This web-site supports text resizing

SMB Plating Limited has ensured that our website will allow its users to re-size the text to their personal preference.  Look below for information about increasing the text size in your web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape, AOL etc.) or on your system.  Selecting a higher font size will make the letters on the website larger (and possibly easier to read), while a lower font size will make the letters smaller, letting you see more of the web page at once.

press control and use the scroll wheel

If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel hold the Ctrl button while scrolling the wheel up and down to adjust the font sizes quickly.

Resizing Browser Fonts

Internet Explorer 5+

In the menu at the top of your browser window labeled 'View' there is an item labeled 'Text Size', which opens a sub-menu.  This sub-menu should have the items 'Largest', 'Larger', 'Medium', 'Smaller', and 'Smallest'.  One of these items should be marked; this is your current font size.

Netscape Navigator 4.x

In the menu at the top of your browser window labeled 'View' there are two items labeled 'Increase Font' and 'Decrease Font'.  Selecting 'Increase Font' will make the letters on the web-page larger. Selecting 'Decrease Font' will make the letters smaller.  Alternately, you can hold down the keyboard key labeled 'Ctrl' and then press ']' to increase the font size or '[' to decrease the font size.

Netscape 6+, Fire Fox (Mozilla - Gecko)

In the menu at the top of your browser window labeled 'View' there is an item labeled 'Text Zoom' with a percentage in parentheses.  When you select this item a sub-menu will open which gives you a number of self-explanatory options for changing your font size.  Alternately, you can hold down the keyboard key labeled 'Ctrl' and press the keys '+' or '-' to increase or decrease your font size, respectively.

Safari 1.0b

In the menu at the top of your browser window labeled 'View' there are two items labeled "Make Text Bigger" and "Make Text Smaller".  Alternately, you can hold down the "command" key (the one with the apple logo on it) and press the keys '+' or '-' to increase or decrease your font size, respectively.

AOL

AOL browser 7+ is similar to Netscape 6+ and Mozilla, while earlier versions were similar to Internet Explorer.  AOL also allows you to use any browser you want.  If you don't know what browser you're using, you can usually find out by looking in the Help menu under 'About my browser', where 'mybrowser' is replaced by the name of the browser.  Selecting 'About my browser' will bring up specific version information.

How to Adjust System Fonts

If you find the above aproach does not fix a text size problem you are experiencing it is possible your machine may have unusual system font size settings (perhaps to compensate for a high resolution display setting).  Do not adjust these unless you have already adjusted your browser fonts and are still experiencing unacceptable font sizes.
