  1. Got this one in. The Tel. number on it seems to be from an old chain that are no longer trading. I don't have much knowledge of these old abus keys. Can anyone help? Is there a corresponding blank or a bypass key? Thanks
  2. Hi, Is anyone able to tell me the name of this type of lock? (So I can order some) It's for an old Chubb filing cabinet. The school caretaker drilled it out as they lost the keys. Thanks

    I've found them... Cheers guys https://sentryfireproof.com/replacement-lock-standard-hudson-plunger-lock.html A tad expensive (and far away) The head of the school ain't gonna like this. She nearly had a heart attack when i said "maybe about 20 quid" She'll have to make cut backs in other areas to pay that much

    Cheers ... They look close... Only possible problem Is the screw going into the back. The ones I see have a different fitting...eg https://www.easylocks.co.uk/viro-oval-bullet-lock+bullet_locks_pin_length=43mm+default_keying_options=Keyed~To~Differ?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1_iszZ6I3AIVF_lRCh3OngzbEAQYASABEgIWwvD_BwE Does anyone know if this will do the job?
  6. Hi, I've got a silca futura, but ive learned its a good idea to purchase a secondary machine for not so straight-forward jobs... So I bought the Citysafe laser machine as it has advertised the tilting jaws...A few hundred quid cheaper than the mustang i'll fly through the Yale superiors, I thought It doesn't come with any user manual, so I'm trying to work out what's what. I've not really used a manual laser before so it's a bit of a learning curve. One thing I don't understand is the angled cuts... Each jaw rotates separately, and there is no way to tell which angle each jaw is at ( I think?)... Maybe ive been spoilt with the ease of the futura... or does anyone know how this works? Is some sort of spirit level needed? I've emailed citysafe, and I'm sure they will answer soon... just thought id put it out in the forum
  7. Dog tag sales up 200 percent since his arrival
  8. I improvised a solution... But you can buy the jaws ( I believe) from China that will slot in and out of the machine that will maybe be more accurate.. Alibaba etc

    Theres a company called all locks but they're not the same. All lock website is down and Tel number is going dead even using the new dialing code .. I say new.. it was changed 20 years ago... Who is the supplier? Is it abus directly? Is there any possibility they wud fire me over some blanks given that the company has ceased trading?

  20. On the Futura, using original Yale blanks, I go through one 04L cutter (the snake part) every 40-50 keys. Never had to change the dimple cutter and ive cut about 250 superiors.
  21. Hi, Having problems with this key. It's for an 1989 xjs. I've worked out the ignition is a FO10... But unsure bout this... Apparently it's for the door. Anyone any ideas? Many thanks
  22. Hi,

    Due to demand I've created a survey platform for the data to be collected.  I have a couple of things to ask:

    The system wont let me PM you.  Can you give me an email?

     

    Thanks
