Re: The MrAnybody Collection

Guys,

I really need some help on this.

His Reverence The Mailman brought me an unexpected 10 lever Ingersoll this morning, but I'm embarrassed to say I can't recall for the life of me who's sent it. There's no note and I'm not expecting this off eBay for sure.

I really wanna thank the sender for it. It's a sweet lock, and a really bitch to pick with the dampening in it.

Image

It's got a sender's UK address on the package, but I don't recognise it at all. Nor do I recognise the Sender's name. I get a fare amount of PMs on this and that, so I've done my best to search through those looking for people I've sent my address to, but I'm getting no joy with that as far as an Ingersoll goes.

I feel such a bloody fool for losing track of lock packages coming to me, and I've never left a lock deal or someone's generosity go unrecognised. I just wanna give a shout out to whoever sent it to me because I really don't think it's part of any of the deals/trades etc I've got cookin at that moment.

And before you suggest it, it's not the Easter Bunny, the Lock Fairies or Santa Claus, for sure. Santa always does red and green packages, the Easter Bunny has only ever given me crap chocolate (bastard!), and Pickie Dust always falls out of the others.

I know half the problem is I mislaid half of my short-term memory during the 90s, but could some one just put me out of my embarrassment on this one?

Re: The MrAnybody Collection

I just got 2 really cool designs for the collection from Marduk28 who's going viral with the Forever D lock.

That D lock has now been featured on Gizmodo, and his vid is getting close to a million views in its first week as a result.

I'd made this deal with him a couple of days before the D lock went public.

Huge thanks to Markduk28 for these 2 really cool locks.

Enjoy, enjoy :hbg:

Just received my dual-key lock from Marduk, too! It is very high on the 'Cool Scale'. :)

Awesome!

Very glad you guys enjoy your locks!

Whenever I talk about how cool some of these locks are to my Taiwanese friends they look at me like I am crazy, haha. It's nice to know that you guys can appreciate them as much as I do!

I will be on the hunt for more!

Re: The MrAnybody Collection

It’s been awhile since I did any updates to my collection albums, but now I’ve had a chance to do I’ve done some of them.

Here’s some of the highlights:

A French Pollux push lock. This one is the 5 pin variety.
Image

A Tigris Premier. A really cool design I’ve been after for some time now. With a corresponding indent on the bitting of the key that depresses a small nipple on the tip of the 6th key pin. If it's not depressed to the correct degree, it's no go. Really unique design. A UK lock possibly made by Gege.
Image

A DOM iX-6KG. With its mobile ball element in the key. I have the iX-5 and iX-10 of the same, and I’m really happy to complete the set for comparison.
Image

A 10 lever Ingersoll rim cylinder. A really challenge to pick with it’s dampening to subdue feedback
Image

A 6 pin Winkhaus cutaway done by the legendary Snowyboy with a mad bitting.
Image
Image

A very cool Abloy Disklock Pro. Now I have that to compare with the Abloy Exec system, and the Protec.
Image

A few Ruko 6 pin cylinders with some great bittings
Image

A very cool ANKEH Cruciform Push Lock Padlock from you know who. I’ve not tried picking this one yet, but it will be fun for sure.
Image
Image

A Chinese double cylinder dimple push lock from you know who too
Image
Image

A sweet little Fichet push lock padlock. No idea how old this one is.
Image
Image

There’s a lot more than that, but there’s just some of them to get yer taste buds going. You can find the rest of my collection here

Enjoy, enjoy :hbg:

Re: The MrAnybody Collection

That Ankeh is the same as the Siter? It looks like a mod of the Siter tool would work on the Pollux too!

Nice man, as always.

Re: The MrAnybody Collection

I had a very cool padlock with a surprise arrived in the mail today. If anyone can give me any date, history or any details on this, that would be a real bonus.



Here's my original post links to the whole collection.

Enjoy, enjoy ..... :hbg:

Very high quality photos! Impressive. You have probably posted your technique before, but how about a picture of your photo setup?

Thanks, escher.

I use a white IKEA storage box turned on it's side as a light box. Natural light (no flash), and a Nikon P7700 on Close Up focusing mode on a tripod. That's pretty much it.
