I've lost the key to a ride on lawnmower and was wondering if anyone who has one could measure a couple of dimensions, as in the picture added, so I could have a go at making one. I'll order another one today, but that won't arrive for some time.

I've got a countax machine with this type of key but it also starts with a flat bladed screwdriver so I don't think sizing is critical.

Just found one to check, A is 6.5 mm, B is 3.5mm.

Haven't tried a screwdriver. I know you can hot wire them but trying to make another key would at least give me something to do over the weekend in the garage

Thanks for all help. Managed to file down a window lock key to the shape, with the sizes tris supplied and it's worked a treat.
