ok so i made a bumpkey (SC1) and can only get 2 pins in place (i hear them click when i release tension). Also, i noticed that is easier (i get 2 pins more often) when trying to bump the lock into locked position instead of trying to unlock it...
any tips would be much appreciated :smile:

Is this an actual Schlage lock or an LSDA, etc. knock off?

Your bump key is the reason you aren't able to bump. Your valleys need to be spaced out a bit and all the peaks needed to be lowered by about 1/2 their current height.

This is all assuming you have the correct spacing dimensions.

If I we're you, I'd start all over. It looks like you've ruined the shoulder as well.

by spaced out do you mean be wider/have a flat area?
hmm...well i did that to the sholder cuz i read that the key should be able to fit farther into the lock then a normal...i also shaved some off the tip for the same reason...
but thanks for the help :) ill see if i can modify my key and if not ive got like 4 more spares...

Wider, not necessarily flatter. You're trying to replicate what the key/code machine would produce with it's cutting wheel. Your cuts are too narrow. You've got the right depth, however.

Leave the shoulder alone for now. After you've got your new bump key, use the pull back method first, once you know it works then you can remove parts of the shoulder.
