Key cutting: mortice blanks

Hi everyone, looking for a little advice. Currently i provide a key cutting service from my van. I only stock the key blanks for the locks i supply and fit as i do not want to carry hundreds of different blanks which i will probably never use.

The problem is i now have a contract with a big letting agent who now and again ask me to come and cut keys for them at the office. As for cylinders, i usually get away with using my universal 5 and 6 pin blanks, however i only stock union mortice blanks (locks i supply and fit). My question is, is there a few universal mortice blanks on the market which will cover the majority of mortice locks? Or will i have to bite the bullet and buy in all the popular mortices blanks?

Thanks

Danny

I know there is universal (composite) cylinders that can use multiple blanks, but not the way your looking for. :mrgreen:

I would get one of the selection boards from SKS or HD etc. That will give you a good cross section of blanks and you can restock what you need.

I was speaking to my local lock supplier today (keyprint edinburgh) ended up getting union blanks (fits all union), era fortress blanks, chubb and legge. He recommended keeping a few universal blanks for each gauge from 5 to 7. And only use these when one of the above blanks do not fit
