Here was my tool I made back in 2008 (I believe referenced by datagram earlier in this thread). It’s not capable of opening the MCS, but merely proved that individual rotors could be manipulated 360 degrees with some precision. Thanks to Barry Wels & Hans Fey I had the opportunity to show to this to EVVA at the Essen security show that year on a V1 MCS. This particular tool (stamped with a 1) I traded to Barry for a V2 MCS. I still have tool #2. The magnet used is a rotor magnet from a V1 lock which I drilled a second tiny hole in to attach the wire. The post is actually from the rotor shell which encases the magnet, I cut the post out and glued it to the center of the hole, works like a charm. These parts are only available from the V1 lock which used metal rotors and thicker magnets, so limited supply. Due to the way the wire has to be guided this tool really can’t scale to rotate 4 magnets or use a V2 magnet. But the basic concept works at least.
While at Essen that same year I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Drumm (of the Geminy Drumm lock protector). He doesn’t speak English so the conversation was via translation. But he described making a tool he claimed to defeat the MCS. This is to be taken with a grain of salt of course as his thing was trying to prove why you needed to buy the Gemini lock protector. However he indicated his tool worked by somehow spinning the rotors in the lock very fast as you applied tension, the rotors would all catch quickly. I heard multiple versions of the story where he claimed he mailed this tool to an SSDEV member and it was “lost in the mail”. Again, grains, salt, and rumors of things that no one ever actually laid eyes on.
Anyway, these are some old ghost stories from an old fart. Again, big congrats to droshi.
