Re: TrioVing Pins

There is no list because I do not have anymore available for sale/trade.

Re: TrioVing Pins

We were discussing my first attempt at home brewing these pins Xeo.
Back up a bit & take a look at the pics I posted. I'm very curious to hear
any input you may have before I delve too deep or put too much time in.

I know you've probably spent many hours with these little bastards...
so any particulars you feel I should focus on while turning these out
may prove useful.

Re: TrioVing Pins

You have any friends in Norway?

Got my first TrioVing from the scrap bucket at a lock shop years ago. They tossed it because they couldn't get blanks to make keys for it. I got the blanks, and make the key. You never know where you may come across them. They are used in VingCard door locks at a hotel I stay at when in Denver. They were used on a tour boat I rode on while on vacation in Alaska this summer. Keep your eyes open, and ask at any lock shops you happen to visit. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Making these angled-barrel-spools wouldn’t be too difficult if your dremel can hold onto a good factory spool of some kind fairly well. With some fiddling I’ve managed to get mine to keep ahold of some ASSA LW spools, despite their thin edges. From there the flat part of a half-circle, or triangular swiss file would allow for getting the angled grooves.

I might give this a crack next time I bust out my gear to make more security pins. If I’m successful I’ll throw up some pics.

There is a history museum of some kind in Eskilstuna, Sweden that I visited many years ago. They have a vault door with a key that looks like a Christmas tree. The lock is a few hundred years old, yet the workmanship is incredible. The key is downright astonishing. When you consider the work that went into making that baby, then realize that they made it without power tools, it is amazing. Think you would enjoy a tour of that part of the planet. But take some advise... do it in the summertime!

Like aeporia mentioned - needle files. I have a bunch of old ones.
A variety of shapes is good, and you want some with a safe edge.

You may want to start with a standard pin rather than a spool depending on what you're shooting for.
The mid-section of a spool will be too small in diameter from the start. You want the widest part in the
middle to end up the same diameter as the pin itself. As I made slopes toward the center, I did my
best to leave the peak practically untouched so that it maintains its' original circumference.

And, as you mentioned, the biggest hassle is getting the damn thing chucked and spinning true. lol

Ahhh, right you are. Thanks for pointing this out.

Also, those homebrew pins look stunning Oldfast.
