ACE cutaway

May I say, I really like these Ace padlocks. These ran $4 each and are way harder to pick than they should be. Nothing special but for some spool pins, but somehow just so damn hard to pick.

Been picking for a while, but just getting into milling. First attempt:

I suppose the next step would be to mill the cylinder. Can't find a good way to get it into the vise though.

:agree: My few experiences with them have been similar.
It's surprising yeah, but some of them do tend to be difficult!

Beautiful job on the milling! That last one looks really neat.
