KBX is the easiest way to find a substitute key blank. Just type in the key blank number and it shows you what to substitute. If there are several nonequivalent blanks with the same name, it lists them by manufacturer and offers you the choice. You can use the labels to point to the location on your keyboard or to add other information that might help you.
Refer to 7-, 6-, and 5-pin blanks on the same screen. Find automotive blanks which are further classified according to bow material and shank length.
Use KBX to reduce training time with a new employee. Use it for those blanks that you once knew but have forgotten. Use it to find a blank with a different bow and reduce your inventory. (Use it as a game---its wealth of information will entertain you for hours.)
But most of all, use it to SAVE TIME. There are better ways to spend your time than looking for key blanks. Buy KBX now.
* Search your own labels for any substring
* Use wild-card characters to search for blanks
* Dummy blanks added for you to keep current between updates
If you add information to KBX by adding labels, you may want to search these labels for things you've added. For example, if you added a label "Geo Storm" to a group of blanks, you could search for the string "storm" and find that label back, along with the attached blank. This can be a powerful tool for those who have added plenty of good information in the labels.
If you are trying to recall a certain blank but can't quite remember which one it is, you might use the wild-card feature. Or if part of the blank number has been worn off, you could type "1054??" to locate all the blanks 1054DL, 1054MT, 1054TW, 1054UN, 1054WC, and so on.
If you have a new blank you want to add to the program, but there is no group to attach it to, just add it as a label to a dummy blank. You can then search for the new blank as a label, and find it (and any substitutes you've added) almost the same as if it were in the regular list of blanks. Two hundred dummy blanks are available for your use.
If you have added your own hook numbers as labels, and notice that your employee has emptied a hook without reordering, you can find out what to reorder by searching the labels for your hook number.
