Thanks man! I was just wondering why that did not seem to be working.

I picked up another six-pin Medeco Biaxial so that I eliminate some of the advantages I had been using. Things like progressive pinning and studying the key.

This is a KIK challenge lock from Texas Jim. It has all custom made pins and pin-in-pin for all six of the drivers.

Thanks man! I spent so much time with that lock, pnning it in nearly every imaginable combination. Getting it open fully pinned for the first time on camera was quite a thrill! I cannot fathom picking one blind at this point. Hopefully with practice it will be possible, but it seems a long ways off at this point.

Having found a replacement for the lost original old-style spool, I picked the ASSA Twin 6000 again, this time in its original configuration.

Awesome work dude. I use a little toothed pick so I can wobble the sliders up and down, did you not find it super-difficult only pushing from one direction? To detect if it is binding or set? I know that others use a little fibre optic light to light up the keyway and visually inspect it as well as picking it.

Thanks man! I actually did find it really difficult to tell if the pins were set, in partial gates or in false gates. Only pushing on them from one direction made it really difficult to tell by feel, so I spent a lot of time looking inside the keyway. I didn't illuminate it with a fiber optic light or anything, but the 100W bulb gave me enough to see inside and tell if the sliders moved slightly when I touched them with my pick. It was also fairly tricky to tell exactly which slider I was manipulating at various points. I'm really interested in the tool you have been using! It sounds as if being able to really hook onto the slider and put pressure on it both up and down would really really help! Would you mind sharing a photo of it with me?

Probably the first five minutes of my video is me pushing things around and trying to get myself oriented. I found that once I got the lock to a certain point, reading the sliders became much much easier because of the way they would settle into their gates. A sharp snap was a true gate while more subdued snap was usually a false gate or a partial gate. I did need to get enough initial rotation on the core though before these indicators would present themselves.

I pretty much used every trick I could think of. Tapping on sliders and using as many senses as I could muster to figure out what was going on. At times they sounded loose. Other times I could visually tell that they were jiggling and set. Very very rarely could I actually "feel" that they were set, again, because I was only pushing on them from one direction and they were not pushing back with springs.

Thanks for watching the video and sharing your thoughts!

Interested in hearing from others who have worked on this one. I was surprised to not find much on it.
