While doing a bit of forum clean up, I found this link showing a member's alternative to drilling a lock. This was from 2013 and the member has not logged in since then. I saved the external images (which surprised me that the links were still working) as attachments to the topic but left the external linked images in the middle of the text content to make it easier reading. Posted here as possible reference/help, if needed.

This is extremely helpful. Thank you!

I am unable to find a key, or get someone who has one to trust me (even with a cash deposit) to send one to borrow. The idea being that I could open my phone, make an impression of the key for future copy, and send it back. Obviously a risky thing for the key holder.

I will give this method a try and report back, I've been unable to drill the lock, I was going to order a tungsten carbide bit as I've destroyed quite a few already.
