Hi guy's and gal's.

I have been picking a while now. Started with a cheap Chinese set then spent a bit of cash on the Dangerfield Praxis and serenity kits plus some TOK bars.

I look forward to contributing to the forum.

Nice one, :welc:

Make sure you post photos of your conquests, and ask around if you have any problems.
This place is so good for beginners - most of us came here just after starting out, and we have learnt just about all we know from chatting with more experienced pickers, taking part in pass around lock exchanges, competitions and watching each other's videos.

Enjoy !

I mostly pick pin tumblers. Rims Euro padlocks. Have tried and failed badly at dimple locks. But Mul-T-lock MT5 ain't the best to start on lol.

Hi there Gary, great to have you here. You sound like you know what you're doing so as has already been mentioned above, by far the best way to make friends and get into the life of the group is to post plenty - pics of picks and locks are always welcomed. The "What I picked today" and "What I received in the post" are the best places for lockporn...

Best wishes,

Michael Maynard.
