What type is this for? Answered

I'd never seen one like this. I was wondering if someone could clue me in on what type it was for. Thanks

I think that it is intended for a "wafer tumbler" lock, where the tumblers are flat and rectangular rather than cyclindrical. Those are the cheap looking kinds of locks you usually see on file cabinets.

Many years ago someone taught me to to make a 7pin lock tumbler
lock system set up for a local key and a master key.
