Welcome to the forum :victory: You've definitely found a great place to be. Plenty of great people here willing to share, bounce ideas around or help out.

By way of some orientation, best to point out some important and useful bits to get your teeth into. First, if you haven't already, have a quick read over the Forum Rules. It's always amazing how many new people never get around to that bit :laughing7: It's quick and painless. I promise :laughing7:

We've also got a heap of great tips on using the functions you'll find throughout the forum right here for you to check out.

Then the juicy stuff ..... Check out our Library and Video sections. Huge amount of great stuff there.

And have a good mooch about with the Forum Search - that will definitely throw up a whole wealth of treasures.

If you haven't already, I highly recommend having several good reads of the legendary 'Solomon's Uber-Detailed Guide'. That will help to set you up sweet on some theory, and it's great fun! Also have a read through of 'A Summary of Lockpicking - A Better Understanding of the Practice of Non-destructive Entry'. That will also clarify a heap and stir up some questions, no doubt.

And of course, feel free to rattle that keyboard, ask questions, contribute or just shoot the breeze til yer fingers bleed, if necessary. Every day is a school day here. There's always something new or something forgotten.

Look forward to seeing you around.

Enjoy, enjoy :victory:

Howdy mate, welcome to UKLS. Have you bought any locks or picks yet?
Hello. Yes i have bought the "MTL mastering the lock" pick set online which was in one of bosnianbills videos. As second set i have bought some used china junk by ebay. I have 2 training locks made from BKS euro profile cylinders, one is a cutaway from multipick.
I although made my own wiper insert tensioners.
I own several GDR made euro profile BAB cylinders and GDR mailbox locks. Last month i have bought a set of 23 used german army padlocks burg and abus mainly.last week i have bought 8 abus lever locks. I will put all my stuff together and make a photo of them. So i hope you can give me some tips about my rquipment so far. Thank you.

Hello and welcome onboard, @UklsSG .
The BAB cylinders are close relatives to the Zeiss/Ikon/ZIkon and might prove a bit difficult in the beginning. You might want to acquire some ISEO F3 or Abus Buffo from your nearest Bauhaus or other DIY store. They are quite cheap and very talkative.

Excellent mate, it sounds like you're on the right track. There are plenty of guys on here who love the Burg Wachter and Abus locks.

Love to see a photo of the pickset and locks.

Hi guys,
i tried to upload a picture of my lockpicking equipment so far. 8 Abus lever locks are getting delivered next days.
My last puchase was the cheap china made lockpick gun, and i could not open no locks with it till now.

My next purchases will be a
pinning tweezer
lever lock pick similar to the one used by bosnianbill recently
lockdisassambly kit from HUK
dimple locks and dimple lock picks
tubular lock picks
prybars
waferlock picks...
and many more.

but i think first i need to improve my lock picking skills to an another level. My next aim is to pick all my padlocks and cylinders open which i own already.
Thank you guys for all your comments, suggestions and time.
