Lesson 13 How to make Keys.
Making keys is a essential part of a locksmiths business.  It is true that you can go to most hardware stores to get keys made but sometimes they will not have the correct key blank and other times a customer will get fed up going back to the store over and over because the keys that where copied don't work.

Typically locksmiths have better key duplication equipment and do a more précis job copping the key. 

Also in some instances a customer may not have a key for you to copy and you will need to make one from scratch.  That is called impressioning.   

First lets look at copping a key.
Next lets look at making keys by impressioning.  If a customer does not have the original key to make the copy from you might have to impression a key.  The video below will show you how to do this.
