Have you ever bumped before?

You went a bit deep on cuts 3 and 5. 1 is just a tad bit high. 2 and 4 are where they need to be.

You messed up on the shoulder.

Google search "Kwikset Bump Key" and click "Images". Replicate what you see as close as you can. There are multiple high resolution images that you can use for references.

Picked a good lock/keyway to start out on. Kwikset locks have loose tolerances which allow them to be "bumped" easier.

Good advice, yeah using "Google Search" you can take good idea from there with lots of relevant images
