    I have been cutting keys for 38 years now and i am still learning. If your stuck post a photo here there are a lot of really excellent key cutters/locksmiths that will help.
  7. Does anybody recognise this safe key and which is the best blank to use it has the unusual sloped edge which i have never seen before. The total length of the key is 117mm and the inner gauge was a 7 and the outer gauge a 2 it is fitted onto an old Stratford safe.

    Buy a set of digital calipers first unless you already have some it could be a depth issue. If depth measures ok then it is more than likely left to right alignment. Did you use the shoulder stop as these could be set incorrectly use a double sided key with 2 shoulders and using the jaw as a stop point then check the shoulder stop is set correctly most are adjustable. If this does not cure the problem the cutter may need alignment if this is possible (it is on Silca machines) just use 2 genuine keys from a brand new lock and if it skims a little more from one side than the other the cutter is out of alignment with the cutting guide you will need to move the cutting shaft into the correct position. Calipers are the first tool you should buy when key cutting. I use Mitutoyo and they are superb.

    Double bit safe blank

    No it turns clockwise to open, i have managed to source a kromer blank so going to give it a go with that. Customer is only 1/2 mile away so might remove the lock and have a look before attempting to cut the key.

    It was one of the main reasons i stopped using them as it wasn't isolated incidents it happened quite a lot. If you work on your own it's fine but at the time we had 3 shops with different employees opening and putting stock away then when receiving the invoice it would come to light that there where items invoiced for that had not arrived or there special move, supply an inferior product but charge the premium price of the original goods ordered. Never happened to me while using Healey's or Colledges or SKS or Aldridges so that is my experiance and the reason i will never use them again.

    Have you never received a delivery with items missing but invoiced for them ?.

  23. Will get them in the post today for you mate.
  24. It is the way the software has been written that after every cut the machine returns to the 1 position before making the next cut. I never got a valid reason for this it is just the way they do it at Silca, keys still work fine for me so i don't have a problem.
