The personal touch will occur when Femurat's father find the lock missing from his workbench drawer. :D

Gordon, nice one, you really made me laugh! This lock is the only thing I saved from his old workbench, so no beating ahead :)

Day 242 of 366. A very nice tubular lock. I like the clear feedback. Solid pin? Push. Long and soft spring? Skip. Very short and strong spring? Set!

Cheers :)

Same with mine. Nice to pick indeed! Just that bit of motion on a set pin :)

Day 244 of 366. A prototype I got a few years ago, when I made a test for a lock manufacturer. Different locks with different ideas to make them more secure. This one has different strength springs to defeat some self impressioning tools. I spp it so it's still possible to pick it, but it's much more fun!

Cheers :)

Day 245 of 366. Four pins, well, eight to be precise. It's nice to pick something unusual but not too difficult. Make me feel confident.

Cheers :)

Day 247 of 366. My grandmother's old door lock. The cylinder screw has so much paint, the installer of the new door couldn't remove it. Had to cut the door in half to remove it. They were pretty upset for the extra work my mother asked them to do to save it. I'm gonna keep it like this. It's too funny.

Cheers :)
