Hello , nice to be a member of this forum. Was looking around to find like-minded people interested in picking for fun. I have been picking padlocks for a while now but now I've moved o trying my hand on 6 pin mortise locks. I came across some old Sargent mortises and turned them into practice locks. I made my first challenge lock yesterday and am now trying to pick it. I may have over reached my skill level. Interested in hearing from others and will post something soon. Have a great day.

Hey everybody... Been away and working a lot and just wanted to say hey, I haven't forgotten my favorite bunch of pickers and crackers ;) hopefully things are settling down and I can be more involved again soon. I've got about three pages of posts to catch up on, and by god I've GOT to start picking regularly again... went a good while without picking while I was learning about impressioning and manipulation and lever locks, and when I tried picking my favorite padlocks last week while I was stuck in a hotel with nothing else to do I quickly discovered how those skills disappear when you're not keeping them honed -- I could barely pick anything at all, and they were all locks I had picked dozens of times! It's all slowly coming back, but I've had to roll way back to my easy locks again. So I'm a little humbled by that, but at the same time it gave me a little better perspective on how much I had improved before I slacked off.
Anyway, just wanted to let you all know I'm back, and I missed it here... and don't be surprised if I reply to a bunch of posts from a month ago :)
Cheers,
Chad

Hi everyone! I'm Tony from L.A. 2 things got me hooked on opening locks. 1 - successfully opening a lock box that the construction guys forgot at my house and 2 - discovering a floor safe under my bedroom carpet. :safedial: I'll be posting about this next.

Hello to everyone from York, SC. I am here to maybe get a Mortise Lock identified that we have on a building that we purchased recently. The building is one of the Bunker Microwave Tower Sites built by the Bell System in the 50's and 60's during the cold war era. I will post the info and photos on a separate new post. Thanks for the acceptance on this site.posting.php?mode=reply&f=7&t=1067#
