Hi guys,

New to the forum and lock picking. Going threw an early mid life crisis at 32... in the last year I’ve learned how to do random things like only shave with a cut throat. So i thought I’ll give lock picking ago as well. Always wanted to do it so why not give it ago. Bought a cheap set on amazon... don’t judge.. got the bug for it soon as I picked my first pad lock and wanted to explore more. Bought a few decent sets now and Raking seems to be my chosen method at the minute as single picking there’s an art to it that I appreciate and wish to learn as I’ve not yet got a back for it. I know a vice would help so just got one on order and to explore a decent forum is second and it’s in the uk... happy days!

:s_hi: and welc welc welc @R3con

Have a quick read of the rules and etiquette section (should stop any confusion later down the line).

Next it's up to you really.

I would suggest taking a good read of Solomons guide as this is the best guide on the web (imo) :read2: :08: :
No matter what your skill set it's always a good piece of reference material to keep going back to.

Yes,yes I know you have already, but it's part of my patter and tbh it looks good to the other mods that I'm bothering with this stuff :hee20hee20hee: :hee20hee20hee:

Then mooch around the site at your leasure :72:

There is plenty to see do and get involved in so don't be shy :08:

Take a look at Meme's thread on pick making,I'm sure you will enjoy this great read :88:


Also keep an eye out for the meet ups , as there maybe a few folk round your way :72: :08:

Lastly Have Fun,ask loads of questions as everyday is a school day here. :icon_study: :08: :clap:

This page may help some of the questions you may have.....


:GL: and :welc:
