Hi Guys,
As the title says, I am just another Fat bloke from Belfast, been picking for a good few months now, Started with the usual cheep Chinese pick set then progressed, I now have the Southord 1510 pick set and a collection of LawLockTools picks. I dont get enough time to practice my picking so I am still pretty crap at it, but hopefully I can improve my skills. Looking forward to interacting with you all here.

Hi mate,
:welc:
Take photos of the locks you have picked as you do them and post in the "what I picked today" thread.
That is probably the best way to get to know people here.

If you follow the vid all should be fine. I'm on a PC myself.

Have another watch of the vid and give it another try.

If it does'nt work let me know.
