Hi there,

New to the forum, but have been lock picking on and off for years, just for fun. Since I was a kid actually, when I used to pick tiny, novelty padlocks with paperclips (OK, I admit it - I still do!). Got my first cheap set of lock picks about 5 years ago and I have finally gotten around to ordering the Tuxedo Set from Sparrows (It's on it's way. I hate waiting...)

Locks fascinate (and frustrate) me. I have a small collection of padlocks and just generally learning as I go.

Hopefully see you around,

Luke.

I wish I had a "welcome template" like some of the others here, saying to read the rules etc. Just do as they say! :)

There's a wealth of information on this forum and if you can't find what you're after just ask. The only stupid question is one that isn't asked!

Don't be afraid of posting photos of locks you pick on the way as we all like pictures, no matter how easy they are to open. Everybody started somewhere and like seeing people progress. You don't have to pick a Medico to get a +1! In fact there's a whole thread on "What you didn't pick today"' :)

More than anything, have fun and keep it legal!


I think I've just written my first "welcome template"
