Since I'm going to get some keys made, I looked up Jay's posting of
keys, three of which we verified from his formulas.
Here is the posting from March 2016
Here are the formulas he posted then. I thought there were more
discussions about making an archival page, but I did not go on and look
up whether it was made up or not.
As Ethan said, somewhere there is also a 3d print STD file I believe,
but the locksmith numbers are better.

FYI - the key codes I measured previously for Data General and HP have been
cut, tested, and verified. Amazingly, my measurements were correct. So to
Use: DEC PDP-8 (all varieties), PDP-11 machines that do not use an ACE blank
Use: Data General Nova (800,1200,1220,2,3) Eclipse (S/130,S/200)
Use: Hewlett-Packard 2100A/2100S
NOTE: The codes above are listed 7-1, and all key cuts are center offset.
Still unconfirmed or need more information:
Code: (Mike Stein was going to measure his cuts)
Use: Cromemco Systems CS-1/CS-3/CS-100
