      You still can't make it for less - unless labor is free - but it is a
      lot of work to make a one time key.

      The 100th Anniversary bug is $158 - and this is a deluxe model with a
      jeweled movement (something you are not able to make on a lathe) -
      shipping to EU is $37.00 = total = $195 which is EU 133.

      If you can make this key - which you cannot with the jeweled bearings
      - for EU 133, I will eat the key!
