Hey all new member here from Australia. Stumbled across this forum the other day and seems like a great place to learn more about picking and meet some like minded people. Ive been picking for a few months now, recently got into pin making and ive been enjoying putting together challenge locks almost as much as picking them. Up to this point ive just been picking standard pin tumblers but ive just got the sparrows black flag dimples picks and ordered a couple of dimple locks and a HQ-Lock(basically a multilock clone) arriving soon. Looking forward to picking them.
Hope you all having a good day,
Jimbo

Splendid, great to see another dimple lock enthusiast. I think I prefer them to standard pinned locks, I don't know why.
