Default K R W Key Cutter

I have a K R Wilson key cutter, I also have all the Model A key codes.
After cleaning and calibration ( I do not have a after picture ) it makes perfect model A keys every time. I have the plates for early V8 keys but I do not have any early V8 Key Codes. Where can I find early V8 key codes, or what books have these codes in them. Curtis makes hundreds of code books, which ones have early V8 codes, or does someone have a book for sale.

Sorry, I don’t have the books, but love old tools and would like to see the after picture. Better still a video of it working!

Had some request for after pictures.
The first key that I made on it would not work, I miked the depth and spacing of the cuts and they were not even close to wright.
After cleaning, lubing and calibration of depth and spacing of cuts, now every key works perfect every time.
This machine works very good if lubed and calibrated properly.
