To lock the forks on mine, I turn them all the way left, Push IN on the key, then rotate it back. IF you're pushing in and turning back and the key isn't moving, try wiggling the bars a bit.

And yes, they're lovely machines. Did you buy new or used? O, also, lots of good stuff there on the 50's and their earlier siblings.
