@ James

What do the letters mean? I've asked before, but people either don't know or don't answer.

Had a pleasant surprise when I gutted this one and found all 5 drivers to be spools.

Nice! Lots of spools. By the way, where do you get that carboard for laying pinstacks in?
Howdy!

Re: Oldfast's gutted locks

I cut a top flap off a box, then pulled it apart to get at the corrugated surface. Some cardboard uses bigger/wider corrugations, while others are smaller with the corrugations closer together.

MASTER 1UP

Interesting concept. These locks come from the factory with one lengthy serrated pin in each chamber.
Using a tool specifically designed for these locks, the serrations allow you to 'shear' the pins to various
heights to accomodate a particular bitting. Obviously, once a pin is sheared into two pieces, they create
a pinstack consisting of a driver & keypin. The intention of the serrations, I'm sure, were not security based-
but essentially, you end up with serrated drivers & keypins.

Image

This is a four pin lock. Notice the extra pin chamber in the bible lines up with the milling that runs the circumference of the plug. A single spring loaded pin is placed in this chamber and works as a retaining pin. Another thing you'll notice is that the pins are not always sheared cleanly. Take a look at the top of keypin 4 (which is actually pin 3).

Great concept, but I wouldn't recommend these locks. If they're not messed up from the start, they very quickly become "finicky" to open. In fact, they seem to take about the same amount of time to open whether you're picking it or using a key. lol
