Re: MacGyver101's Lock Collection

It has been a while since I laid the collection out for some photos... thanks for the prompting: it gave me a bit of a nudge to reorganize some of the more recent additions.

Re: MacGyver101's Lock Collection

Thanks, guys, for the kind words! Always fun to pull everything out and take some photos. :)

Ha... I seem to recall making on offer on one a few months ago. :lol:

mister sour wrote:Do you have a Vanlock padlock?

I do: I have a Vanlock and a Medeco Duracam, each mounted in a Cobra 8500 padlock body. (They're nice padlocks: they'll take a pretty wide range of camlocks as cylinders.)

Re: MacGyver101's Lock Collection

Hey Mac,

This collection of yours is just awsome!
I like the cases very much can you tell me where to get those or are they custom made?
You wouldn't sell the Abus Diskus with Lever key :D?

Thank you very much for sharing especially the books!

Hi MacGyver101

Wonderful connection of high quality locks you have!

The lock that is to the left of the yellow plastic lock in this picture

What lock is that? An Abloy of some sort?
