Thank you.

It's a very important barrier overcomed for me, picking an UL rated lock.
I know it's nothing special, but to me it means a lot, so to everyone who helped me directly or indirectly, thank you!

Just poped the ignition of a Smart:

7 wafer lock. Nothing special about it, but all the goo and dirt inside it dampened the hole thing. Got to something that felt like a false set (on a wafer lock? lol) many times and couldn't get it done. Untill finally:

Now I have to make a key for it! :mrgreen:

P.S. - For those who don't know which car is a Smart, here it is: http://www.tuning.online.pt/noticias-tuning/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/smart-lorinser-02.jpg

Medeco Biaxial 6 pin

Still not consistent, it was just my first time picking it with 6 pins. But I'll get it eventually!
Used a short hook with a small groove I made in it.


Fantastic job, Filipe! I was betting it would not be long before you picked a Medeco. :-)

Who were you betting with? Did you win a lot of money, or didn't you trust me enough? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


Picked it a couple more times by now. But I still feel a bit of luck when I succeed. The rotation still messes with my head. And sometimes, after not succeeding for a bit, I give it a violent rake and get it after a bit. Which means I still need to practice a lot on these :armed:

Russwin core removed for Jeff. Thought this was a cool looking return spring. Never saw something like this before. It is pretty strong.

I have killed enough locks to be labeled a serial killer but have no up loaded vid to prove it you will have to take my word for it .

Serial killers, by nature, tend to take SOME sort of trophy
from their victims - be it a shoe, a picture, or a finger...lol

Nevertheless, I do beleive you, and will take your word for it. lol

AB keeps one spring from each lock he kills. So far, his collection of springs weighs 28 pounds! :-D
