The above keyway is just one example of a Pfaffenhain keyway. They have many variations, and I don't mean V14, KV14, Y14, I mean each of those systems will have numerous sections each. One Y14 lock and key I bought did not fit into the keyway of another Y14 lock. The bow of the keys will have a tiny inscription identifying the exact profile used, can be 3 to 5 alphanumeric characters long.

Side note: The V-shape of the key does not make it difficult to clamp as they claim.

Depends on the actual profile, the machine and jaw you are using and if it has any deep cuts. I have experimented with my Y and a V section. I have the manual adapters as well as the jaw set for my Unocode 399. Copies cut without adapters or Unocode are hit and miss using a V clamp. Any deep cuts and nearly all failed.
