(442) Kerensky77’s Challenge Lock #1 (SCREWED!!! – really…)


LockLab is Fan funded!  Help pay for stuff to review, break and talk trash about, and maybe even give away when we’re done.  Join the Tribe!

My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. It wasn't the screw that messed it up. When you put the follower in you had rotated it so that there was a gap between the cylinder and the follower(2:24) thus creating the resistance you felt. Anyway, love your videos. Keep em' coming!

  2. I think that your follower got stuck because you put it in there the wrong way, anyway awesome lock.Far outside of my ability, but still awesome. 

  3. Excellent pick. Using a screw is a great idea. I love the internet. You are flippin awesome. Your promos are really really cool too!

  4. Bill,
    Wow awsome job again !

    Are your followers home made ? What sizes are used most? Whats the cut in the end for ? Can I make some out of common household items cheaply ?? Im just starting out in the picking hobby, dont wanna invest too much $$$ at this time.

  5. Hey Bill. With all due respect, it wasn't the screw that "screwed" you when you gutted that cylinder. At about 2:21 you decide to use the "medium follower" and you pick it up off your bench backwards. Then about 2:25 you can see that you put the end with the chunk taken out into the cylinder with the void right over the bible. I was yelling at my iPad, "Nooooooo!" But you didn't hear. That's why you got jammed, tho, you dropped the last driver and the follower hung on the spring. Better luck next time.

  6. Bill, just a suggestion, make up a follower with a protrusion to fit into the slot in the rear of the core ( plug ). It will fit just about all cores with a slot. Then a tiny chamfer right around on both ends of the follower – we use them like this at work, saves a lot of dropped top pins. Just my 2 cents worth.  Regards, Brian.

  7. Great picking again Billiam mate… Now they do look like Evil pins buddy, your man did a great job on them. Just a shame the HUGE companies could not take a leaf out of that book so to speak
