Re: Oldfast's gutted locks

Awesome write up and pictures, off topic question. What is that mat under the lock? It looks cool.
Naaapaalm...sticks to kids...it sticks to the belly and it sticks to the ribs...
See those kids standing by the lake...drop some napalm and watch them bake.

Yeah, that's funny. A good 7-8 hits on the back, several on the front, and a good few from the top. Then the poor fella got tired. lol

Not sure exactly what it's called, but it's for lining drawers & and can be purchased at any of the major stores (ie. Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, etc.). Something like this http://www.amazon.com/Grip-Shelf-Drawer ... B000KFSOFI

Re: Oldfast's gutted locks

On the Hi-Shear, with the 2 little holes by the key way that form a loop when the plug is taken out, is that to attach a chain?

Someone can correct us if we're wrong, but I'm pretty certain that's exactly what it's for Eric. The other end of the chain would then be fastened nearby. This way the lock can hang there when it's off from whatever it's normally locked to, and also won't be taken from the area it's intended for.

Re: Oldfast's gutted locks

***PLEASE HELP ME KEEP THESE ARTICLES ACCURATE & ALL-INCLUSIVE... COMMENTS AND/OR CORRECTIONS WELCOMED!!***


MEDECO METROLOCK 52-7E

Application: general high security use

ImageImage
A worthy adversary.... and an extremely exciting journey! Thank you Sour! (a.k.a "ebay ninja")
*Early on, I suggest forming an alliance with the black ninja.. or, face the sharp edge of his samurai bidding sword on the battle grounds of ebay* lol

ImageImage
Medeco's cam lock is similar in design to many of its' other locks, as it employs a sidebar.
However, due to the absence of driver pins, the sidebar becomes its' primary locking mechanism.

ImageImage
As usual... to prevent drilling attacks (or at least slow the process), 4 hardened-steel inserts are
stratigically placed near the face of the plug. Three of which, at the 12 o'clock position, shield the
keypins. A fourth, at 3 o'clock, protects the sidebar.

ImageImage
You can see that each chamber is not perfectly cylindrical. The excess milling in each chamber
accepts the 'tab', or 'flag' found on each keypin. This sets a rotational boundry for each pin and
prevents over-rotation (which would cause the lock to malfunction).

Looking from the bottom of the keyway, you can see the five keypins resting at various angles.
Each pin has three possible rotational positions- left, right, or center. The chisel-point shaped
tips of the keypins interact with the angled cuts on the keys' bitting to achieve this rotation.

ImageImage
Each chamber contains one spring-loaded keypin. The holes on the pins interface with the sidebar,
while the serrations help complicate matters (or make for some fun, depending on how you want to
look at it) lol. At the end of each sidebar post is a straight, sharp, horizontal line (similar to the resulting
cut from a pair of side cutters). This way, the posts catch and sink deep into the serrations (again- good times).

Image

Some lock porn in its' purest form........... mmmmm mmm! Hope you enjoy :reach:

Re: Oldfast's gutted locks

Thanks guys. This has got to be one of the sexiest subjects I've documented yet. lol

Sour, just a word of caution for when you start picking yours. When I first started picking it, I was able to use surprisingly light-medium tesion with good results. But eventually the serrations WILL wear down. You'd think this would make it easier to pick, but it actually makes it even more difficult. You'll start loosing previously set pins, both vertically & rotationally.

By the time I shot the vid, it was MUCH more difficult to pick than when I started. You'll notice I used very heavy tension in an effort to keep the pins set. You'll also notice me re-visting pin 2 several times... it kept dropping on me because the serration was practically gone. You can kinda see it in the photo. So, if possible, try n' stay away from heavy tension... not only to preserve the lock, but for your sanity. lol

Ha! Not even close.. but thanks so much for the encouragement Tobbe. Just as with picking, it's more time than talent with me. A labor of love really. I've a small digital Olympus camera that I use for my videos & photos. There's no auto focus when recording video (& the audio's really wacky), and it's certainly not meant for the intricate photos I try n' achieve with it. lol

Those 12 pictures are a result of me sifting through well over a hundred (mostly blurry) photos. lol
