A college friend of mine (who was a locksmith at the time, but
unfortunately is no longer) was able to disassemble the lock on
my B turnkey box and produce a working key, which he claimed
should be indistinguishable from the original. The cylinder key
blanks he had were 30 years old. I had him engrave "reproduction"
on it. Anyway, what I guess I'm saying is that, if you take it
to a good locksmith, they will be able to make you a key.
