    Can you post a picture of the key? There were many manufacturers, and the thumbscrews vary from mfr to mfr.

    Is there such a thing as a J-38 that isn't military issue? I've got a bunch of them, but I wasn't aware that there was a "civilian" version? Learn something new every day. :)

    I'm not a fan of the J-38. The Navy flameproof key, on the other hand ...
