  1. Hi Bill, long time viewer. Thanks for all the great videos. I've been a hacker for a long time, but recently have decided to improve my skill level. Thanks for the tips and variety of locks.

  2. I just ordered my first set of Peterson picks. I can't wait to learn how to start picking. I've greatly enjoyed watching your videos. Please continue uploading quality content like this. 

  3. Very interesting….. I have a snapped unbranded euro cylinder that must have same sort or bar in it as there is a hole in the cylinder with a bit of metal popping out as if to stop the plug turning. I dont have a working key for it but picked it a few times. Did not know what was going on at first as was getting no feedback at all, so jiggled round in bottom of keyway as a hunch and the pug turned a bit. I was then able to get feedback from pins.

  4. grate vid as usual, just getting started picking. is there any locks you would be willing to sell that i would teach me how to work with different pins as i can only find locks with standard ones and how to control my tension properly. once i get myself going i will send you some challenge locks.

  5. Nice work on the Everest, also nice pinning tray.  You must have a blast cabinet as well, since it appeared to have a very uniform finish after machining.

  6. hi bill question: for how long are you emigrated from bosnia. and why.
    and why are you locksmith. haha sorry for my english it's not that good 

  7. If you put an undersized serrated pin in a threaded hole with a very strong spring, that should get you some proper trouble, right?

  8. Awesome picking again Bill ! How do you know if a lock has a "detent" pin if you dont see the key ? Is there a way if knowing, a trick ??

  9. Nice picking Bill! I'd sure love to get my hands on some of these locks to try picking on camera if you ever have some that are able to be forwarded on. I'm coming up empty trying to get any decent locks to pick!
