    Need Key for electrical cabinet door on Mori Seiki ZL15m

    As post states I need a key for the electrical cabinet doors on a 1993 ZL-15m. I am assuming all keys are the same for Mori. I prefer not to cut it off. They shipped the machine with the keys in the locks apparently and these fell out.

    I contacted Mori last week and am still waiting to hear back....
    I also searched ebay and internet.

    Any one with a spare or would mind having one made I will gladly pay.


    Thank you

    Used to be able to get into many machine boxes by turning the key holes with long nose pliers.
    Can that work?.

    Or are they actual 'house key' type locks?/

    This is actually a house key. ????

    I know I can break it but the machine looks like new and if I can avoid it I prefer not to bust the locks.

    Many of those keys are pretty standard for electrical cabinets. Look at the number on the lock, the key number should be the same, and may be available on eBay or something. These are not high security locks so really easy to pick. So just pick the lock, open the cabinet, and remove the lock. You can make lock picks out of feeler gauges.
