Key service kit

Have recently got a heads-up notice of an impending out-of-state on-line auction that has an item listed as a '1935 United Service Motors key service kit'. I have heard of and have seen USM signs but never a key service kit. Anyone seen such an item?

Re: Key service kit

Just an afterthought......maybe it is referring to shaft keys or woodruff keys.....

Re: Key service kit

A quick search, and... https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-united-motors-service-wooden-153813041

Ok, it sez United Motors Service, not United Service Motors, but I'm thinking it's the same thing. Basically a box full of old car key blanks. How they were cut, I don't know.

After adding an 's' to the word 'kit', I googled again and came to this site. And yes, it is a key kit. USM and UMS....same thing. Depends on how one reads their porcelain sign.

Re: Key service kit

Auctioneer sent me pics of key kit and it's the same as in link photos except the UMS confidential code book is included.
