    Default Looking for a couple key blanks to fit the Yale Fidelity

    Hi Team, I am in need of a couple of key blanks to fit the Larger of the 2 Yale Fidelity push key padlocks. there is a large & small version of this series.... The 635 also takes the same blank............................................. ..slight offset only, NO RIPPLES... I have machined a couple of flat keys thin enough on the surface grinder to fit, but would rather have an offset key..I can make a die & press a couple, but only need 2 or 3..
    This key has a slight offset & is NOT the one's that I searched for previously.........donnie

    Old Yale 26 crosses to Graham 2790, Old Ilco 1294 and Keil 210A if that helps any. All are unfortunately
    l-o-n-g obsolete, see thumbnail attached.

    Default need a couple key blanks

    Yes Nathan, the 2" Fidelity, Vulcan & 635 all use the same blank....the only # that I am sure of at the moment that I need is a # 79....
    Perhaps I could weld the other cut keys closed & recut them.. once I get the lock open I use nails from a strip of nails that are used in a nail gun to make a model / profile that works, taping them together, then transfer that to a blank... a couple that I need keys for have no key identification anywhere on the lock? If you have any that are not cut too deep, I may be able to file them off & recut them, or with any luck they may just work....If you wan to part with them, Let me know what you want for them & I will send $$..........donnie
    The 605 which I need blanks for also is DIFFERENT , it has 1/2 of the bitting end rippled & 1/2 flat..

    Sorry I can't do pictures........ I have a difficult time getting them from my camera to the forum
    I have done it a few times in the past, but it usually gives me a fit

    Pete has helped me a LOT with photos of the blanks that I need & numbers also for anyone with some OLD STOCK..thanks Pete

    the 605 and baffler take the same blank and i do not have any. looking for the blanks i found some more locks that 2 of the keys fit.
    i have some 1222b flat keys that might work. cut off the end and mill about .003 from opposite sides. i think you have to mill up about 1/2" on each side.
    the 1222b almost fits in,they are .050x.360 if you think they will work for you i can send them to you,think i better hang on to the fidelety ones.
    the fidelity ones from stop to end are 7/16" then shorter in the center,not much room to cut down and cut down the stops to.here is a couple of pictures that might help
