  1. hi Bill! when gutting these half cylinders there is no reason to use the pining shoes. a regular follower will work just fine. you only need the show for the double sided cylinders. I've gutted the E-60 half cylinder I have here with just a regular plastic follower many times without a problem.

  2. Brilliant! You get better and better each video Bill, I've watched all your videos now and have been completely hooked for almost a year, many more to come I hope 🙂

  3. Great lock! Good to see Bill in his finest default fumbling gutting mode😁 Pins were not too radical but the warding seemed tricky. I have not used these for Euro's but Foxxy at redcatimaging makes a great looking piece of kit in 3D with the metal bar thingy. Maybe he can donate a set if he feels sorry enough for you!😁hehe. Always entertaining Bill.✌🙃

  4. Hey Bill, think I found you the pinning shoe you want. If you type into the utube search. " Dirk using a pinning shoe " I am sure this is the one you want. As always good job…

  5. Bill, that thin you stuck on there works as the follower.
    Just slide it out carefully and extract the pins from the back.
    If the springs are too strong you can keep a finger inside to keep it pinned down.
    Or just shim it and then insert the follower like you did now.

    Any of these should work in order of likelihood.
