One of the "while you wait" places in York can do tubulars, but only
when the boss is around as they claim it's trickier to get the depths
exactly right.  They cut a DEC key for me and it wasn't right so they
re-made it.  One of the better ironmongers near here can do various
keys, including, I think, tubulars.  They've cut bike D-lock keys,
Mul-T-Lock security keys and various other odd ones for me.
