Re: American 1105 help?

yeah i have never seen them for sell at stores either. only lock shops.
except they sell them at the highschool by my house in the student store... or at least they did, i havent been by there in a while... i heard that many schools get them for a discount.... try checking around at like college bookstores & such.. they may have them.... just a thought.

Use very light top of the keyway tension, and I mean very light. Then carefully "scrub" the pins. You'll feel a few of them drop and the plug will rotate a few degrees. Keep scrubbing and soon the plug will rotate 15 degrees giving you the false set. Once you do that - just set the remaining pin(s) and you are done.

Re: American 1105 help?

I think it was awol who experimented with puting serrations on the tok wrench to add grip. I've tried myself on my own tok homebrews with minimal luck hehe.
I'm thinking after the holidays are done and over maybe I'll get ahold of awol and order myself the real deal so to speak :D

... almost forgot... if yer tok is a homebrew, make sure that the (tooth?) is just long enough to fit snug in the keyway but not so long that it connects the first pin. I had that problem with mine when I first made one, and had to shorten it a great deal.

Hope that helps some!
