DOG , SP was spot on about going to hydras jaws direct ,
I sent 2 lads with the machine to calabrate and they got the tie pull test course with certificates and the machine calibrated for the same cost as Leechs charge to calibrate it alone ,
All leechs do is send it to hydras jaws and put their mark up on it .

Is your machine Hydraw jaws ?

Better to buy the Hydrajaws machine as it comes with a proper traceable calibration certificate and the Leeches does not. We bought a Leech machine and the safety man asked to see the cert and said it wasn't worth the paper it was written on and the clock doesn't have a max pointer.
We sent the machine back to leeches and got our money back and bought a Hilti which is made by Hydrajaws anyway.Dog was ripped off if he paid £1100 but thats leeches
