We’re at the end of the month and I’m feeling lazy. I didn’t touch any locks, but I did watch this great video on spool pins. Thanks Mike for the link!
The washer really helped me visualize just how much force is really on the tension wrench (not much) when he’s picking. Especially when he actually had to lift up on the washer to reduce the force to see the rotation at one point. He’s got a really good video on making tension wrenches out of stainless steel kitchen knives he found at the dollar store, too. Turns out they are the perfect thickness for tension wrenches. Great news for when you’re wandering around the dollar store with your micrometer or calipers looking at kitchen utensils :-)
Cheapo kitchen knives, eh? Back to the dollar store this weekend!
