i paid £10.00 the weekend, seems a lot just to copy a key, it was done on hand machine, not computerised.

For a Tibbe key you should expect around £10, a Laser key is more difficult due to the recessed cuts and can be upwards of £20.
When I tried to get the laser blade on my self-sourced flip key cut Timpsons flat out refused and an independent cutter across the road also refused saying the metal was too hard and would damage his cutting blades.
Mobile locksmith did it in a couple of minutes and was perfectly happy.
Because laser keys have a chromed look to them when uncut people assume they are harder than they really are.
They're just shiny brass and cut fine. :)
