American Lock

This week we will go with American lock for "lock of the week", that way more people can get in on it... Don't worry, Abloy will be next week.

Have fun.

Re: American Lock

Crunch, crunch, crunch... music to my ears viewtopic.php?p=58393#p58393

Matt's always finding and sharing nice links. Here's the American Lock service guide
viewtopic.php?p=46509#p46509

Also, a while back, Matt had asked for some help with serrated pins. He quickly began
killing Americans... so I can only assume there's some good advice within this thread....
viewtopic.php?p=49617#p49617

Another piece of writing shared here on the forum on picking serrated pins...
viewtopic.php?p=44#p44

Also, someone at some time (mdchurchill?) had posted some pictures of an American and a 'Master American'
for comparison so people could tell the difference between the two. Size, keyway, etc. If I cannot find this
post, I'm sure it's buried deep somewhere. If anyone finds it, I think a link here would be useful to people.

I want one of those one day, I just can't see paying for it though. They are very pricey. When I win the lottery I will get one. I'm stuck still buying tools for work and being a single dad of a 10 year old boy I'm always buying clothes and food.
