I must be really, really inept. I cant even take the REAL key for
a master padlock, pull it out one notch, smack it with the back of a screwdriver while applying 'turning' pressure with my thumb and open
the lock.

It is my understanding that if you use the 'pull out' method you do not
have to file the shoulder or tip.

If you Do file the shoulder and tip you keep it in the lock, but you still pull it out a notch and smack it. OR do you keep it in the lock all the way and smack it.

Either way, I smack my thumb more times than the key and I can tell you that it really smarts.

So, any suggestions would be appreciated.

I assume that you are on a right track, I mostly use minimal movement method but the point you discussed is right.
