  1. Hey Bill,
    I have a good idea. Whenever you successfully open a lock you should play a sound. Like when link opens a treasure chest in the Zelda games. It would be amazing, seriously consider I am sure everyone would love it.

  2. I'm just getting into lock picking as a hobby. I've got two padlocks here, a cheap chinese no brand which I can open in 3 seconds and a Squire LN60 which is proving too difficult for me at the moment. Any tips on how to attack the Squire?

  3. so i bought a southord pxs 14 and i managed to pick a few padlocks and a door with the tools that looks like a snake and the one that looks like a key but i cant pick neither a padlock or door with the normal pick tool any suggestions?

  4. I wish I could get real lockpicks where I live rather than having to go through all the trouble of getting a credit card or a Paypal and ordering something I can't truly see or touch over the internet, and then just hoping I like it. I tried making some rather ornate pieces out of copper, but while they looked both functional and attractive at first, they lasted me about 90% of one very tedious pick before I had to give up and hammer them out a second time… Still better than paperclips and hairpins, though.

  5. When is more really not more? I mean if you counter milled or threaded everything and threw a bunch of crazy looking pins at it, is it really that much harder? The pins all looks random to me, and you seem to get the majority of them in minutes!

    Wouldn't a better tactic be to make precision pins that will set/false set in a certain tricky order that when you have to counter rotate others keep falling down? Perhaps a lock that will start setting in more than one way but not fully so you have to start over a bunch?

    I'm a total beginner, with just a sparrows tuxedo set and a few master locks under my belt, so I don't know how the sport has progressed. Is there a tactical way to make pins so it's like playing chess or jenga to get it to open instead of just forcing it till it clicks?

    Thanks for the great videos!

  6. Thank's Bill but I don't remember sending you this Ruko (bad memory on my side if i did). In any case I did enjoyed the video, thank you for the great narration :)

  7. I can't send pm a from my phone but I have sent you 2 locks today a re pinned master 150 and a odd combo lock I found at a swap meet 

  8. I also sent you a ruko and it had the exact same scratch flaring out to the left from the letter "R". I took a picture after i picked it and appears to have all the same marks on it as the one you are picking.
