FGarci03's Locks

Hey guys!

I decided to put my collection together and take photos of it.
I was inspired by MrAnybody's method (hope you dont mind I copy you :fu:) and uploaded it all to ImgUr.


So I divided my collection in 2 parts.

1. My permanent Collection - The locks I want to really have here, and are not up for trade or sale (this isn't, of course, iron clad. I can change my heart depending on the offer). You will notice some really cheap locks here too. I know it may sound strange, but I don't only collect expensive and/or exotic locks. I am a little picky and I also like to have very common locks like kwikset and schlage. Also locks with weird "Technologies", not necessarily expensive and/or rare. Yeah, that's me... The weirdo :mrgreen:

2. Surplus Locks - These are the locks that I might be willing to trade and or sell. It doesn't mean I'm willing to do it now, many of them still have to fall to the wrath of my picks before I let go of them. But they aren't the ones I am considering to keep for eternity!


More locks are yet to come, I'm waiting for some fun stuff. Others I still didn't take photos becuse I haven't cutted keys for them (you may notice that on my permanent collection ALL have keys) or didn't find them when I took the photos, and will wait untill my next photo session.

So the link is he........WAIT FOR IT.......re! HERE!

Have fun!

Filipe

P.S. - I will be VERY thankfull to anyone who can fill the lack of info there is on some locks. I will even be MORE thankfull to whoever corrects info that might be wrong. Please let me know, ok? :mrgreen:
Go ahead, keep plugging away, picking on me! You will end up on bypass or with rigor mortise.

Wonderful job you done there, my friend. Great light box technique.

It's really cool that you got some inspiration from mine. And I think I could improve mine now I see yours :smile: The angle you took the pics from is better I think. You got a better light balance too.

Really cool locks, my friend.

Thanks MrA!

But I gotta be honest with ya, I prefer the angles you took the pics.
And the lighting was just pure luck. I actually know shit about taking pictures. I just used my sister's camera and my "lightbox" is:

LOL lame, I know. I opened a window to allow daylight (NOT direct sunlight) to enter the room. And left all the work (automatic flash and focus) for the camera to calculate..

Re: FGarci03's Locks

Still haven't picked it. I have a couple wires but I bent them to small for this lock a while ago, and still didn't have the patiente to make new ones :razz:

Please do tell! I'm thinking about simple tools that can work well. I don't really like to pick these with wires, as they keep getting out of place :whip:

Re: FGarci03's Locks

This safe was made for lock pickers they left a gap between lock and the door and then left a hole in the lock above the key hole to the top left to insert wire .
check it out

remove the lock from the door to make your wire it needs to have the correct angle or bend to do this you will find you have to lift one lever at a time till fully inserted
when lock as been bolted back on.... then just a L SHAPED wire needed... fun :D

Re: FGarci03's Locks

Nice looking collection! I just wish that it included the locks that I tried to send you... I will get them to you! I still can't believe they went all the way there and then all the way back!!! Next time I know the proper way to send them.

Re: FGarci03's Locks

Lock PoooOOOOoooorn!!! :D Great photos, really. Nice job.

Sat down with a cup of coffee and slowly scrolled through these beautiful locks... good times.
Thanks so much for putting it all together and sharing. I know it can be very time consuming.
I very much look forward to seeing the additions as they come in :spinning:

There's a fair amount of my collection that is also comprised of some rather cheap and/or knock-off brand locks.
For me, I suppose some of it has to do with the timeline. Seeing the progressions along the way is kinda neat I guess.

Nothing too special, but I really like the Name on the key!

And a beutifull EVVA DPS thumbturn euro cylinder!

Have fun!

Re: FGarci03's Locks

The EVVA DPS is a fun lock. Was a bit surprised that the sidebar is entirely passive. Just ignore it when you are picking the lock. My first EVVA was a DPS with the older key bow.

Like my AGC, too. :mrgreen:
