Update on results, the asec kite cylinders are almost  perfect.

However, the pins are not the same as the pinning kits as we have in the workshop,

we have contacted Aldridge, without any success as yet.

As the GeGe key blank fits the profile are we right to assume that the pins required are also GeGe.

Will the HPC universal pins fit Keith. What diameter are the pins ?. I’m in Jamaica till Tuesday if you don’t get sorted give me a call.

I have many pinning kits including the Labtech which caters for 20 different brands.

Unfortunately, none are suited. All too thin.

I need a replacement battery to measure the diameter with my digital calipers.

I am guessing a screw in cylinder is a mortise cylinder ?

if no proper pin kit or pins to fit,

if the pin chamber diameter is just short of the pin diameter you can in many cases use a number drill bit of the proper diameter and carefully enlarge the diameter of the pin chambers,

I have done this more times then I care to count for offshore cylinders / plugs that have undersized pin chambers by 1 or 2 thousands of an inch,

I tighten the bit into a vise horizontally and carefully spin the plug onto drill bit by hand,

so basically measure pin diameter, choose a number drill bit of the just over closest diameter which is usually within 1 or 2 thousands of an inch and enlarge the pin chambers
