If you have the code it is looked up in a book. The book will explain
the depths of the cuts. They are then done on a "code cutter". It is
not like the duplicator machines. The depths can also be read off of a
key by a reader or a micrometer and then reverse looked up to get the
code. You are correct, not every locksmith has this equipment. Many
will just talk you into "duping" the key. Not a good idea to dupe a
worn key. It is what they call a "generation" problem. It is like
making a copy of a copy. Every copy is a little less like the
origional. This is why you want to get back to using the code. Don't
forget not only is the key worn but the locks wear also so using a bad
copy of a worn key is not a great thing to do.
