Here is a clip of cutting a car key. This is a VW T5 Transporter key. If you’ve lost your key, there clearly isn’t a key to copy. If you don’t have the keycard, we can use special tools to decode the lock. We then send these settings to a computerised CNC cutting machine to cut the key.

August's draw giveaway is a 'surf key' (non transponder key to open/lock the doors) for your vehicle. Simply like, share or comment to be in with a change of winning. (If you win, I'll send the key to a work/friend/relative's address where the van IS NOT kept – for obvious reasons). Winner will need to send a good quality photograph of their key for decoding).Posted by Ross-Dean Locksmiths on Sunday, 30 July 2017
The type of CNC car key cutting machine we use cuts a new key to code i.e. to the exact depths and measurements that it came new. A typical high street shop key machine is a trace cutter, that effectively gives you another worn key that looks shiny.
