I got a Penta here that I will look at attacking one day. My Kaba Gemini was real bear to pick and that only had 3 rows of pins, not 5.

Imschatten360 did a cool Miwa EC decode/make up key. He used a physical magnet to probe the inside of the lock then a plastic make-up key. I have a Miwa 3800 decoder here and I use a make-up key too, only my version is electronic. I think both approaches might work for the Miracle magnetic, if the magnets are strictly a binary push/pull (or blank) thing.

Thanks guys, here are a few more pictures of some things I've collected over the last few weeks. I will try a make up key for the MIWA as you mentioned. Most of the radially pinned locks are a PITA for me, and I haven't had any success yet on the Penta.

LaGard 3300 (I'm new to manipulation and got this and the 6730 for practice.)
Image

S&G 6730 ( I had someone change the combination to this lock for me.)
Image

Zeiss Ikon Cruciform
Image

Securit S1801 5 Lever
Image
Image

Western Electic 30c
Image

ILCO SFIC "WA keyway"
Image
Picked to control using a .015" pick I modified for the EPS
Image
Image

Eagle IRS Barrel Padlock
Image
Top is the padlock key, bottom two are mortise/rim cylinder keys
Image

Abus Titalium 64ti/20 ( I picked this up at the hardware store for $3. I didn't know they came so small.)
Image

CISA RS3 S ( I opened this using a homemade flag, the interactive element was the last pin to bind.)
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Southern Steel Assa Twin (Just got this open tonight, it's the first Twin I've picked so far.)
Image

Southern Steel Assa Twin Mogul
Image

Mauer Crypto ( I've gotten a few false sets but not much more than that. I think my problem is over setting pins. This lock has 18 pins at 12,3, and 6 o' clock positions. The 12 and 3 o' clock pins are binding first.)

whew! sell all that for a car!

How did you locate the cutaways? I have a mill but.. kinda scared to start choppin.

My progression jumpped leaps and bounds over the last couple of months. It is good to see it is possible to pick these. I seem to like the Titalium as a fast less than a minute reassurance confidence booster. Have to pick up that baby you posted. Thank you for some inspiration.

Most of the stuff is from ebay. It would be pretty awesome if you started making your own cutaways, it could be profitable too. A few weeks ago I saw a S&G Environmental cutaway sold for $450. I thought to myself.. how hard is it to actually make that? If someone could pick one up for $80-$100, machine away some metal and then sell it for $350 profit that sounds pretty good to me. I've seen some other cutaways that look a lot more difficult to machine though. Something like a MulTLock would probably be pretty hard.

Assa Twin Pro (Thanks to the member that sent me this. I had some problems with my picks getting stuck in the lock when picking the sidebar but eventually found one that worked well. )

NIX PIX (Not having a key I made a tension tool earlier today. I can set most the pins with a probe but haven't got it picked yet.)
