:s_hi:
Hi, from another newbie here, from Sussex UK.
Quite new to this fascinating hobby. I had always been fascinated by locks, since I was given a 'toy' safe when I was about 10, with a combination dial lock. Within minutes I soon found an obvious design flaw and could get it open in seconds, by turning while pulling on the dial - and that gave me quite a buzz!
I'm particularly a fan of padlocks.
Toolwise I have the lovely Southord C2010 set that I'm getting used to, plus an assortment of cheapo ebay ones :) Currently thinking about getting the Multipick TOK tension set...
The learning curve is quite intense but I enjoy it a lot, there's always much to learn, and I love a challenge!
Best wishes and see you around!
~Peter~

Welcome to the group mate. Dive in and ask plenty of dumb questions - it's by far the best way to learn.
