What's the average time for something to be framed at a picture framer?

Took something to Rays on Hackney rd a month ago now, still not done it.
I thought I was being considerate taking it to a local company but seems like a piss take now. Cunt closes at 3pm everyday too.

Anyone recommend a really good a trustworthy framer in Manchester centre or NQ
Have some expensive pieces to frame and don't really want to let them out of my sight for more than 24 hours and will struggle with insurance issues if I do…
I assume a good framer will let you take a piece down to be measured and assessed, then taken home whilst they order materials and on the day you can take it and they turn it around for you in 24 hours?

@ themistake; this is the busiest time of year for Ray. This is the time of year that he's framing stuff up for all the art students. I had to wait 3 weeks for a mirror that normally would have taken 3 days. He's a top bloke once you get to know him. He should have given you a heads up though.

Also he opens at 7am so a 3pm close is alright by me

Anyone got a Dyson fan?

After last night looking to cop, is it quiet enough to sleep with it on? I assume its incredible?

There was a Dyson fan in the hospital room I was in last week. Didn't even know that it was on, it was silent and kept the room lovely and cool.

Yeah I got one of the new ones.

Settings go 1-10, i can sleep on settings 1-5, anything over that then it's just like a normal fan.
It's ok, at the end of the day it's still a fan. Blowing hot air around your room.
It's just a damn sexy fan blowing damn sexy hot air around your room.

Send it to Sony, it's cheaper than £95 - I got quoted around about 40 bar but after a bit (well, a lot) of to-ing and fro-ing they replaced it free of charge.
