Tubular Tension Wrench

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get some tubular lock tension wrenches. I've been wanting to try my hand, but I don't wanna fork out the $80 or so, as I'm broke at the moment.

Re: Tubular Tension Wrench

Agreed. However I really don't have the hand nor the supplies to make something of that nature. We'll see if some plans of mine work out with sheet metal and a fabricator...

Re: Tubular Tension Wrench

That sure looks like the double ended warded pick with two sizes of tubular tension wrenches in the middle that in Eddie the Wire's toolmaking book. You might be able to download a copy at ScribD, or some vendors sell the printed version.

Only place I've ever seen on the internet that sells them is Ideal Creations at http://www.idealcreations.net/ls03.htm. Couldn't find a price.

After you pick the lock, you'll have to hold the pins in place or you'll have to keep picking it. I've heard of clay, paper, and dental floss being used.

If you have a grinder or dremel, a good material might be a stainless steel ruler from wally world.

Re: Tubular Tension Wrench

i saw that video before. it looks like with some drain snake and hand files you could do it. wiz told me that all you need is a dowel,some rubber bands,and some wiper inserts (small) and you can pick it. i don't have any real reason or any motivation to pick those tyes of locks,so i never tried it.
