When the O5000-O6999 code series is used with 75 groove keyway locks, use the following depths of cut:
Use HPC card CX215 or the Ilco card 567 for 75 groove keys.
When the O5000-O6999 code series is used with 93 groove keyway locks, use the following four depths of cut:
1- .325” 2- .305” 3- .285” 4- .265”
Use HPC card CX263 or the Ilco card 2020 for 93 groove keys.
When the O5000-O6999 began using the 93 groove key, they changed the depth dimensions using the dimensions from the G0001-G3631 code series spaces and depths. The reason was that a #4 depth in the 75 groove is much deeper (less blade remaining) than a #4 depth in the 93 groove.
