Hi Folks

I'm so pleased to have found this group. I am very new to Lock Sport. I have Single pin picked 6 locks so far. Most of these from boot sales. I live in Horley Surrey. I spend hours watching the usual suspects on the youtubes!!

As with most people I went and brought a really Poo set of picks, china made I guess. However, I am about to spend £100 ish on picks. If any of you have any tips I would be sooooooo very grateful. I don't want to get it wrong again.

Really looking forward to chatting with you soon.

Kind regards

Jon

Welcome on board.

Personally i am a Sparrows fanboy. A lot of people in here will most likely advice you to buy a Law Lock set.

Tbh any if the bigger manafactures will do you good.

I Will advice you to post which set you are gonna buy though. Just so you dont buy a lot if things you dont need and might miss some essentials. You Can get a lot of picks for 100 pounds. And just a short hook, some good tensioners and some deep hooks Will get you far.

I'm new to picking, but not to making things and the lawlock picks I've got recently are nice bits of kit.
I've also had a lot of success modifying a cheap pick set. The difference that a bit of sanding makes is significant.

Hi and wellcome to the forum, the two sets mentioned above are both fine, but you do not need lots of picks to get started,have a good look and then get some advice on the forum, enjoy.

Buy the Law Lock Tools Valerian set, it will set you back 40 quid ( free shipping) and is very very complete.
It will literally last for years and has just about all the wrenches and picks you will need for those years.
