...I've compiled a few vids from some of the other members here. Thanks to all for allowing me to use them!
Some of these will help illustrate some of the points I've made. Others have a style all their own. And some I just love watchin'.
There's no shortage of videos on various American locks. Continue searching and you'll find hundreds more.

Re: AMERICAN LOCK

WOW... I dunno what to say! I've taken SO MUCH from this forum and don't always feel like I'm able to return the favor. Your wonderful feedback and approval of the article reassures me that I have indeed given something back this time :D And that THRILLS me!! Granted, there was a couple months when I was unable to devote much time to this, but it took roughly 8 months. Looking at the article now posted in its' entirety... it doesn't look that long! HAHA!! But as I've said before, NOTHING comes natural to me. Some parts of this were very exciting, while other parts became very tedious and long. Knowing it won't get buried deep within the depths of this forum is just awesome. Thanks for applying some adhesive! I hope this is enjoyed by many for a long time to come.

Now that the compliments are out of the way... lol... let me remind everyone that the time alotted to EDIT a post is 1 month from the day you post it. So if you guys can think of anything that shoud be added or have any constructive critisism... PLEASE SPEAK UP! Now's the time to do it. The goal here is to help others learn and enjoy, and we can do that better collectively.

Corey - thanks for reminding me of your other vid. I've added it to the mix. Hope ya don't mind I renamed it :wink:

Cyrano - LOL you know how I feel bout your vid... good stuff! Honestly, I planned to have it in the mix, but in a
rush to get all this posted prior to going to work I forgot more than just yours. I'll add yours now, and I'm waiting
on a response from a couple of others to allow me to use theirs.

And Awol - Yeah, I had a hard time choosing just one. lol

Re: AMERICAN LOCK

Riy, that's insanely good to know!! I may contact you to discuss this further :)

I'm very curious as to just how much power this "super duper edit button" of yours possesses. lol
