Getting to the point where I dread having to cut universal keys...

Recommended Posts

The ones I've been getting from SKS are so HARD!


This is MORTICE keys not cylinder keys.


They're ruining my blades.


Any tips on where to source decent quality rim lock and mortice lock universal blanks from made from decent steel?



I don't use many universal blanks but I notice that the Rim Mortice are difficult.  Tried a new blade, using half the cutter width etc and still find some of the bits break off the shaft.  They seem really hard, yet no problems with other blanks.  Will try a genuine cutter next time.
