If I can find the correct key blanks I can pull the numbers from the door locks and cut them myself. I do this with 111 locks now.
I'm also rather good at cutting a key from scratches on the blanks. It takes about one minute if you have the correct blank and a small triangular file.
I just need to know what type of blanks I am looking for.
