First day back on my normal work schedule. Got up a wee bit early to document that magical Bogota rake I talked about yesterday. I’m not kidding about wee bit. Or magical. Here’s a 31 second video of a 3 second 6 pin pick:
Since my goal is to learn the ins and outs and whys and hows of picking, I started reading my way through the MIT Guide to Lock Picking. Practiced my way through Chapter 8. It’s pretty basic stuff that I was already starting to do on my own, but it’s good to make sure I haven’t missed any fundamentals.
Randomly picked up my practice locks and felt my way through the pins to identify them. Aaron said it was too easy. It was today, but it’s not something I could have done with any degree of accuracy on Day 1.
My repinnable lock arrived today. I set the pins, then decided I’d be jumping too far ahead just trying to pick it. Going to work through the rest of the MIT Guide first.
Here’s my first custom set:
Yes, of course it’s in order.
