American Key Supply Black Widow

Oct. 21, 2021

American Key Supply has announced its own key machine, in two versions. The Black Widow is a full-featured key cutting machine that can cut commercial, residential and automotive keys by code.

The Black Widow AUTO comes equipped to handle most automotive applications out of the box. The COMPLETE version adds a single-sided jaw for the ability to cut single-sided auto, residential, commercial keys and more. Dimple, tibbe and tubular keys require the purchase of additional jaws or cutters.

The Black Widow likely will appeal to the budget-conscious locksmith, who might be looking to initiate their own independent locksmithing operation or to simply add an inexpensive code cutter to their arsenal.

The Black Widow makes use of integrated Bluetooth technology in that machine operations are app-driven rather than using an integrated touchscreen interface. This means that most current Apple iOS or Google Android devices will be able to control key-cutting operations without issue. The pairing process isn’t cumbersome, and the app is intuitive and delivers a full suite of features one would expect from a modern, computerized key-cutting machine.

Black Widow features:

  • Step-by-step guidance throughout all duplicating and cutting procedures.
  • Proprietary key-code database with free lifetime updates.
  • Fill-progressioning to eliminate guesswork when decoding locks.
  • Lightweight body with an integrated pop-up handle for easy transportation.
  • Native 12-volt power, using a standard 110V outlet, an inexpensive 12V cigarette lighter power cable or an external battery pack (coming soon).
  • 12,000-rpm brushless motor that uses a high-quality Japanese drive belt.
  • Integrated storage compartment to keep all cutters, tracers and accessories safe.
  • Custom key profiles for those rare instances when a key type isn’t available in the machine database.
  • Free and unlimited updates for the life of the machine.

The Black Widow is available exclusively at American Key Supply and you can check it out there or visit for more information.
