Awesome kw, I did the same but figured nah it wouldn't be on his homepage. I should learn not to overlook things so easily.

Thanks for the heads up on it though.

Regards,
mrboggles

Of course that would be great

You could post something here, or write it into an essay (preferably for beginners, because I am one ;D), whichever you prefer.. But it would of course be greatly appreciated.

Default Lockpicking

KW pointed me here,

here's what you should check about lock picking: The MIT Guide to Lock Picking. There's pdf translations in french and italian for what i know, use google. I've put some pictures of lock picking tools here. I'm sure one could do those tools by himself, but trust me, it's better to at least have seen one first. And forget hammering down nails, those tools are really thin, less than 0.25 millimeters. Try with the metal stem you find in windscreen wiper.

I found a nice place to buy books and equipment.. Includes tubular locks, muad.. They sell a book and lockpicks for that.. Might be something to look into? I'm considering buying the $35 set myself.. The really good ones are too expensive for something that I'm just looking to learn as a hobby, and the $15 one with book seems like a really bad kiddie version which will no doubt break within 2 days.
The page I'm talking about is http://www.selfdefenseproducts.com/lockpick.htm
Have a looksie, and give me some feedback (those of you that know which are good etc, coz I have no idea myself)

At the moment, I'm staring at the topmost set (book+picks = $14.95) since I'm a complete beginner.. But in the back of my head something's shouting "NOOooo DONT DO IT! IT'LL BREAK OR BEND OR JUST BE HORRIBLE TO WORK WITH, JUST GET SOMETHING DECENT RIGHT AWAY CAUSE YOU'LL WANT IT ANYWAY!"
Someone know anything more about this sorta thing? Would be appreciated...

Hey,

I think it is great you guys are all interested in this. I originally got into it when I read about lock picking in the original anarchists cookbook. I bought a lock picking set from

htp://www.devonlocks.com/cgi-bin/cart/section/2/

They are UK based but you might be able to persuade them to ship to the US if you can't find anything similar. The set I bought was the 15 piece slim line set, they are very good quality but I did find that I had a tendency to bend them early on. Due to my lack of skill at that stage I was applying too much pressure and damaging the picks, maybe this is something to consider. I am now able to pick 4 pin padlocks and getting there with 5 pin Yale locks. I am now looking at buying this:

htp://www.devonlocks.com/cgi-bin/cart/section/9/ (The Jack-knife)

Hopefully it should make things a lot faster :-)

Regarding tubular locks for coke machines and motorcycles, I once read that you can open these locks using quick drying clay from modelling shops. Basically you jam a load of clay into the lock and pull it out, let it dry for an hour or so and there you have your key. The plus side of this is that if you get caught you can drop the clay on the floor and stand on it, crushing it and destroying any evidence.

Thanks you very much for posting the information about creating master keys. I haven't read it yet but will do soon.

All the best.

KAOS
