I am in the UK yes, I have very few friends and I'm not very good with people so I've always took up hobbies that are quiet and that I can do by myself plus I've always had a fascination with keys and locks so I suppose it's just the natural progression I suppose.

^-^ and welc welc welc @ Donn Ellis,


Have a quick read of the rules and etiquette section (should stop any confusion later down the line).
Next it's up to you really.


I would suggest taking a good read of Solomons guide as this is the best guide on the web (imo) :read2: :08: :
No matter what your skill set it's always a good piece of reference material to keep going back to.
https://www.uklocksport.co.uk/http://mi ... 2619#p2619


Yes this is an intro that most of the guys here have had from me over the year(s), yes I know you have completed at least one of the tasks (just can't be fussed altering it too much) :57: :sorry:

Anyway.........

Then mooch around the site at your leasure :72:

There is plenty to see do and get involved in so don't be shy :08:

Take a look at Meme's thread on pick making,I'm sure you will enjoy this great read :88:

Also keep an eye out for the meet ups , as there maybe a few folk round your way :72: :08:


Lastly Have Fun,ask loads of questions as everyday is a school day here. :icon_study: :08: :clap:

This page may help some of the questions you may have... https://www.uklocksport.co.uk/http://mi ... ic.php?t=7

:GL: and :welc: .
May the pick be with you
