Re: Unusual key

Whenever I see that key I am awestruck by the workmanship that has gone into it. The precision of the machining...they didn't have CNC machines back then!

Re: Unusual key

What a thread! Fantastic lock, I'm drooling all over it..
And that is not just a lock that is a factory original example!

Why don't they make locks like that one any more?? :( :( :(

Cost. Likely too expensive to tool up and manufacture this lock, plus the skilled labor needed.

Re: Unusual key

Duh, obviously, stupid me :)

Though coming to think about it, it wasn't sth in the public domain even in it's age. Maybe they use cool stuff at similar military/diplomatic uses even today. Hopefully :drool: Though I'm afraid those locks are probably electronic nowadays. Who knows? :)

Yes, they are primarily electronic now. You even have one, though not the latest and greatest. ;-)

Re: Unusual key

Ah yeah I almost forgot about that. Still deep inside my heart I hope there are cool, non electronic locks used at these government places, which I don't know anything about :)

The link you posted earlier was all jumbled when I read this thread yesterday. You must have fixed it?

Are there any videos of this type of lock? I found a Half Tangential lock on another site and one of the pictures in the middle right shows all of the wafers retract so the inner section can move. I wonder how the lock works when you turn the key in the opposite direction???

Re: Unusual key

Yeah. Had to go low tech and take a pic. Not permitted to save, apparently.

Another way to save something with the same security is to hit ctrl and prt sc, that's control and print screen. This will save the entire screen to the clipboard. Then open paint and hit paste and box the part of the screen you want to keep. Then hit cut and open new window without saving current screen and hit paste again. Now you have the image you want. Save as jpg and as the man said... No matter where you go... there you are....
post pic.jpg


If you only want the saved box, don't forget to go to the lower corner and move the edge of the white screen to the edge of your pic or you will get your new pic with a large white border.
Edit: Picture removed by Riyame

New a bloke years ago in the early days of computering that wanted a copy of something I had on screen from a bbs and we didn't have a printer so he placed some tracing paper on the screen and traced the image with a pencil.

Reminds me of a joke. ( Doesn't everything ) .

Did you hear about the constipated accountant? He worked it out with a pencil...

Please keep in mind that images of other websites are copyrighted material. Taking pictures/screenshots of them and hosting them on our servers can have us shut down due to US copyright law. As such, we remove any images like this.

Yeah, as much as I'd like to be able to have the pics here on our site so we don't lose access to them if that linked site goes away, if they've tried to set up their site to prevent right clicking and saving it's pretty clear they don't want the pics rehosted anywhere without permission.

Theoretically a copyright holder should send a takedown notice first, but in our litigious society many simply go straight to filing a copyright infringement lawsuit without so much as even asking for the picture to be taken down, so we need to be proactive about removing copyrighted content just in case.

Re: Unusual key

My bad... Wasn't aware of that restriction about posting pics from other sites. Won't happen again..
