What's a MINI Key Hospital without a key blade cutting machine?  Running to the hardware store or locksmith, that's what.  So I've decided to do something about it by obtaining my own key cutting machine!  I've ordered one specifically to cut the "HU92" style blade on first generation MINI keys.  The blade and cuts are different on the second generation cars and I don't need to practice on those at the moment- sorry second gen. owners!

Here's where you come in.  I've never done this before, so I need some practice before I cut the keys of real customers.  I'll do my car and Stacie's, but I'd love to try and duplicate your key as well.  I have quite a few extra blades to practice on and if I manage to cut one that works on both the door and the ignition, it's yours!

It's not easy to lock your keys in a MINI but it can be done.  You can hide this blade on the outside of your car (it's small- it will be just the blade!) or you can keep it in your smalls drawer or in your safe deposit box.  Going for a run?  Tuck this in your sock or whatever and leave your real keys hidden under the seat or something if you are daring.  I don't care what you do with the blade, but it's yours to keep.

The key machine arrives some time this week and I've got real customers waiting so I'd like to get some practice in soon.  We'll see how portable this thing is so I might be able to take it on the road to your place but contact me please and we'll work something out.

Thank you-

Dr. Bruce Hart

If it's practice that you need, then it shall be practice that you get.  Shout out when you're ready.  Thank you Dr.
