    Default Research Machines 380Z key switch ?

    Any of you folks double up as locksmiths in your spare time ?

    If you do, could you identify this key type please ?

    Its the on/off switch for my latest acquisition and I could really use a key for it.
    I supposed i COULD replace the switch if I had to though.....

    Thanks in advance.

    RM380Z, nice. I would love one but they tend to go for too much money.

    I'd take the switch out and show it to a locksmith.

    Hi,
    On my 380Z lock I removed it and found a spot to drill through to allow disassembly of the lock. I then took it to a locksmith who made a key for 5 (might be about 8 years ago now). However the lock in the photo doesn't look familiar so might be different to my one. unfortunately. I'll have to dig my 380Z out and check.

    Regards,
    John

    Thanks.
    I bought a similar replacement lock (with keys) for 3 - just in case the locksmith option doesn't work out.

    I'll be interested in how you get on with this. My 380Z fortunately is locked in the ON position so it's a low priority fix but it'd be nice to get a key made. Local locksmiths in town just ran away.
