I hadnít thought of that. I presumed the replacement blade would be made of cheese, so the thought didnít cross my mind. This cobbler said she wouldnít redo it or be responsible for bla bla, I said itís fine. I wonít come back if it doesnít work. I then went back to her about 5 minutes later, cos it wouldnít work in the ignition...

She redid it a touch and boom, all was well.

Some that sell on aliexpress are happy to cut a blade from a picture you send them if required.
