Can you use the the original key and cut it down to depth nine or do I have to cut from blank key? All help greatly appreciated.

Sure you can use the original key. Just keep in mind that this key will no longer function as a 'normal key'.

So if you have a spare key try it out on... go for it!

Infact, its a whole lot easier to start with a spare key, rather than a blank, since the spacing is already cut correctly.

i concur, especially if the key already has deep cuts. its a good reference for how deep you should cut. Match the deepest cut, then go a little deeper.

I agree, its really very easy with the spare key due to already made spacing. I once used to work with blank and found tougher than the once with the cuts.
