Federal 6R0 brass key.


I cut one yesterday on a Silca JC2R. Guy rang to say it wont go in the lock. Closest one I could find. Hoping it's an error on my part, left a bur on the end when grinding length or something.

Is the JC2R the right blank? anyone use different? Can't find anything in the search on here.

Yes JC2R is perfect for the federal locks (6R0).

Does his original key fit ok, has he lubricated the lock (make sure he did not use WD40), ask if he can bring the lock in for you to check.

We get this with different types of lock and when they come in we just put a drop of either Abus PS88 or Kaba lock cleaner and the problem is sorted.
