Hi
I’m Duncan and have just got into lock-picking after coming across a YouTube video
I actually had an interest in it a long time ago but there weren’t forums and YouTube channels about it then
I’ve got myself a set of hooks and now I’m keen to get picking
I bought a couple of padlocks from B&Q this weekend one for about £3 which is way too easy and one for about £7 which is very hard, I’ve picked it twice but more luck than judgement I suspect.
I’m interested in what practice lock you guys would recommend. I’d like one that I could change the pins on myself.
I’ve not got any rakes yet as it seems like cheating to me but I’d be interested in a set if anyone has any they’d recommend.
Thanks
Duncan

No such thing as cheating, an open is an open.

Like yourself though, i very rarely rake anything.

Howdy Duncan, welc =)
It's not cheating as long as it's fun.. the fun part is the most important thing about picking I believe, or anything for that matter =)
