The local scrap dealer is willing to give me beer chits if I bring in my old obsolete keys. Problem is I have to segregate the steel from the brass.

Now I had the day off school when they did metal identification.

I reckon all the mortice keys are steel apart from the lightweight alloy ones. What about cylinder keys. Is it a case of yellow=brass and silver=steel, or are the silver coloured keys actually coated brass?

Help please
