Hi Martin;
You have experienced a problem that has just started to surface. Even though the ASME committee dictated what the exact "bitting", or cutting, code that should be followed by key manufacturers, we have a problem with which direction they were to cut in. The result is different FEO-K1 keys. At a meeting in Florida last week, the problem was discussed and I'm still not sure of the solution. I will add the solution to an up-date that I will include in the community mailing. Thank you for the heads up on a growing problem.
