Anything And Everything About Lock Picking
Ultimately I decided that for me, I couldn't ruin a lock like that. I have also drilled a hole in the side of the plug the size of a big neodymium magnet I had. I expoxyed the magnet in the hole. The hole ended about 2 mm from the side of pins 234 and 5. I then filed the protruding magnet from the edges of the plug so it was round and turned n8xe in the core. I tested it for hours and days making sure it wouldn't mess the lock up. It was great. Then I sent it to Texas Jim. Who promptly picked it open without any trouble. Cause he makes his picks out of stainless. Something I found out after. You can see the magnet in the plug on his video, but he doesn't even mention it cause he didn't even know it was there.
Lol it was still fun, and he can still send the lock to someone else.

Not that I know of. But then again I don't claim to know much lol. I know of magnetic locks that use magnets internally, but they all use magnetic "key" as well and I doubt they have a rotating core with springs and sheer line.
Especially when someone is using picks made from magnetic stock. I can just see the pick 'sticking' to each pin stack, killing feel.
...and there was my problem. I always figured sparrows picks were non magnetic stainless. I tested all my sparrows picks and the magnet stuck to them. My southord picks on the other hand had little attraction to the magnets. That makes sense why I could pick the lock that I modded later without difficulty with a southord pick.

The concept is the opposite. You need the magnet to lift the springless magnetic pin and separate it from his bottom friend.
Yes I said bottom. The euro profile cylinder is supposed to be mounted euro stile.
