Re: Members Say Hi

Hey there everyone!
Im new here (Forgive me for my poor grammar and spelling). I wanted to drop in and introduce myself. My name is Benjamin, im 30 years old and I just got out of the Army. I got a job at a small Ace Hardware recently and have spent some time making keys for customers. I gradually got more interested in locks and how they work. I went from cutting keys once in a while to watching lots of Lock picking lawyer and Bosnian bill videos on YouTube. Needless to say I got dragged into this hobby. So, I went on amazon and got my first set of clear practice locks and picks, It was a DISASTER. The tolerances are horrible and the picks are sharp and flimsy (from what I have read that's not desired?). Anyways, I bought a set of Southord Picks as well got permission to take a few junk locks from work home, I have made my way through 3 and one USPS lock I found on the ground outside my apartment. I also acquired a American Locks 1100 that I have had no luck with. I decided to get the Sparrow Revolver and am waiting on it to get here, once I learn and conquer that I will be moving up to Mr Wizards Supermax. Anything that can help me get more involved and/or learn more would be great.

Anyways, Thanks for letting me be a part of your community and allowing me to introduce myself.

Benjamin

Welcome to the forum. Don't just watch BB and LPL on YouTube, there are many Youtubers with good content channels.

Re: Members Say Hi

Oh I know, I'm searching and subscribing as I go. The algorithm still thinks I want mostly Lunkers, demo ranch and 3d printing stuff. eventually I will get better recommendations. I could use a few tips on good to watch channels and what exactly to look up. I was planning on buying a few different cores for the Revolver but im still not sure what I'm looking for lol.

Re: Members Say Hi

Hi, my name is Jason D. Stone from Portland, OR USA. I have been lockpicking since 2016. I currently am an Orange Belt on r/lockpicking on Reddit. I have just cracked an Abus 55/40, and my next lock I am working on is a Master Lock 911. My current goals are to crack a Master Lock 410 LOTO, Abus 74/40 LOTO, and an American 1100. I am on YouTube, but most of that contest is knife and knife sharpening related. I just got done building my tool kit, which has a Sparrows Sherman case stuffed.
