When I was in Thailand in 1969 I needed a second key for my motorcycle. I knew of and old guy who had a push cart outfitted as a key shop... totally manual - no electricity... nothing but hand tools, files, and a small vice. When I arrived at his normal location a lady in a Mercedes had just pulled up and needed to replace her lost trunk key.

The old boy took a long skinny metal probe, crouched down by the trunk's keyhole and put it in and "felt" whatever he was looking for. Gazing blankly toward the sky, he felt his way through the keyhole's tumblers for about 20 seconds.

He then went to his cart and selected the appropriate key blank and secured it into the vice. He then selected a couple of small files and went to work on the blank.

After a minute or so of work he brushed the newly filed key off with a brass brush and put it into the trunk's keyhole and opened the trunk. It took him less time to make her a second trunk key... Total cost? 20 Baht - one dollar.
