OK, I admit it, with careful consideration 20 minutes might be a bit over
the top.  

However, I was thinking of just the disassembly, reindexing, and reassembly,
not doing the complete "classic" door lock repair.

45 minutes is a record to be proud of for the whole job, replacing the pot
metal arm and rekeying the tumbler. It probably took me 4 hours the first
time, but that was before Chris had all the great info posted (including a
lot of my lessons learned) , and I just had the Bentley to go on....
