Re: Uber-Noob Section

M1 and 1092 are the same blank. M1 is the 'EZ' number and 1092 is the 'Ilco' number.

I get that,Jeff.I guess I'm not making myself clear.Other than just plain 'ol experience,can you look up a particular lock to find the blank you need for impressioning? Ok,say someone gave you a lock you had never heard of before and asked you to make a working key.How would you go about finding a blank that fit?

If you download the catalogs I gave you the link to, each is seperated by lock manufacture. So just open up the catalog that you need and scroll down to the type of lock and see all their keyways and get the number for it.

Assuming there is a manufacturer on the lock, I would go to that section in the book and start finding a keyway that looked correct.
If it's not marked, I would start with the 'A' names til I found something that looked right!

Generally you would look up the lock on the manufacturer's website. A lot of locks can have different keyways but it will give you list to start with.

For example: http://www.masterlock.com/cms/keying/keys_keyways
*edit*
The links on that page don't work but here is a mirror of it, see page 24: http://www.gobookee.org/get_book.php?u= ... 4gVSBBIEw=

Another thing that will help your search is if you know how many pins your lock is. Lots of key blanks come in a variety of different lenghts.

I appreciate the help,but that second link only comes up as html,or code or whatever that stuff is.I'm using Safari for a browser.


Try this: http://www.masterlock.com/pdfs/7000-003 ... l_7_10.pdf

Ok,that helped.Thanks

Re: Uber-Noob Section

Aside from documentation from the manufacturer, I imagine figuring out which key blank to use requires trial an error or going through the options.

True,but I would have to take the lock to the hardware store,which would be ok I guess.

You'll need a photo sharing app like imgur or photobucket. Upload your photo there then copy the url address suppliedin one of the windows. Paste that code into the replybox.

There's a thread on here that explains it better. I'll see if I can find it.
