But only the ones who can pronounce Ilkeston properly?
Not too far away from me, actually.

But who would know where Il'son was??
Years ago, as a trainee, I stood in for the manager of Halfords there for a couple of months - I think the shop was at the bottom of Bath Street, next to the Post Office - it has taken me nearly a lifetime for it to wear off!!

When dealing with suppliers I always find I get a better response by expalaining that I'm not looking for a cheap job or something for nothing. Once they know you want a fair job for a fair price I don't have any issues.
Model engineers can be famous for knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing. I remember standing at a suppliers stand one year where someone wanted a gauge glass. The response to the asking price was "How much, I can make one for less than that...' The person was told to go away and make one then. With attitudes like that are we surprised commercial companies don't want to know?
