Incredibly slow and picky work but there’s also a kind of zen to it. My key didn’t work the first time I tried it but after a bit more careful file-work I got it to open my front door deadbolt! Original key still works too. đŸ™‚

It’s a little stiff in the lock still but that’s fine. I’m incredibly impressed that it worked at all!
