    We lost a key to the rv and have tried loads of locksmiths to get a replacement, but no blanks were available. Today in Peterborough with nothing better to do went into Timpsons and they have a machine which can make any blank (from a key) and cut a key for you. £12 and takes about 15 minutes and they have these machines in several branches around the country.

    That's brill Jan.

    Can they make any key from an original?

    I have been looking to have some spares made up for the RV but they are as scarce as "Hen's Teeth" :thumb:

    Think so, they put the original key into a slot and it was 'read' up and down, then they put a huge blank into the machine and this was 'shaved' then cut. Fascinating. Maybe they have a website?

    jan thanks for this info been on the site found one near us going to go and get some cut, before hubby breaks the last spare::bigsmile: that we have apparently they can do 98.8% while you wait and can still do the other 1.2% but you have to leave the keys for a couple of days, so as long as you have a key they can cut it
    great:thumb:will let you know geo if they do hairy keys:ROFLMAO:
