Interesting video.

Fully supports why it is often so much better to educate yourself and do the work yourself. Shame so many so called professional trades are like this. I have been burned by multiple plumbers, and huge by a roofer. I do everything myself if I can- even it appears to be more expensive doing it myself.

I found a trusted locksmith and he has key machines that are brought to spec every 6 months. And I have brought him a few locks to re-key or make a few locks the same key and he charges $15 or $20.

When I had my custom home built, I had locks modified so they are supposedly bump and pick proof. The locksmith warned not to insert a wrong key or the lock would require being drilled out.

The show up fee is pricey outside bizl hours. I am surprised anyone would do it for $80 unless really close.

The $80 seemed too cheap at night while the $450 steep. Somewhere in the middle is what I'd expect.
