    Key ID

    Always best to look at the profile displayed rather than a picture of a key. The SKS picture is of a VI-1D but the profile is VI-7

    Description please

    Customer - "How much is a key?" Staff - " Depends what type of key it is" Customer - "It's for a lock" OR Customer - "Do you cut keys?" Me (on a bad day) - "No, we just have all these hanging here for decoration" Sometimes you could just scream.

    Marine grade stainless steel would be a better option.

    SKS prices

    I thinned the hook, but I also I found that this key the hole was too small irregardless of the brand. I never send faulty keys back, not worth the effort or expense, just don't order again that particular key from that particular manufacturer. This applies to any of the main suppliers.

    SKS prices

    I've had what I think is a bad batch of Guardian mortice keys from SKS - the bits seem to be welded on in the wrong spot - leading to an asymmetrical duplication of the cut. I haven't told SKS because other times when I've tried to raise the issue I've got nowhere. Like another problem whereby the SKS branded ERA 3 lever RH keys don't fit onto the SKS hooks! I have to get my drill out and ream the hole a bit bigger. Mentioned it to SKS over a year ago - problem persists to date.

    Old cabinet key marked "20"

    The time I applied for the Aldridges account I already had trade & credit accounts with CB, DP Burgess, SKS, T colledge and few other suppliers, but Aldridges still refused to open an account for me. I am no longer interested anyway as the above mentioned suppliers good enough to keep my business going.

    Key ID

    So when a member of the forum who has some of the best knowledge about key cutting suggests a blank and you reckon it doesn't look to be the one then why ask in the first place. If you actually look on SKS website it lists the Silca VI13 as the exact same blank as the JMA one so why does it not look to be the one ??.

    Description please

    The problem is you have to shift a lot of this stuff to justify the retail space which is almost impossible, but then without it you haven't got it to offer and your rapport on repairs may suffer which is the only reason why I haven't stopped selling the stuff.

    Why not ask Timpson if they want to buy their old Jakey Colt back?
