MOST of the other PDP machines use the XX2247 key, which is a tubular one.
But, THIS thread is about the weird one that is NOT tubular.

I have a few padlocks that use tubular keys.  I've been considering 
rekeying them to XX2247, and using one for my shed, since I don't think 
that the thieves around here are into obsolete computers.
I've never re-pinned a tubular lock, so it might be fun.
