Primus Finger Pin Decoding

So, I did not see a post on this, maybe I just missed it but regardless I found it interesting, and incase anyone else wants to homebrew a primus sidebar code they don't have to dig for ever.

I found a defcon slide that sums up the sidebar heights and offsets from center. If you want to see the rest of the slides there is a reference in the picture.
I then made a graph in excel that then plots distance from the shoulder (taking into account the offsets) and hight from bottom of key.

Ironically, the bottom part of the C1 key fits into the standard primus keyway. I know this because I just made a sidebar setter out of one and it works great! I dont have pics ATM I'll probably post pictures when I'm done with class.

Oh. Well I thought I looked there and it talked about there being 6 different pin positions but I couldn't find depths and offsets.

Re: Primus Finger Pin Decoding

Interesting to note that the latest version of this lock has a seventh position on the #5 sidebar bitting. Think they call it "Very Shallow Right", and sits directly above the "5" position.
