Funny thing has happened with these side-milled keys:

CNC machines that cut to specification have replaced the manual duplicating ( pantograph ) type machines at most all leading locksmiths.

I had my manual machine converted to fully automatic.

This allows precise key cutting, even when original is damaged, such as a VW key I decoded and cut back to OE spec yesterday.

As a consequence, I currently can not cut the key you mentioned. I made the company that converted my machine aware of this new application that needs to be added to my machines' database of electronic "templates".

You will need to find an old skool, frugal locksmith that does not like newfangled machinery.... his old machine will be able to duplicate your key.

It is likely this issue will be addressed in the very near future.

Good Luck, and sorry I could not be of more help!
