  1. Hi I was just wondering were you get you lifter if that is the right word. The ones you are always using in your videos. I am a locksmith in south Africa and would like to get some for my self. 

  2. The Abus 90RK/50 is custom repined so beware of its evilness 😉 Remember that the EVVA 3KS cutaway only has ONE sidebar inserted; it should make the manipulation easier. The second sidebar is removed and gives you the opening which is needed to see the notches of the sliders. This way you can see more clearly what is “going on” inside. I do sell those Titanium tweezers but they are quite expensive. If someone is seriously interested in them just let me know! I am reconstructing my website right now and the webshop will hopefully be online soon. The Abus Pins are the original C83 series pins from Abus. There are 8 different pins sizes in total and 2 different spools at least. There is a third spool which Abus, according to my knowledge, does not deliver to the locksmiths. Best wishes, Adrian Weber – Security Elements

  3. Okay here is some more information for you guys! The first lock shown is the Abus Bravus 4000 made by Pfaffenhain. The Bravus 4000 features 6 active main pins and 5 active pins in a second row which are coupled with a control bar. At least I believe sidebar is only passive and therefore more of a control bar. Additionally it also features 4 inactive profile pins on the top and the interactive Deltus Pin of course. I have the factory cutaway here which is the ONLY cutaway I have ever seen that comes with a manual that covers a full page. It also features 3 different keys to demonstrate how the Deltus pin can lock the core in rotation once you use a wrong key or try to manipulate it. Adrian Weber – Security Elements

  4. 5:00 I'm glad you brought up that it was your 3d printer.  I was starting to freak out that someone broke into my house and that the printer was going in the other room!

  5. Well done! Love watching you open packages lol…like a kid at xmas.
    Take heart, spring is coming. Not sure where u are but for us on lake Ontario, short and long range forcast calls for mild days and not so cold nites on the way for March and a nice April.

  6. +Bosnianbill, I have nothing to do with locks. Just fond your videos random on youtube. I've subscribed about 3-4 months ago and watched your videos ever since. I think I will try to learn lock picking as a hobby. Still I appreciate the fact that you are very patient and give a lot of information which proves your intellect.

    Thanks for making these videos for us.

  7. Silly question and sorry if you have already answered this one. but I am curious what kind of video camera you use? also where do you get those vast amount of video intros? I am curious as I looked one and all I could find was a few so so video intros that where very generic. Thank you ahead of time and keep up the good work. 

  8. Its amusing to me how i live in alaska and its 45 degrees with no snow on the ground. And you are freezing your locks off

  9. Great picking, video and locks Bill. I feel your pain on the weather, NY doesn't get hit as hard as VA but it's more than enough snow here. 

  10. Excellent picking bill.  You know, I do have to say that German Locks for the most part are really well made.  They are so much fun to pick!! Nice package from Adrian.  

  11. Adrian outdid himself :_) Love the EVVA cutaway,@Adrian where did you get the cutaway?
    And the other things are great.
    Bill is the ABUS you picked gutable or is it sealed? 

  12. I just wanted to say thanks for making these videos. I've always been interested in lock picking and your videos have inspired me to start collecting cheap locks and to pick up a cheap kit to learn with. Are there any lock trading communities I should look into? Is there a specific learner lock that will help with progression better than others?

  13. I feel for you Bill. I am sitting in my house looking out at beautiful blue skies and sunshine here in Kent in the UK.
    I picked my second ever lock last night. A worn old padlock that I had laying around. I can't describe the buzz that it gave me when the barrel slid around the lock popped open. Thanks for the inspiration. Onward now to harder things. I am starting to get a real feel for how the tension wrench works and what is too much pressure versus too little. Still not too sure about feedback from the pins though. The lock I opened yesterday morning had a lot of luck associated with it. I did do it twice though.
