Duplicate Keys Wikipedia Extract
A machine permitting rapid duplication of flat metal keys, which contributed to the proliferation of their use during the 20th century, may have been first invented in the United States in 1917 (image to the left):
|“||The key to be duplicated is placed in one vise and the blank key to be cut in a corresponding vise under the cutting disk. The vise carriage is then into such position by means of a lateral-feed clutch that the shoulders of both the pattern and blank keys just touch the guide disk and cutter respectively. The lateral-feed clutch on the top of the machine is then thrown, and the vertical feed rod released into action and power applied through the combination hand-crank power wheel on the right of the machine, until the cutter has passed over the entire length at the blank. A duplicate of the pattern key is obtained in about one minute.||”|
In recent years, duplicate keys dual key cutting machines have come on to the market, enabling cutting of both mortice and cylinder keys on one machine. These machines are primarily manufactured in the Far East and save a key cutter a significant amount of money compared with using two separate dedicated machines.

Cylindrical keys can be cut- it just takes a different machine.
Most locksmiths have these and can make dupes for you for just a few bucks each. $ 3-$ 4 usually.
However- you need to go to a locksmith. The local hardware store probably doesn’t have one of these machines. Call the locksmith beforehand to make sure.
