Re: dominion lock key machine

Vacuum to start, followed by windex and a paper towel. I see at least one oil cap on the mandrel and (?) one or two on the motor. Oil well with machine oil (even 3 in 1 will do). Then check cutter to make sure it's sharp and functional (try cutting a key). Replace if necessary. Cutting a key will also tell you if the alignment is correct.
I notice one screw (wing nut) is a crude replacement which you may want to get a proper part for. It looks generic so a new one should be easy to find. Of course when cleaning, the vises should be disassembled and oiled etc.
I don't own a cutter but this is common sense which I apply to every tool I restore.

Re: dominion lock key machine

Did some preliminary huntingbut Dominion has been defunct since 1985 at which time is was bought by ILCO-UNICAN which is now KABA-ILCO. I did find some discontinued key machine manuals on the KABA-ILCO site but nothing by Dominion as far as I can tell unless ILCO rebranded that model which is highly doubtful for a discontinued key machine.

Anyhow browse through the link and you may find an equivalent machine. Meanwhile I'll keep hunting.

Re: dominion lock key machine

Thanks for the info guys, after I posted I could not stand the though there was rust on something in my shop so I ended up wiping it down with oil and taking the jaws apart and cleaning them. there are 3 oilers (2 on the motor 1 on the main barring for the cutter) I have some 3 in 1 Oil for Electric motor and a detergent free Oil for the other.

Re: dominion lock key machine

little update: the cord end was broken so I went to replace it and all the insulation was broken and crumbling, So now I am re-wiring with whole unit.

Re: dominion lock key machine

Well after a few hours and dozens of searches I found absolutely nothing on your machine AW. Glad to hear you have it up and running though.

Re: dominion lock key machine

The Dominion machine was made in Montreal. Dominion Locks was a Crown asset at one point (Gov owned)

Re: dominion lock key machine

Hugo, let me know where/if you find parts for it i need a replacement wire wheel if it had one (it looks like it should have one like jeff's) and a spare set of bushings and a new cutter would not be a bad idea (my machine has cut upwards of 300 blanks since I got it)

300blanks isnt much, my cutter was chipped, so I remplaced it with a cu20 curtis cutter, larger diameter so its faster. New bushings custom made by a machinist (20$ ~) and a new belt for 4$ at the hardware store, I even converted it into a semi automatic key machine, If you want more info about my conversion, let me know by pm
