    Thanks for the effort Nathan.
    Are you interested in selling any of those key blanks?
    If so, PM me and give details. I live in Toronto, Canada.
    I am not in a position to make new keys for these locks yet as I'm only starting to get a handle on the technique of how to impression keys and I wouldn't want to ruin hard to come by key blanks.
    I have read a lot and watched a number of videos but have only tried it a couple of times. I'm waiting for key blanks for a few Master Locks that I have and them will try on more advanced and more difficult locks.

    I believe all the variations of Ilco 1014 have two shoulders. It is available in a longer 6-pin version, 1014A; and was also made in 7-pin, 1014AA; but that one is l-o-n-g obsolete.

    Thanks you very much Nathan.
    That is a nice lock.
    How long does it take you to make a key for it?
    I have a number of the Yale Standard padlocks in various sizes, some open and some locked.
    I am struggling to learn how to pick them. I have read the write up in Lauren's book and a couple of others on the internet but still can't open them. It sounds so easy when one reads a write up on the procedure.
    I'm still in the early learning stages but the struggle is fun though discouraging at times.

    some pick easier than others,but needto be picked for dissassembly, if you impression the blank then they do not hasve to come apart unless there is a problem. on this site i seem to recall a break down of the 853 standard. to me the gentleman did a very nice job and his details were great.
    this 877 had no key and the locking spring is broken .

    The laminated Master padlocks are not always easy. There are many experienced locksmiths who have trouble with them.

    So BBE, which padlocks would you recommend that a person begin with when starting out to hone their skills in impressioning?

    Any solid body, non-high security padlock should be fine. Just stay away from laminated locks that have a floating cylinder.
