Re: Lauren's Antique Padlock Restoration

JHW CLIMAX padlocks are one of my favorite types of Scandinavian locks. These locks are not easy to decode. In fact, I dedicated a lengthy chapter in my latest book about them. Here's my latest work. This 5 disc padlock is fantastically huge and is now the biggest and heaviest lock I own! The lock was obtained without a key and in the locked position. The key was made from tool steel. I have seen similar sized padlocks go for $175.00 and I got it for $45.00.

You can learn how to make keys for these locks in my latest book. These locks are a lot of fun and a testimony of locksmith skill.

Re: Lauren's Antique Padlock Restoration

In the beginning of my quest for new and interesting antique padlocks, I never saw my self ever collecting Scandinavian style padlocks. Maybe the initial turnoff was, I just didn't like the idea of owning rusty old padlocks. But now, I can't get enough of these old rusty bricks of iron. Surprisingly, many Scandinavian designs will still function beautifully, despite the exterior appearance. Take the JHW CLIMAX padlocks for example, (talk about complex warding) these locks are truly a mechanical work of art. I have learned the key making and decoding process for these locks (without books or pdf's). Here's my latest work and you can learn the process in my latest book: http://www.blurb.com/b/7793878-the-extr ... r-book-two
