Cheers Kevin, i will do that. IF, (only if) these are correct there half the price of wittners who seem to want 40 pounds which is way OTT.

Wittners charging more for identical cine gear than anyone else is no surprise to me - have a look at the other PEC film department web pages too - splicing tapes about half the Ebay re-seller prices:

Blimy, yes i see what you mean, they reply so quickly to an enquiry, and i am now buying a brand new U blade for my 16mm CIR for just £27 instead of Wittners £40 + postage. Thanks for pointing us to this firm. I must admit i never heard of them before but love there website. And the prices.
A new blade will be just in time for me as i am going to do a nice bit of work on one of my features [Wink]

Splicers of Phil e Kevin are de luxe models with few or not data are available, but, as far as I know, they are not amatorially modified, but left the factory as they are (as said).
One thing that testifies to this is the space to insert the tape: a 16mm or 35mm tape would not enter in the gap. I've never seen this model live, not even here in Italy, but Kevin or Phil can confirm this detail.

@Robert and Nantawat: did you managed to reduce the problem of the tape not cut? My splicer after cleaning still does work, but I have to give more force to the cut.

Hello Luigi,
I found it gave a better cut when I used the retaining clips on mine; not sure if all models have these. Still getting some tape which has to be trimmed with scissors, but not every time, and not as bad as before.

I have to try with the retaining clips.
On the Cir / Ferrania I know two types of clips, like splicer on this thread, long clips, and another type, more shorter (and very fragile!), that I have.
These:
