Antique warded church/cast keys

Below is an example of a service we have been offering for many years, the making of a key to operate an Antique warded lock.

The first step is to source a key which matches the diameter and internal dimensions of the lock.

The central and small internal bottom wards are then cut.

We now cut the larger top internal ward.

After cutting the external ward the collar is adjusted and all other wards are tweaked to suit the imperfections found in a lock of this age………..we now have a working key.
