If you are afraid of serrated pins....don't look.

I took a cheapo Sc1 cylinder. Grabbed a 6x32 tap and die. And had a little fun. Then I finished it off by turning it into a cutaway.

Let's just say I had some spare time today.

Great Job, I am sure it is a lot tougher pick now. It is hard to tell does the tap and die do a good job of making lasting serrations???

Welcome Aboard! That picture looks eerie with the pins and pin drill holes exposed. I look forward to more.
I'm inspired however, I'll post a drilling video myself, soon.

Welcome to KP, great idea for the pin serrations.

Do the pins spin in the chamber at all when their being pushed up?
My first thought would be that they wouldn't but I'm interested to find out.

Nice stuff there... now I'ma gonna go and hide as serrated pins are the current bane of my existence, well specifically an American with all serrated keypins, and all drivers but one serrated... just messes with my head. (Yes, Kokomo, it's still unpicked...)

Nope, but I had to go look just to double check.

It seems to be fine. The first cylinder I threaded everything in was put through a torture test of being impressioned very aggressively. To be fair, it was easier to pick after the torture test. But they were definitely still there.
