  5. Is there such a thing ?. I am a practising bench locksmith of 35+ years i tried to join the MLA 30 years ago but was rejected on the grounds i did not know anyone, now all you need is cash and your in. I tried to join the ALA about 10 years ago and was told i could not join as i was a Garage in Birmingham (Duncan at Hickleys witnessed this). I have no certification as a locksmith at all and it makes no difference to be honest. I have worked for the Police,MOD and many other government institutions without any certification. There is currently no licensing for locksmiths in the UK, due to the government not wanting to increase the legislative burden on small businesses. In Ireland, there is a government based licensing scheme run by the PSA.

    Funny that as my dad says he was advised by Standard that the Power machine was the way to go and the best shoe machinery available, he was taken on a factory tour at Standards expense back in the late 80's ealy 90's before spending over 20k on a new setup.

    We have a power finisher and having used both a 700,710 and the Power unit i would say the Power machine is better but also a lot more expensive.

    Abus Extra Classe?

    Cisa and Abus did at one time share a factory so Padlocks like the Abus 85 series use the same pin depths and spacings as the Cisa 22010 range so there locks and blanks do cross over a ot of the time. The key pictured looks very similar to the Cisa Astral but i think it is actually the blank for Abus 96TI series or the Silca AB62. https://www.aldridgesecurity.co.uk/abus-0242-abus-key-blank-to-suit-titalium-96ti-padlock-series.html#simple-24026 https://www.aldridgesecurity.co.uk/silca-3670-silca-ab62-dimple-key-blank-to-suit-abus.html I have some German Abus Extra Classe blanks but they are completely different.
