Re: Picking the Medeco Classic/Biaxial

It is a Peterson DCAP lifter pick it is cupped out on end to help with lifting and rotating I bent it on pin four reaching around pin 3. So that is why it is bowed back a little, DCAPS aren't all that strong when u start getting farther back into the lock they are thin and tend to bend easily

Re: Picking the Medeco Classic/Biaxial

So here's my contribution to the thread:

Image :fu:

I done the switch lock so that just leaves the classic and the biaxial I think.

Done the M3 in my hand so in the vice is next. One step at a time though! Now where's that MCS?!

Re: Picking the Medeco Classic/Biaxial

Hey huxleypig, nice job on that Chubb. Does your lock have the slider? It's just a thing you have to press after you've picked it, but it distracted me many times before I managed to pick mine.

Cheers :)

Re: Picking the Medeco Classic/Biaxial

Yes but I pushed it down before I set the last pin. Whenever it binds I push it. What a waste of time that slider is!

Re: Picking the Medeco Classic/Biaxial

I have a Medeco I'd like to try if I ever get past my Americans. Could you guys post some pictures of the tools you use to pick them? Thanks!

Re: Picking the Medeco Classic/Biaxial

Thanks, sour. I'll have to try it. I'd heard about some people using a hook with a groove cut in it and I thought I was going to have to make something, which terrifies me because I'm horrible with tools.

I tried that and it was okay, but nothing special really. If I were you I would just go with a normal short hook and really learn how to turn the pins with it.
