For real? Is it even worth your time and effort to post this and keep checking the thread? Just pay the $3.

Home Depot is pretty cheap, couldn't tell ya if its cheaper than $3 though...

Careful about Home Depot. I've had 2 experiences where the keys they cut did not work. Got my money back but not going there again. Went there for the convenience. Makes sense to just go to a place that is actually known for cutting keys and pay the $5 or whatever they charge.

+1 stay away from home depot they are horrible. on 3 occasions i had to go back at least 3 times and eventually gave up and went elsewhere after getting my money back.

go to rona. they get it done on the first attempt.

I don't think OP is cheap, I think he just really likes math.

I think what he wants to do is to derive a fuel-distance consumption function, automotive wear-tear function, time-spent function for each suggestion you provide and optimize them.

When he chooses the most theoretically cost-effective path, he will then measure everything about the trip and calculate the errata, and the influence of random variables (ie. traffic, weather, humidity, etc)

Next time he needs a key cut again, he can calculate the variances.

In my experience with key cutting, you get what you for.

Broadway Locksmiths is my go-to place for key cutting.

How many keys you gotta cut? Are you a jailer? Do you throw away your keys after you use them for hygienic reasons? Do you plan on leaving keys around the city in a sinister plot to kill Batman?

I will personally pay for your keys to be cut if you give me a reason for this question.
