I am not a locksmith, can someone explain to me why you don’t see cuts like this more often? Seems like it would be a whole lot more secure, adding that OP said it was hard to pick. Every house key I’ve had rarely had cuts with depths that differed more than 1-2 – In other words I’ve always felt my homes would be incredibly easy to bump-key or pick
Does the power cord have a built in transformer / rectifier ?
You could probably just rig up an old power cord to work by stripping the rubber away and attaching them to the leads on the input
If it does have a transformer/rectifier built in, then you could look for one of those universal adapters they sold at radio shack. Usually they have converters
Check on the label near the plug (assuming it has one)
It will say current / voltage etc there
