    David,

    Iím finding that to be true. Iíve poked through several threads and posts including some very helpful ones from Pete but believe the series goes up to 36. I have not found any of the Q series ward/lever cuts diagrams.

    Iíve managed to track down keys for the 18 P series Corbin locks in my house but this one Q lock is providing quite the challenge.

    Good news is all of the door hardware including locks has been cleaned of 90 years of paint and re-installed on stripped/painted doors. Now that we have doors everywhere again, Mrs. PC is happy and I can take my time finding this last treasure.

    Thanks

    PC

    Just missed a batch of 80 Corbin Skeleton keys on eBay; went for $86 plus $8 shipping. The batch was all on a ring but looked like P, R and a couple other type I couldnít identify. Hopefully it went to one of the reseller and theyíll list any Q series they found.

    I placed a bid for at $85 at 4 seconds to go but got outgunned at 2 seconds. Probably best since I dont need 2 extra sets of P series for my house.

    For future reference, if you are not familiar with it; try to "snipe" bid items with Myibidder.com, has worked well for me in the past, link to Firefox version here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...rc=recommended

    Great tip, Pete, thanks! Iíll give it a try.

    Good timing, I just bought sets of four Corbin locks on eBay for a and it would have been nice to set and forget using the tool.

    Got the locks for a good price; included knobs and trim hardware. Plan on using for spare parts but had to laugh when I saw the lock are all Q series.

    May be considered blasphemous but Iím considering modify one lock to use a Corbin P 7 key. One of my P7 locks has a broken side plate and if the plates from the spares donít fit Iíll need to replace the lock with one of these.
