Day 258 of 366. This old American 747 padlock deserves two pictures.
I try not to pick rare locks because, believe it or not, picking locks ruin them. When I do it, I try to minimise damage. In this case, I picked the lock with the shackle already open, so I could use extremely light tension. This lock has a very hard return spring. It pops open with a loud CHUNK!

Cheers :)

Day 259 of 366. This was the opposite situation than yesterday. To avoid ruining my pick with this rusty padlock, I used a commercial one.

Day 260 of 366. As a kid I've always been fascinated by cruciform locks. This one has 3 rows of 2 pins. The key has four cuts on 3 sides, so it can be used from both sides of the door. After picking it the first time, it rotates 90 degrees and only 2 rows at a time are active, and it became a lot easier. To make a full turn I picked it four times.

Cheers :)

Re: Happy 2020!

The American looks fantastic. Worth 2 pictures.
Your legendary pick stands far above any commercial pick so it makes perfect sense to sacrifice such a lower tool.
The first crucifix I saw made me marvel as well as a kid.

Good stuff Femurat! It's no pain to follow you for 366 opens.
