Had a LOT more fun taunting Oldfast (the :wanker: ) back and forth than if I won. :mrgreen:

Re: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Random Number Contest

Thanks everyone. I'm still at a lose of words and serious disbelief. It's not like me to win. In fact I think I won only because flywheel did the draw today. For some reason today is a very special day, Santa gift came, within the gift that 7 pin best I picked to control in under 20 sec first try, my buddy decided he no longer needed some cool stuff and gave it to me, I got a raise at work without even asking for one so I'm taking that advise and running to the store to get some lottery tickets before it hits 12. :). I guess that's pushing my luck but I can't not try lol.

The numbers I picked are my oldest son's date of birth and he has insane luck so maybe that's tied in some how.

Flywheel thanks again for the idea, contest, video and everything else. I think you started a precedent here which will continue every year. Maybe next year who every wants to play chips in a lock and we get a huge pot going with 1st 2nd and 3rd spot? I don't know, a thought that just came to mind. Either way I will surely be a contributing next year even if I'll be the one to make such a contest.

I'll post a video and/or pics when they arrive. Only sucky part is that I always ship everything to my office which is closed Saturday BUT I have had luck in the past by running into my mail man so I may still get it. He already knows my boxes (small and fking heavy) so he keeps them in his truck all day even if he has multiple load ups.

Again thank you very much. I am stunned by your generosity. It also so happens that a lot of those locks were locks I had on my wish list.

Re: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Random Number Contest

Flywheel, man you sure have went above and beyond. I received the 2 boxes and decided not to open them on video just because we all knew whats inside...or do we? Flywheel, Im really at a lose of words man, Now that Im replying it all in my head Im happy I decided not to records it because the video would have been all Wows and OMGs lol.

I will not post pictures of all the locks he pictures in the first page of the thread but I will post the pictures of the locks he did not:

Everyone likes bonus locks, right? Thanks for entering the contest. Now get picking! :hbg:
I believe the half euro is a GEGE. It only has 5 pins so don't go too crazy trying to pick a 6th. :pimpmofo:

Incredible haul! Well done. Flywheel.

Is that a TuBar? It looks like one, but the orientation (and color) is different from all the others that I've seen.

Re: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Random Number Contest

Yes, it is a TuBar. If you look around, have some pics of two different cutaways that Snowyboy made for me, plus the internals of the lock. That way you have some idea of what is inside. It has no shear line for the pins.

Here is my folder for pics... http://s1146.photobucket.com/user/GWiens2001/library/Cut%20Away%20Locks/TuBar%20Cutaways

I assume it is but it doesn't have a key so it must be a FuBar.

Lol. Have you seen my how to video on picking them? Not too bad, and once picked, it's easy to make an improvised key
