Another auction find

Here is what I got on an on-line auction most recently. A Curtis 2000K automatic key machine plus the blue, double sided key rack with approx. 2000 blanks. That is what was pictured on the auction site. What was not pictured was inside the rack that surprised me. The usual key stock order forms,more blanks and not 1, not 3, not 8, but..........13, NOS, still in the manila envelope, CU-5 cutting wheels. Also, 1 sharp 23RF and numerous machine spare parts. The machine had been in Canada at one time as the envelope is dated 11-80. It also had paperwork in 1990 from a hardware store in Eau Claire, WI. Somewhere it crossed the border. The machine was in need of some minor parts but I have 2 parts machine for the repairs. One box of keys was made in Montreal Canada. I had never before heard of 'The International Key Company'. Sorry, the pics are not very good. The machine and keys cost $81 including buyer's fee and tax.In all the years that I have used, bought, sold and repaired Curtis 2000s I had never come across the 'Problem Solver' booklet until now. It lists 9 problem areas that may need troubleshooting during the machine's lifetime.
