*Bump Keys are ON SALE*

For instance, my first bump took me two hours with a homemade key.
I'm anxious to hear what peoples results were.

That's why im taking your advice on making many copies to mess around with, heh.
You may want to file the bottoms of the cuts just a few thousandths more to allow for maximum pin length. I have found that it helps on all the bump keys that I have.

I have yet to get the minimal movement method to work for me. I started out last night trying the pull out method and it works usually one out of every five tries. Guess I'll just stick with what works for me.
I have a couple of keys that have been filed for minimal movement, but I made unaltered keys because pullout works best for me too.

My first purchased key was an M1, which I tried to use on a Master Lock. I tried for several hours to get the piece of refuse to work. It was poorly made, and I never got it going. (At the time I didn't know of a reputable site from which to buy such things!)
Since the M1 disaster, I made my own, again filed from a blank. The more precise key, along with some information from these forums, makes success achievable in just a few seconds, under most circumstances.
