Never seen one before. Is it an upside down version of the Little Duke? !PUZZLED!
Are they rare?
Does the same company make other models? :didact:

Hi,
I just got one of these BDR bandits - the bread bin !! as some like to call them.

Does anybody know where I may be able to get keys cut for Union lock number GKK 14?

Fishmongers ... you need to go to a Fishmongers.

No, I didn't mean Fishmongers I meant ...ermm... what do you call them? Keymongers, that's what you need, a good professional Keymonger.

I also put "Union lock keys cut" into Google and got THIS however I don't always trust Google I once put Bakewell Tart in and I swear I recognised her.

Congrats on your acquisition they're great machines and I believe they are underrated.

Hi Badpenny,
Thanks for the advice, I like the machine. It would have been nice to have a manual for it, but I bet they are like hen's teeth.

You be careful with google & those tarts. lol
