't been able to for almost 40 yrs. And that pic is his work, you can spot it a mile away.
I just had a HD derby cover done by him, he works through a Karl Russell's chrome platers over at Hull.
