A new job i have picked up has a large number of MK keyswitches but no keys. They are the standard older style grid & at first i thought the normal fishtail key would fit, but the keyhole is much fatter and has a round hole at the centre.
The normal fishkey MK 3405 ZIC does not operate them, neither does crabtree and a few others i have tried. No part number on the switch. I have been told these older switches key may have been a T shape and you inserted and turned ?
I am guessing installed 60s to early 70s, anyone remember these or any pics even of the key
Ta, Richard

Have you phoned MK technical?

Failing that, you going to have to replace the whole face assembly.
