well u can tell that u did not buy it... u tried to make it...
all of the bumps or w.e u call them are all uneven and seem to be different heights... also try to smooth it out


file the tip down further and the shoulder... but basically i think your pins are too messed up :(

ok ill try and smooth out the pins and try and make them the same height. Also does anyone know where to find a tutorial of how to do the minimal movement method. I looked at the toool one but couldn't make much sense of it.

trial and error..... or look at the what the bump video. also, you should try to smooth that out, but like they say in the what the bump video, the key is softer than the pins. Often it will correct itself ( i have gotten a key that looked like that to work)

on the key, after bumping it a few times, you can look at the sides of your peaks and see dimples from where the pins are hitting. If the dimples are really low on the peak, file it deeper. Try to judge by where the dimples are to where you should modify further ( I made a few homemade keys, and that worked for me) Hope it helps

Your key need more filing and you may also file the shoulder, the valleys must be wider and the edges must be steep rather than pointed. If key doesn't have enough space you need to file tip and shoulder too.
