An Evva GPS, has spools & close tolerances, but a fairly tame keyway by Evva's standards.

My Banham M2002 cylinder from MrAnybody arrived today & I've just picked it.
The lock has a fixed cam, so the position of the cam verifies that the lock is picked & plug turned.

I can only record video using my phone, and I can't hold it & pick at the same time, but here is a video showing the plug moving : http://youtu.be/cJ92sNxLEj0

Nice one, Mark. Huge congrats on nailing that, and I'm really happy you're enjoying it.

I'm hearing a few reports of them being picked now. But until I'd mentioned it, I'd heard of none. Great to know.

Great stuff.

It was last week and not today, but I picked all these locks in one sitting. Some I had opened before, some were new. What you don't see are the ones that got away; the ones I have yet to pick.

I spent that day watching YouTube lockpicking videos while SPP'ing these locks. It was a good day.

Re: What have you picked today

A good day indeed! Nice job Tedium... and welcome to the forum.

Towards the top left - a 532 and some Commandos? Well done.
And the brass numbers on the bottom row - some more spools! :)

Definitely some great picks there. I remember conquering my first 532....
was certainly different than what I was use to. Felt good when that plug turned.

Thanks, Oldfast. Your videos are among the bazillions I've watched in my short picking experience. Thank you for that.

Re: What have you picked today

OK, I have the Serepick Bogota set and it rakes open nearly everything I stick it in (phrasing!) But I have no experience using the set's diamond pick. So today I went to single pin picking with it. Here are the results:

I know there's a bunch of Master locks in there as well as some no-name Chinese ones, but for me, this was pretty good. The experience made me feel a lot better about carrying just the Bogotas instead of a Peterson tri-fold case full of gear.

Re: What have you picked today

First BEST opening ever.
You get the idea...

Jeff Moss supplied the core and BosnianBill supplied the padlock body. Here is where it gets interesting; I picked it open while watching BosnianBill pick open a lock from Jeff Moss which also happened to be...an American. :roll: Okay, didn't quite make it into the coincidence hall of fame. It was video 183 in case you're wondering. Thanks to JM and BB!

Re: What have you picked today

After feeling bad about not being able to pop a few and seeing the piles on here, I decided to make a pile of my own. Just some I felt comfortable with to boost my self esteem. Took about an hour for the locks and about twenty minutes for the cubes and cleanup. Most of the time was soaked up by the two Corbins. Have opened them before but they got me today. The little bastard and the ASSA made me pretty frustrated earlier. The bastard did fall for the first time though with another attempt. Pulled it out of a knockoff American. The spools don't give noticeable (to me) counter rotation. I had to feel the pins and rotate back manually to see if they move.

Does anyone else do this kind of stuff? I was once serious about it but only do it occasionally now.
