Amazingly resourceful

On Saturday, I went to buy some "new" used running shoes at the open-air market. (Success - at a good price.)

I realized I needed a key copied when I saw a key maker guy. He created a duplicate using only a metal file and a vice! It was amazing to watch him work. The final phase was checking the size of the "teeth" using a hand-caliper (basically a "C" shaped piece of metal) - with no measurements.

My apologies that I didn't get a picture - I broke my rule and forgot to bring my camera along!
