Right. More places can likely copy than code cut an ACE key. I found
a place in Columbus that could do it, but certainly not every place.

Code books are for looking up the requisite cuts/pins/wafers to make
either locks or keys. A competent commercial locksmith who has the
right tools and parts should be able to do it.
