I finally got around to trying to get my steel blank cut and wish I had remembered this thread. I tried my local Baldinos who too could not cut a steel key. They had a book listing X157 or LF17 for a 1995-2003 Defender (LOL) but didn't have any in stock. They scoured their inventory and cut a key X51 AA2 which initially didn't work when I tried it at home (i wasn't driving the D90), but after a close examination and a few minutes on the bench grinder does the job.

Of course while digging around looking for the tuffy spare keys to make up a full spare set, I found my other spare key for the defender. Now if only I could find the tuffy spares!

I actually just did this last week. Ordered two blanks (with logo) from Rovers North and my local locksmith (Austin, TX) was able to cut them easily.

I didnt save any of the part numbers. You may be able to call RN and ask them. Or there are some old threads saying that Rovers Down South carries them. I ordered some very elusive torx bolts recently from Rovers Down South and he was excellent to deal with. Or you can buy them at the following ebay link: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Land-Rove...8ae55cf&_uhb=1

hope that helps

I tried this the other day, didn't work for me. They tried three times but couldn't get it right, it looked like the groove in the center of the key was not as long as the original.

I had an ignition key made this evening at Home Depot (97 90ST), they used an Axxess 41R. It's slightly longer than the factory key but it functions perfectly, plus it cost less than $3.

I have one of those too ... Was thinking if you shortened it by 1/2 inch or so before cutting it would be perfect!

Remember the IMPORTANT length of the key is NOT it's overall length !!
The important length is measured from the tip of the key, back to the shoulders, the 90 degree area where the height of the blank increases on BOTH sides by about 1/32". This length is actually what engages the parts inside the lock to make it function.

Both these keys work ... Mind you so you likely so would a wooden spoon.
