ChemicalRobot's Machined Cut-Aways

So I'm trying to learn the tricks to this, so bear with me a bit. I'll be posting my cutaways that work. Hopefully in time I'll be able to present better and cleaner ones.
I will post photos on a regular basis whenever I complete one.

Cutaway #1:
A Schlage 5-pin cylinder. Being my first attempt I'd say it isn't terrible, but it's far from perfect. The shear line is somewhat visible on this one, but the last pin is hidden unfortunately.

Cutaway #2:
A 6-pin Corbin-Russwin I got from Selim a few months back. Has security pins and you can see the whole shear line.

Re: ChemicalRobot's Hand Made Cut-Aways

Here is my most recent one that I made from a lock that I got from selim's care package. I tried to go for a much more "skeletal" look on this one. It is missing the pins in the 6th chamber right now because it is a 5-pin key and I have no extra 6-pin keys.

I'm still learning what I can get away with (in regards to cutting depth) but it's starting to come along.

Re: ChemicalRobot's Machined Cut-Aways

Most recent one here. First time cutting the plug also. I'm starting to learn some nice tricks to make it go more smoothly :)

It isn't perfect, but it's probably the best one I've done so far. I'll probably re-cut the shell since I messed up a bit on the 6th pin chamber. We'll see.

Re: ChemicalRobot's Machined Cut-Aways

Thanks for the nice words, guys!
I cut a new shell for it, so now it's much more precise and free of wrong cuts. Still needs some emery cloth taken to it, but other than that it's done.

Re: ChemicalRobot's Machined Cut-Aways

Man o man! I don't think you can take much more out of a lock and still leave it in a functional state! That's beautiful!! Keep it up & PLEASE keep sharin'
