We've got the keyline retro easy cylinder key cutting machine, been a brilliant little machine, I do struggle a little with the smaller narrower double sided keys though, the clamp is a little on the big side?  I have seen that there is a 4 way clamp for the quattro.

1. Does the 4 way clamp have narrower jaws than the standard 2 way clamp

2. Can I retro fit a set of 4 way clamps to the original easy retro?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi the Retro 2 way jaw machine as basically the same jaws as the Silca Rekord Plus . 

Almost all keys should fit in the jaws as they are a " Retro " design but a really good design . 

The 4 Way jaws should fit directly onto your machine YES 

The 4 Way also will have a thinner jaw to help hold more keys .... YES

BUT 

Before spending money maybe try the smaller keys on side Two of the jaws and clamp the keys down the slots  

these may hold in better for you .

Hi thanks for that tony, we do use the other side of the jaws to cut double sided keys but I tend to struggle with the smaller keys that have "fine grooves" or even worse "fine offset grooves" ;) I was just wondering if the quatro jaws had a finer grip point on them that would allow easier control of the blank ?
