Hey everyone I'm relatively new to bumping and completely new to the site and forums. I just ordered a five set and a SC20(A x-mas gift to myself, for the price I couldn't say no.) and I was wondering if a dermal will work just as well as a file for cutting the tip and the top

Another question: How can you tell the deepest cut for a key by looking at the original? I have a key that doesn't have any extremely low cuts then another one of the exact same type (back door and front door) that has cuts even lower then the 1st.

Thanks for the help!

Well you can use a dremal to file the shoulder and tip, just as well as with a hand filer.

The lowest cut should be near that line in the middle of the key.

I agree and suggest you the same as stated above that using dremal to file with a hand filer and keep the lowest cut near that line in the middle.
