Sort of... I've made lots of tools but no dies yet. lol

I wanted to make it out of brass then i realized how expensive a 2" round can be. Tool steel might actually be cheaper.... I wonder if I could keep the holes straight?

Thanks! Nothing too fancy here. CNC lathe, mill and CO2 laser. I use them for prototyping and small productions of vape gear. Occasional odd jobs as well.

Here are some better shots of the keys and pins. You can see how the front 2 rows really block access to the others.

What they all said ----- AWESOME !!!!!!

Have you considered patenting the design. I'm sure there are some unique features that would allow this.

May as well make something from it before it is ripped off.

Give it a name and a "Patent pending" designation. Maybe HT4 could give you some advice.

Again Awesome :hbg: :hbg:

The thought crossed my mind though I don't know what application would benefit from this design. Any ideas?

Sooo many pins...I made each row the same cut for ease of assembly lol!

The rod in the center was machined separately and pressed into place:

Re: 26 Pin Tubular/Dimple Lock

OK, let's have some fun here. Make it really, really difficult to pick. Can you do counter-milling in the bible? How about some ASSA style Christmas tree driver pins?

Oh, yeah, baby. The stuff of picking nightmares. Muhahahaaa :twisted:

Really great stuff! The machine work you have done is amazing.
