  1. Went to a job on Friday. key broken in a brisant t/turn on a front door. The wife tells me her husband's brother lives in Australia and he wants the husband do a bit of work around his flat. Unfortunately the Husband doesn't have a key but does have a 3D printer. Hubby is (apparently) a very smart dental technician, prints a key for his own front door as a tester before going on to print a key from a picture for his brother's place. The key works in his front door but it breaks when he tries to remove it. The debris comes out in 4 or 5 pieces and I tell her to get the number off

    Suprised you have not read about this before. There have been many reports about this from the MLA forums to Social Media and on here. Brisant "Locks for locksmiths" tag has well and truly been abandoned.

    Padlock key help

    So the customer doesn’t trust you enough to allow you to take a photo of their key to help them out, for a padlock that’s probably only preventing access to their garden? I hope they want a lot of them. I’d have been too offended to go the extra mile on this one.

  10. We have used both CH9T and CH16T and although they work it will not be long before the pins pop past the outer wall and jam the key in while unlocked. Thats why we stopped doing them after having to replace a lock we managed to jam a key in. Not worth the hassle to be honest.

  15. Hi all thanks for the add, Over here in Ireland we have a very popular brand of trainers called "Asics" and so being popular they're not cheap at least€80/100 a pair, I just want to share a solution I worked out, just let me say I'm not trying to teach my grandma to suck eggs, it's mainly ladies with pedicures which end up poking a hole in the top,this takes about 10 mins to do and I now get brand new trainers from repeat customers brought to me for preventative measures, I'll add some pics to show, this one needed a little "darning" but not normally the case, as I said just wanted to sha

    Get an old school centre punch from eBay like proper Sheffield steel and grind down to the size you need. Tbh I'm sure I have even picked them up where they fitted in 0.95 tube from the get go.

    I think the big crux of the problem is they're selling semi-restricted keys to people who haven't asked for them. Ultion locks are now going in a hell of a lot of doors, and the people who have these doors fit would fairly in my view expect to be able to go to their local keycutters and get them cut. They generally never asked for a key they have to order online. We get loads of Ultion keys in and people are surprised we can't cut them because we have a reputation for cutting all sorts of weird and wonderful keys, we're very rarely beaten* We'd have loved to have taken on the blank
