    Opsial key ID

    Lazy brits not willing to attempt to learn any of the language and too stupid to realise the key cutter probably understands enough English to get the job done anyway.

    Never understood why people want these. Why hang a picture of a dog round the neck of the dog? If you want to know what type of dog it is, look at the actual dog.

    I see the company that you got the boards from do a basic key cutting course to get you started

    Was it a cylinder or mortice key you tried? you may have a Yale patented lock where the key looks the same as the standard key but has a slight difference that often goes unnoticed. If it was a 5 lever mortice lock, the B440 blank looks the same but may be too thick to go in or may not have quite cut right because of the height of the bit. Also there are a few choices on those clamps on how you can hold the key, if it’s clamped wrong it’s not going to work. You also need to check it’s not been cut at an angle due to the “rounding off” feature on this machine

    DM repairs

    I seem to remember something about Timpson getting told off about doing the repairs this way.

    I’m guessing this is the other half of safehaven locksmiths? could all get a bit awkward
  10. I don’t understand why the futura won’t cut the “c” cut the same as the original? Why can’t it do the same pattern? i think the best way to do these, when an original is available, is the a&b cuts on the futura and the c cut on a manual machine if those are the options available

    Magical transformation.

    Agreed. For £14 it’s better than having an argument and they will probably be more than happy with the outcome. Plus you’ve just made it even more rare by taking one off the market.

    The tracer seems to work using an electrical contact sensor that’s why you can’t do plastic. maybe your tracer or the key was dirty which stopped the sensor from working?

    Best key boards

    Isn’t that the case whichever way you have your machines as the keys are always on the wall behind the counter anyway?
