  1. dan seems to be burning pickers. I looked to Google to get some and there's complaints they sent money got nothing and Zero response. not cool

  2. $15 dollars each? Good god! You need to look into asking Dan about orders that were paid for and never sent out. If you dont get a response I hope you take this video down. Please.

  3. I don't want to be one to nitpick, but I really feel like those picks look like they match Sparrow's picks. At least you were given them gratis.

  4. Bill, I've been thinking of ordering a set of Dan's picks and I was hoping you might share what you think of them now that you've had them for a while. It looked like the pick and tension wrench were a bit big for the lock he sent you, but I was wondering if it was just for that lock, or are his picks and wrench tough to fit into most keyways? It looks like the picks are high quality, but maybe a bit large. Also, how do you find the feedback with these picks? How do you like these after having used them for a few months now? Thanks.

  5. Well to tell you the truth HPC wasent the greatest set I ever had, metal is weak, handles are in metal to my preference they make my fingers hurt some time, the hooks are to weak, they're not polish like yours, edges are rough, and it came with no bogota, this kit came with like over 30 50 pieces including the tension wrenches, to me to much picks that I have never used, the one that Bosnianbill haves looks enough, maybe a couple of tension wrenches and a narrow hook for thinner key ways, the price(was a gift from a fellow locksmith friend) but it retails about $125 give or take. 

  6. Thanks for the showcase Bill and your advises. You are a inspiration to the lock art community and to me.
    I have a set of Bogatas in design that will be on there way shortly to you.
