Just wanted to say hello to everyone on here. I have just started on the road to becoming a locksmith. I have always been interested in Locksport and have followed some people on Youtube but i have never had the opportunity to give it a go myself. I look forward to talking to you all in future.

^-^ and welc welc welc @ Mrmatt891,

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.

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
