Re: Members Say Hi

Hello all my name is bobby and I'm from northern Michigan. I am a mild mannered logger by day and lock picking enthusiast the rest of the time. My fasanation with locks started about 25 years ago with a bobby pin and a fireproof lock box. My main intrests now is collecting as much knowledge as I can about the high security padlocks that fuel my true love. I look forward to the discussions that only collected wisdom can bring and hope to be able to share any insight I may have. Thanks again and best of luck to what ever project is in/at hand.

Re: Members Say Hi

Just wanted to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Kirk. I am a locksmith by trade. I'm also a former Navy SEAL and Retired Federal Air Marshal. I love what I do and appreciate a good lock. An old saying of mine is "Behind every bandage there is a story, the bigger the bandage, the better the story." I've had a lot of bandages...

Re: Members Say Hi

Hey Kirk,

Let me be the first to welcome you to the forum.

Seems like you may have acquired a few skills of your own, I look forward to reading your posts.

Being a little bit of a pessimist 'behind every bandage is a scab' made me chuckle sorry, take care Kirk and have a great day

Kind regards. Lance. England U.K

Re: Members Say Hi

Hey everyone! I'm new!

I'm a UNIX Systems Engineer by day. Information security is a required part of my job, but to be perfectly honest, I don't find it all the interesting. I do find physical security interesting, probably because I watch too many spy and heist movies.

I started picking in the mid 1990's when I was in college. I learned from the MIT guide and some zine style book that I managed to pick up somewhere. The only "pick" I have ever made was a ground down steak knife that did a great job ruining my Dremel, but utterly failed to ever open a lock.

I got back into picking a year or so ago when a coworker dropped an old American Series 50 on my desk and asked me to open it. Unable to, I started reading up on security pins and finally, after much hand cramping, I managed to get it open. From there I went looking for harder and harder locks, which finally landed me on keypicking where I started lurking. Using the materials provided by xeo and Oldfast, I recently managed to learn the basics of Medeco Biaxial picking. I'm currently at the point where I have my wife select and install pins in a configuration unknown to me. I have another cylinder on its way, which I plan to have her unbox and keep the key. My most immediate goal is to be able to pick ANY Medeco Biaxial.

Future projects are:

Medeco Metrolock 52-5 (snagged it on eBay)
ASSA Twin
Mul-T-Lock 7x7

Based on the safe chronicles of Oldfast, I'm also developing an interest in manipulation.
