  1. Cheers Bosnianbill been 7 years since I looked at lockpicking decided to use the discount code and pick up a nice eagles nest set and hopefully have some cash left over to get a mrwizard's challange lock. Thanks for rekindling that passion.

  2. Nice job as always mate, that keyway looked super aggressive…lol. I have a lock down here in OZ ( I can't pick it ) that I am wondering if you have ever picked. I have trawled through all your vids and cant seem to see it. It is a "Lockwood Assa Abloy 334S45"…I am guessing the "S" stands for S/Steels pins ? I would also suggest being the high security lock that it is, that all 6 chambers will be pinned ? Any thoughts would be helpful mate….cheers, Ray.

  3. All of your videos are extremely informative, I've been considering getting into picking but do not have the gear yet so I'm doing as much research as I can, do you have any suggestions for cutting your own tools?

  4. Is there any truth to the presentation Skyler towns did at defcon about weaknesses with Medeco locks? He claims they can be opened in seconds with a modified screw driver, he also said there were other weaknesses. I have been discussing it wit ha locksmith friend of mine who is a big medeco fan and he claims its complete bullshit and that skyler townes wont repeat his procedure with a unmodified lock.

    However, I have read that there was a security bulletin sent to all medeco dealers about the weakness? Also, if it wasnt true, wouldnt they just sue Skyler townes and force him to take it down? (libel)?

    Bosnianbill do you have any info on this?

  5. Nice picking Bill. I wander how this double cylinders are assembled in factory because there are no visible plugs for the springs in the body and repining both sides seems impossible to me for a functioning lock. You can use a follower on one side but what do you do with the other ? I cant find any info on the techniques to do a repining without drilling holes in the body. Does anyone has an idea? Thanks.

  6. Hello Bill. I was watching out for a good motorcycle lockchainthing and stumbled upon you channel. awesom stuff.
    Do you know any good locks?
    Would be awesome. Thanks in advance. Greetings from germany.

  7. After watching your videos, I made a pick and tension wrench on a girder, took me 10 seconds to pick a master lock that had a lost key. First time I ever pick anything. Thanks.

  8. Thanks for your videos. I subscribed like yesterday and have already watched 20+ videos of yours. You inspired me so much to try this so I ordered "Kickstarter" from Sparrowlocks =)

  9. I have no aspirations of becoming either a locksmith or a thief, but I can't stop watching your videos, Mr. Bill. You are a magician! Subbed

  10. At work we sell a interesting masterlock combination lock called the speed dial. Apparently it's unable to be picked/decoded/hacked however you want to call it. It's a lvl 5 security rating and claims its unshimable. Furthermore the combination is apparently endless combination. I'd like to see what you make of one of these locks.

  11. been collecting locks for years and only just started trying to pick them. love your videos on here. i have a few locks i would love to send over to you to pick. have a rotorlock with a really weird keyway and others.

  12. Wierd to see something I had in my hands a few weeks ago in a Youtube video from the US 😀
    Hope you like them, nice to see you already picked the one I found the most interesting (Because of the shutter-like thingy).
    Are you going to do the smaller one on camera? I'd be really interested in seeing you pick that one too.

  13. Thank you for the heads up about the sale at Peterson. That just may be the thing I need to get my first set of picks. Great video, as always.

  14. I have a 5 Pin PAPAIZ F2S2 that I can't get in, I have owned it for almost 20 years and used it outside throughout winter months here in Canada. The Inox springs have never failed, a little bit of oil and shes good to go. Any Tips?

  15. Hi everyone I was wondering if anybody had any tips for me as a beginner, I got a pretty bad padlock that I'm working on picking, so any advice that would help? thanks guys
