*Bump Keys are ON SALE*
my homemade key set... what's wrong with them?

anyhow, check out the keys and let me know if they look alright, or if you can make any suggestions to fine tune them
thanks for any input!

The WR5 key is very close other than the depth. Some of your other keys are missing the front ramp and the file angle was steep.
Nice pictures, I can't get a good pic of a key to save my life.

plastic ruler: 50 cents
cutting board: 1$
pretty straight forward... you can see very easily what i did.... and for the curve at the end, 30 seconds with a heat gun took care of that..... how well they will work.... i dunno.... i'll test them in about another 20 mins.... just giving the crazy glue a chance to dry (i was to lazy to hold the head on with a screw)
the one made entirely out of the cutting board has very little flex to it, and the one from the ruler has a decent amout of flex.... we'll see what happens.

However, certainly not a bad attempt at all considering so many keys were involved. Check out google for pictures of bump keys and compare your keys to existing ones.

as far as sloppy cutting on lots of the others, i think i just rushed into it to much... and was getting tired of filling.... i'm thinking i'm gonna throw away most of them and concentrate on the WR's, SC's, Y, and Masters for now... then once i get them right... go back to my shoebox of old keys and work on the more obscure ones.....
again.. thanx a million for the tips!
(lol... i've found myself thinking over and over.... why aren't i just picking these locks?)
