Re: Chris Ahrens Lockpicking heavens gate YouTube channel

That's some wonderful picking, Chris! You really do have the gift man!

When you picked your Twin 6000s with Gin-Bottle spools did you find that the spools bottomed out only after you set the sidebar? Which is to say, did you fall into a deeper false after picking into the countermilling trap and then setting the sidebar? I found this to be the case, and was wondering about your experience.

Yes it would go into a deeper false set that was virtually impossible to get out. I would try not to fully set the side bar just one pin from setting then set the drivers that kept them from going fully in the counter milling

Re: Chris Ahrens Lockpicking heavens gate YouTube channel

I have only picked one, but it actually alternated between the top pins and sidebar binding.
So I'd poke the top pins until the sidebar bound, pick 1-2 side pins and there's nothing more binding, pick more top pins, etc.
This seems to be the exception rather than the rule for these? Maybe this is how they are intended to act but they never got the tolerances down to get them to behave like this consistently.

The top pins were never impossible to get out of a false set by the way, but the feedback was really poor.

Once the top pins got into the false set it wasn't to bad like you said lack of feedback, but if I didn't get that false set I would get nothing at all. Thanks for watching and your comment I appreciate it
