Today I mailed off a couple HP 2100A/S front panel keys (they are the round
tubular "security key" type) to a fellow listmember in need. I thought I had
a whole box of them, but it turned out virtually all of those were DEC keys.
So I had 3 copies of the key made today (two for the listmember, one extra
for me). When I tested them before dropping them in the mail, 2 worked and 1
did not (of course, I sent off the 2 that worked to the listmember).
Since I have to go back to the locksmith to get the 1 key redone, I thought
I'd offer to get keys for the 2100A/S made for anyone that wants them. I
guess it is possible that your 2100A/S may use a different key, but at least
every 2100 I've come across uses the same key. The locksmith charges $8 per
key, and figure $2 bucks for shipping. I'll probably head back to the
locksmith Monday so if anyone is in need, let me know.
Please note - the keys for HP 1000 aka 21MX M/E/F are completely different
and not what I'm talking about here. Just the 2100A or 2100S. But I guess if
anyone needs keys for those, I can get some made as well. If it's for a 1000
or MX key, let me know if it's a M series (dual edge key, switch has standby
position) or E/F (single edge key, not a switch just a front door latch).
