If elbowmacaroni gives a thumbs up as well, I'd go for that. Maybe something like user submitted designs and then see which one we want to use. Could even make it an annual thing, a limited run of Keypicking shirts each year with a different user-submitted design each time.

I have a box of locks here donated by Selim. Another box in the garage, I'll have to go check the box in order to remember who donated those (whoever it was, I apologize for my poor memory). I'd put together a selection of locks as a prize for the winner.

Not sure how many folks would feel up to participating in that one, but it could be rather neat to see the results!

Re: It's high time for a contest! Seeking suggestions

With a cut away contest, how do you level the playing field? Hand tools only, maybe? Because the guys with the mills would have a huge advantage, realistically leaving the rest of us in their wake. I like the T-shirt idea. Mostly because some (like me) can draw up a design, others can use a computer (nearly everyone else!), but most can have a shot. Same with pick making. Most can have a shot at it, craftsmanship and creativity will win. Maybe make a theme that your pick most satisfy? ( What pick would St. Peter use if his gate got locked with the key inside?). Or something else as silly! ( What pick would Davey Jones use to open his locker?).

I had thought about that too...maybe we could do 2 different winners, one with a mill, and one with just hand tools/dremel, drill ect

MS's idea sounds like a good one for a pick making contest..... I LIKE IT!

The wire hanger that holds up his halo apparently.... :-) :P

I would say the t-shirt and theme related pick making contest are 2 good ones right there.

Re: It's high time for a contest! Seeking suggestions

Maybe two cutaway contest categories? One for hand-tools, and another for machining? Or we could just take the method making into account, e.g. maybe a hand-made one wouldn't look quite as nice as a machined one, but it would be more favorably scored due to how it was made.

I'd love to see a new contest pop up on here.
Howdy!
