Re: What have you picked today

For a while now, I've been spinning more than picking.
So thought I'd bring a handful of Masters with me to the office.

Gotta say, it took me a disgusting amount of time to run through these a few times. lol
Couple of 532's on the far left. On the far right, a couple of 570's along with a 575.
Through the middle - their brass numbers - 130 up to the big ol' 6-pin 170.

Re: What have you picked today

Thanks, I really love the Deco styling myself. That's why I decided to buy them, really. I'd like to clean up that Ilco.

I should have posted the picked pix. Hm...maybe I'll do that now :) Darn, I'll have to pick them again.

Interestingly, while the Ilco turns both ways, it only opens counter-clockwise. The Crafstman only wanted to be picked clockwise.

I do wish I could gut them.

Re: What have you picked today

Thanks for the photos. Honestly, I believed you -- but it is a lovely sight to see them popped.

Anyway, gave you another excuse to pick them. :mrgreen:

Managed to get my American 1100 today. Wasn't even trying to hard and it just popped open.

Nice Mike! My picking skills have all but disappeared since I took up spinning. I'm just getting back into it and, well, let's just say you probably picked all of those in the time that it would take me to get just one.

Great job! I'm glad to see that you had a productive day at the office :)

I have an amazing grasp of the obvious. Beyond that, not so much.

Re: What have you picked today

It's kinda slim pickings around the house right so all I had that I hadn't done other than the front door was this little Bell bike lock.

Image

I kept flinging the tension tool out when I'd go to open it. Had it a few times before I got smart and used something else to turn it.

Re: What have you picked today

Two work picks today. I've been chewing on this Best that jeff sent me a while ago. I picked it to control today. I still can't pick it to operating in either direction...I must have picked it to control 20 times while trying, though :D

Image

This is the Arrow that I took out of my bank's door. The keyway was really tight for SPPing, so I figured I'd give the city rake a go. It popped open in about 4 seconds!

Re: What have you picked today

I picked this lock today, for fun. It took me a little time. About 5 minutes with a dedicated Lishi.

Re: What have you picked today

So I'm sitting at work. My crew know I'm into lockpicking and one guy in particular has been as well for a long time. For him it's just a hobby and something he does on occasion. So he brings me this lock today,
"Here's your challenge. I've worked on it for years since I bought it in Germany and have never picked it"
so I reply, "So you won't get mad if I manage to pop it open"
"Nope."

challenge accepted. He hands me a Burg 217/40. Keyway is really tight for the minimal toolset I have (just standard Southord stuff). After about 2 hours of false set after false set I had success.

score 1 more for me!

Re: What have you picked today

Nice work! it can be very difficult working a large pick in a small keyway. That is why I make a lot of my own picks, including some small ones.

Re: What have you picked today

The wife found this little guy abandoned and saved him from a hard life on the street, I had some time to kill and all i has was this lock and a set of Credit card picks in my wallet so I thought Why not ;)

first time it took 5min, then I tried again and it fell in less than 30sec.
