Hi,

 

I really should have took more photos but maybe someone can help.  I'm looking for a key to do an unidentified safe.  The internal pipe is 7 gauge so I ordered - https://nwkeys.co.uk/Product/7g-pipe-safe-3-4-ts067-7

 

However the key is too thick externally to go into the safe (see photo- left key)  The one I need is the one on the right.

 

The one I ordered has an external gauge of 3... I think the original was an external gauge of 4.  NW cant help..SKS don't reply to emails. Does anyone know if its possible to get a thinner key with a pipe gauge of 7.

 

Thanks

Buy a smaller gauge and drill out to size that's what i have done in the past.

I don't think there is an off the shelf blank with such a thin wall.
Have you measured the OD?

Oh and cut it before drilling as it will weaken the blank and possibly deform it while cutting.
