Hi all,

I am in search of getting a Basta 09 Pre cut key (5 gauge) for a customer but have had no luck on sourcing it or a suitable blank to cut.

Tried an R6F but it didn't work. 

JMA said it is obsolete and they have no alternatives.


Does anyone have advice or been in the same situation and found a suitable solution?

Would appreciate any help!


Many thanks,

After the image of the keys was posted I did think that the cuts looked to be further from the key shaft on the copy, which would explain why it didn't work.

I've done a basic cut and paste showing the considerable difference in the depth of the two keys - does the copy even fit in the lock?
