Re: Hello from Edinburgh, Scotland...

Hi Mike,

I'm just into picking-up picking again; I last did it in the army some 45 years ago. Having a hard time with 3 locks out of the 28 I have; American 1106, Master Lock 570 and an Abus 72/40. Have picked the other 25.

I'll get there though...

Philip

Re: Hello from Edinburgh, Scotland...

Well damn, sounds like you're getting back into it with a vengeance and comin' along nicely.

You're certainly in a good place for progress. Post specific questions if/when you're stumped, and you're sure to get some suggestions.

I myself have reached a, mmm, decent or so-so level of picking... I'll call it efficient. But some of the folks around here truly blow my mind. People might laugh, but I'm convinced some of the best lock pickers in the world reside here!

Re: Hello from Edinburgh, Scotland...

Welcome to the board mate. Oldfast is right, some of the best pickers in the world look in here from time to time, it's a good spot to be.

Any questions, even a dumb one, ask away and someone is going to help you out.

Best wishes,

Michael.

If only, Squelchtone, if only. As far as lock-picking and machining go, Huxley Pig is a genius; I, sadly, am not. I thank you for reminding me tht Huxley Pig sent me an email earlierthis week. It is my wish to purchase his finest wares. I must reply to him asap...

I thank you for your welcome to the site Michael.

The site has gained further credibility, since it has been confirmed that you are a member.

You have already helped me greatly, with my quest for a key for my Assa Ruko 2, on another site...

Hello to you rphillips52, good to speak to you.

I'm assumig the 52 part of your name is your year of birth; mine is '53. Does a lock collector ever retire? Tell me more of you and your collection.

Philip
