hi,
Having created my key i have set about creating an automated tool for
hitting it with the correct amount of pressure without the use of a
hammer/screwdriver/stiker. But ive yet to have any success.
Ive been playing with the idea of a spring loaded mechanism with a place for
the key to be fitted while pressure can be applied to the correct
rotation direction and the spring takes the place of the striker. Has
anyone perfected such a device ?
cheers

This is the same device as in the video from this website:

Here's a breakdown. It's simple and self-explanatory. It's not the best-looking tool and there is tons of room for improvement, so someone improve it or build a better one and tell us how you made it.

I took a file and filed grooves for tension as you can see in the 4th photo. When I did this the key wanted to slide into the pipe so I took a hammer and beat in the sides a little.

I also clipped the end of the spring to make it easy to change keys.

Materials used:

3/4" x 3" Steel pipe nipple
3/8" x 3 1/2" Steel pipe nipple
7/16" x3 1/2" x .047 Spring
1 hex nut from my Garage

That is cool because it is really confusing about the pressure applied with hammer. So automatic striker will work better than manual strike.
