Yale superior cut from picture

Already done 2 and failed.

If you tried 2 and failed , why should somebody-else try and waste their keys. 

We all see the same code (cuts) on the key. 

Possibly a problem with lock rather than the keys...

I cut 2 versions with different C cuts and neither worked.

This is only my second failure on Yale/Magnum keys the other was a Superior for the Forest Cobbler when i first started doing them and i had the codes for that key.

Both keys i cut just did not look right.

I have looked again at the photos and i think i have found the problem.

I only looked at the first few photos and not the last ones as they seemed good enough but now looking again the C cuts look different on each side of the key.

I originally decoded the key as

A 2322

B 332

C 2121 but the last photo it looks like it could be 2131

I have already cut 4 keys without success so i have had one final go at

A 2322

b 332

c 2131

It will be in the post today and will hopefully be ok.

LOL hahaha. I wish I was advanced as you two. 

Mate, if you don't mind post me all the possible combinations and I am happy to give you double the money as customer is also happy to pay.

If your only going to post one at a time instead of two then put a marker on them so I can let you know which one works for an additional copy.

Having problems again with a Yale Superior.

Futura won't decode it correctly and I've tried by eye and failed :|

Anyone able to help?

So I give up!  I have tried a number of times to cut the key above and have had no success.  Used decode on the machine, plus the suggested code above (reversed) and tried a full recalibration of the machine and now I will have to refund the customer.

Any suggestions welcome ut I think the Futura is just not up to the job for some reason.  I have had really mixed results with these.

I have 2 locks here 1 Magnum and 1 Yale superior that i bought for practicing on, do you want me to send them to you to practice on ?

Also consider trying other blanks, i only use Silca now for all these and do not have any issues.

I can send a few Silca blanks for you to try as well.

Graham that would be a fantastic help.  Please can you?  Tell me how much the postage and blanks are and i’ll settle up with you.

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
