    Broken lock without key restoration

    I love this guy's videos. He does some excellent work, and this may be his best yet. Enjoy.

    I haven't watched it yet but I bet:

    "The key is missing..."
    "I make a new one"

    Impressive. But quicker and cheaper to buy a new one.

    Yes, but less fun 😃

    Wow - Watched that then went down a rabbit hole of YouTube restoration videos ! An old air compressor, an electric jackhammer, an old Honda c50 moped - Totally uneconomical compared to buying a new one(perhaps not the C50 as they have become collectible) but makes great viewing - I love to restore things when I have time and just enjoy the process.

    Glorious. He's got some equipment there. Better than my p*ss poor collection of tools.

    very very impressive! I can only dream of doing anything close to that - I was rubbish at metalwork at school.

    How did he know what shape to cut the key?
