  1. Never come across a 5 pin Yale patented other than for the 1109 Cylinder. Must be for the 30/30 Euro as this would need a shorter key than normal.
  2. That's the T series keys Bob. I believe the A series are the ABA pagoda keys that the blanks have just been stocked by SKS. JMA ABA-1 I Think replacement locks are the best way forward https://www.zoro.co.uk/shop/storage-and-handling/spares-for-roller-cabinets-and-tool-chests/locks-and-keys-for-tool-chests-cabinets/f/73248
  3. Use masking tape prevention is better. When dried you can carefully (very carefully) use a Stanley knife to lift the glue from uppers but only as a last resort.
  4. I believe Silca WJ1R will do this or the Gatemate key blank as a shorter option.
  5. Might be possible on a Cisa 22010/60 or Abus 85/60 sub assembled (both are compatible with each other). Or possibly any of the Abus 83 series. Depends on pin spacing. You would then need to use the universal pinning kit. I have done many jobs like this in the past and unless you have every key present you cannot guarantee all keys will work. Best option is as mentioned above get a 35/10 half and a federal/Brisant body to suit or a 30/10 and an Abus 86/55 (although i believe this may be discontinued) but i have 2 in stock that i bought direct from Abus UK. You could always use a brand new Maxus padlock, punch down the holding pins on the side and drill out, then replace the pins as required but use Cisa bottom pins/springs and bungs to seal the padlock then use a smooth band on a finisher to get a nice smooth finish. Or Buy a new padlock in a keyed alike variant then cut new keys knowing full well you can order a new of the shelf padlock to match in future.
  6. Not suprised with the prices they charge.
  7. Usually the 95 degree cutter.
  8. We use the same cutting card on the Triax but if they don't work we manually duplicate using the Mustang.
  9. I know one of our competitors used to have one and we ripped of hundreds of them and replaced with a proper trophy plate. Although cheap not everyone is a fan of them.
  10. I wonder how many companies called Cobblers and keys exist in the UK ?.
  11. Yes all WMX keys start with an X. Getting keys is easy just become an Ultion Stockist. If you mean copy blanks well you may have to wait quite a while.
