"This is more than a key machine - it is a key origination system" - October 1995 National Locksmith Article

 

That alone is probably the best way to describe the Framon #2 Code Machine. When you choose the #2, you enable yourself to originate almost any cylinder key in use today. Here's just a few of the keys you'll be able to cut with the #2:

"The Framon #2 is without a doubt the easiest and most accurate code machine I've ever used."

Bill Donoughue, Professional Locksmith



The Framon Depth & Space Manual is the core of the Framon #2. The keys mentioned above are only a portion of those that you will have the capability to cut. The manual contains:

Over 900 cylinder key charts
18 letterbox charts
32 safety deposit box charts

The Real Beauty Of The Machine Is It's Low Cost..... In addition to being less expensive than almost any other code machine, the year-to-year cost of keeping your machine up to date is also lower than any others: zero! Because the #2 utilizes manufacturers' depths & spaces to originate keys, all you need to do is copy new information into your book (blank pages provided).

Possibly The Most Perfect Code Machine Ever Created......

All of the extras included with the Framon #2 make it a great package. Here are a few of the features that make it a perfect code machine:

Accuracy: All Framon key machines are hand assembled and hand fit. This ensures that before your machine reaches you, it has originated keys accurate to one-half thousandth of an inch (.0005", about the thickness of a hair). This tolerance assures a perfect key every time!

Straight-In Feed: The #2 utilizes a straight-in feed approach. The straight-in feed of the #2 provides a perpendicular cut at the root of the key. The flat of the cut will always be the same depth from the left side of the cut to the right. Machines that use a pivot approach can produce keys that turn one way but not the other. The drawing at the right shows the profile of a key cut by a machine that pivots. The different shear lines from the left to the right side of the key lead to the turning problem.

Rugged & Durable: The #2 is made from heat treated aluminum and steel. The carriage moves forward on a pair of steel slides. Spacing and depth movements take place on pairs of steel pins and screws. There are no small gears to strip out and no plastic parts to wear out. We've heard plenty of stories from code machine owners who have dropped the machine off of their workbench and cut a key with no adjustments needed!

 

Cutting Keys By Measurement.....Unequalled Accuracy & Simple To Do

The #2 utilizes actual space & depth information to cut keys. Here's how it's done.....

SPACING: To cut a key, you need two dimensions: starting cut (distance from the shoulder to the first cut) and spacing (distance between cuts thereafter), both found

in the Depth & Space Manual. Shown at the right is the Schlage chart from our Depth & Space Manual. Schlage cylinder keys use .231" starting cut and .156" spacing. Starting cut is set by zeroing the machine and counting out to .231". Once set, the the spacing block with .156" is aligned. Cut to cut spacing is a simple matter of aligning two index marks.

img microm DEPTH: Depth settings are made in .001" increments by means of a micrometer. Reading a micrometer is quite simple - the depth micrometer on the #2 Code Machine is shown to the left. The micrometer depth reading is what gives the #2 its' extreme accuracy. Once familiar with the machine, you'll be code cutting keys in 30-45 seconds.

The Machine That Started It All....

The Framon #1 is the predecessor of the #2. The #1 has a fixed spindle instead of a tilting version. If you're just getting started and don't plan on cutting Medeco or Emhart keys, the #1 is the ideal machine. It can originate almost any cylinder key in use today except, of course, Medeco or Emhart.
