Hi there

I am just starting key cutting and need some help

can  anyone tell me the top 10 cylinder blanks and the top 10 mortice blanks please.

I have bought 4 starter boards from THM with what they say are the most asked for blanks

but the board does not even contain a peg for a YALE1A blank let alone the blank itself

research tells me that the 1A is very popular so have i got the wrong starter boards ?

please help if you can

davenport burgess

they do a great range of boards with ALL the popular keys on, and you can even have them customised at no extra charge with your company name on every one

Popularity could vary from location to location. Not having 1A is a fairly bad start. You might have been better buying your boards from a more recognised source, like SKS or Davenport.

Here's mine with JMA codes

U5D , 1A, U6D, Ya79D, Tx3D, asec1, Er2D, Er1d, un11, Carlf.

373, 436, 346 360 353 463 559 571 334 335

You can buy empty boards, and get yourself some reference books. For key comparison cross reference and blank recognition

THM will have a different reference for 1A (jma ref) depending on the blanks manfucturer  they use .. i will be surprised if its not there..call them and they will guide you

The costs are important, but I always thought that with THM the prices were a bit too low.

Why don't you place more regular, but much smaller orders until you know what blanks you really have demand for.
