Basically I'm trying to produce a scratch record for personal use, so I was wondering whether anyone knows where I can get a test press done in the UK.

I think a test press is around 15 copies which I am prepared to pay for so any comments/info would be helpful.

Got a reply from lowliferecords and I got the following quote...

Cutting Lacquers 12" 2 sides £180.00
Processing 2 sides £120.00
20 test pressings £ 30.00
delivery £ 4.80

sub-total £334.80
+ VAT £ 58.59

TOTAL £393.39


Ouch, I thought it was gonna be half that!
If I can drum up some more people to buy one I may go ahead with it, otherwise I'll hav to find a cheaper quote.

Try Transistion Studios
...
They'll cut your laquers for about £130
then go pick 'em up and take em to a big pressing plant such as MPO or AGR and you'll get better value for money
