I was pleasantly surprised to come across craft=key_cutter in the wiki,
as it seems to bridge the gap between the shoe-repair key machine
operator, who can copy a small selection of the most common keys, and a
real locksmith shop, which sells and services many types of locks and
safes and offers high-security key copying, lock repinning,
installation, also often these days alarms and security systems.
Copying keys isn't a storied craft like, say brewing or blacksmithing...
but it does require some skill. And something is, literally, being
crafted. That it can happily coexist with shop=* is a serendipitous
bonus of using the craft tag.
Btw, lately I'm starting to see self-service automatic key-copying
vending machines in some shops. Do I dare call these robotic kiosks
craftsmen? Maybe vending=key_cutter?
