hillman 3100 key duplicator?

Hi Everyone,
Someone here locally has a Hillman 3100 key machine for sale with 1000's of
keyblanks and display.
I cant find any information on this machine. Is it old and no longer sold?
It looks similar to a ILCO 040.
He says it looks new and wants $600 bucks.
Is it worth it?
Thanks!
Mike

First off do you need a key machine and blanks? If so how much per blank? If you were to allow $.20 per blank, 1,000 blanks would be $200 so if by thousands of blanks you mean 3,000 blanks then the machine would be free.

Hillman is a 'new' company.. who it actually is I have NO clue, but would be willing to BET that its indeed an Ilco machine.. the local hardware stores now have 'hillman' branded blanks.. how many keys? how many towers? and CAN YOU USE THE STUFF???
Considering the price even ON SALE of key machines (you a locksmith), I am thinking it can be a REAL nice price, especially if the blanks are 'current need' types, nothing from back in the 50's- 60's.. AND it would be usable in your area.. I would jump myself, after seeing the key supply, but also know that some I would have for a 'while'.. I bought about 10,000 blanks at an auction one time, and went into it KNOWING some were going to be pure junk.. but at 2 cents a blank, I can get the money back in brass..
BTW, has EVERYONE NOTICED the price of scrap BRASS????? its WAY up.. --Shiva--

And which blanks? They're only worth money if you actually cut them. Ancient vehicular keys, or lock brands that have evaporated, may be of value to specialists but for most of us they probably tie up shop space and money that could be invested in other things.

I agree, I got a lot of blanks, that on the east coast, would probably be usable.. to me they are so much scrap as I will NEVER see that lock.. some are 'area used', and others are 'never used'.. same with cars..

I've got a couple hundred blanks I never expect to see. and then a lady called with an obscure Yale key. She wants three or four copies, the Curtis number Y3. I havn't seen one of them in ages. Now I need four.

I'd have to to back and look. I've got a few B-10 and B-11 for GM. I think I used to have some signle sided Ford, some single sided Datsun. Can't remember if I've got any Chrsysler.
All aftermarket. I think I've got a cuople Briggs B-10 equiv and B-11 equiv. Might, but can't remember.

This was a couple months ago, and I'm not even sure if I've got the card with her name and number. I think I had two or three, and might have found another one since then. It is not a rush job.
