Home brew seems to be a show case of finished items and projects. I would like to see a development forum, where new ideas can be introduced, suggestions for new items, work in progress and a place to re-invent the world. For example , would a calibrated mechanical hammer work better with bump keys on those locks, that do not at present open .... could rake keys be made to work on all locks .... micro-processor controlled tools, micro vibrators for rake picks .... experimental work and problems etc..

That would be a great thread. It's making me dizzy thinking about.
I'm still trying to get my head around not smacking my fingers with a bump hammer.

Reinventing the homebrew section where we would discuss ways to reinvent tools that are in the homebrew section. :lol: You gave me an idea for a good post. Thank you.

i'm not sure there isn't already a thread for this, but i think it'd be good to have a list of upcoming events, like conventions, expos, etc., etc.
