So when I moved into a new place, and was told the key couldn’t be duplicated …

Keys

Did you know you can duplicate keys from a photo like this??? This is why this is not a photo of my house keys.

Due to the original key being made of “soft metal” or something.  Or maybe it was the lock itself.

Looking at the key, it didn’t seem an insurmountable challenge for a talented locksmith, so I trundled off to Professional Locksmiths in Melbourne.  First heard of them when I needed to get a copy of an unusual work key.   Which they were able to copy.

“Yes, we can copy that.  It’s going to cost $11 for the key blank.  We can do it now for you.”

Five minutes later, I was out of there with my newly copied key.
