Hello
I specialize in YALE (as they seem to be the most common in my part of UK). Also as I keep saying (almost everywhere) they only need FOUR cuts to work - for that reason I call them CANDY KEYS (as they haver a tooth missing)
contact me if you want a key/advice or anything

YALE keys are almost impossible to find. What you do is find a hardware store that cuts keys with a manual machine, and tell the guy to cut them all the way down. As bumpfiend said, you only need four cuts.

At last, (see above) someone else knows the score: to bump a five pin tumbler you only need FOUR cuts, as the last pin nearest the entrance only needs to go up, not down. This isn't just aesthetic, the key is stronger as it avoids that deep cut right near the shoulder - a point of breakage with previous bumpkeys.
I have drawn a (rather crappy) but informative diagram to illustrate this but don't know how to post it. If anyone knows can they tell me?
Nice one
