Re: Members Say Hi

Hi, my name is Bill and I've been picking on and off for years.
Was very interested in locksmithing as a kid but never got any formal training.
Ended up working IT for 10 years and did most of the physical security stuff for my IT department.
I like making my own tools and have started to collect old padlocks.
I kept bumping into this place when I was recently looking for info on tubular locks and decided to join.

I just got these Dyna-lok padlocks and have cut keys for all but two.

Re: Members Say Hi

Hi, my name is Sullivan, and I'm a lock-picking-holic. :razz:

I've been picking alot for a couple years, but i started learning back about 8 years ago. I did some basic locksmithing training that got me back into it a couple years ago.
I'm just out of the US Navy and will gladly give any other branches the verbal lashing they deserve.
I would die for a set of Violaetor picks (i've been stalking the boards staring at pictures for the last couple years at least but never joined for some reason).
I hate spool pins with a passion (my hands shake sometimes and I just dont have the fine motor control during that to properly lift the pins without oversetting; the good news is that it helps me set serrated pins like a champ xD).
I hope to get to know the community a bit better and maybe pick up some pointers along the way. :D

Re: Members Say Hi

Hi, My name is John and I am a lockaholic, going on ten years now. I have been a member here for almost a year and have so far just been lurking in the shadows and reading everything possible. Currently manipulation and impressioning are what drive me nuts. I have read everything available on both subjects and have been amazed by oldfast and his videos and posts. Bought femurats book before joining this sight. I am a semi-retired heavy equipment field mechanic, currently a locksmith and landlord/maintenace crew of 1. I am interested in ammunition reloading and shooting it too, also a member of Front Sight in Nevada. I am amazed at the information available on this sight and hope to contribute more in the future. I will change my member name as soon as I get a chance, this one was done quickly to get back to my lock habit. Looking forward to hearing from members and learning more in the pursuit of my lock habit. :soldier:

Re: Members Say Hi

Welcome John, I'm Mike.

Thank you for the kind words, and I'm excited to hear you've enjoyed some of what I've shared around here. Truth is, I will never be able to give back what this forum (and the folks around here) have given me over the years. But I'll keep tryn' :D A truly wonderful place this is... in so many ways. Glad you're here.

Jeff from Lake Havasu City, AZ USA. Hobby picking for about 6 months. I can get through most locks in time and have a good understanding of the different characteristics of security pins. But some locks just don't want to act nicely to me.
