How to make an Ingersoll key?

I need some hints/help, I've recently managed to pick open an Ingersoll padlock, with the ingersoll core, that I've found in the gutter a while back while visiting UK. Since there was no key, now being open I'd like to make one (before I try to lock it again and play with it :mrgreen: ).
I have managed to obtain one blank that fits but the question is how exactly do I measure the cuts?
Is there a chart somewhere on how to measure the gates of the levers so that I can translate that to the key? (unfortunately I've no room for error on the key blank as I do have only one and I don't think I'll visit the UK anytime soon to get more)
Any hints are appreciated :shorthook:
thanks

Re: How to make an Ingersoll key?

Take the lock apart so you can insert the key while you are working.

Then you mark where each cut needs to be then start filing. Keep going until you get each one to the right depth. You will be able to check each of the levers as you go.
