Hi I've been doing security checks and fitting locks for the last 8 years among other stuff (carpenter by trade) didnt really get in to opening locks until last February when my work place finally put me on a 4 day locksmith course but they didnt teach lock picking or how to get into higher security locks so started watching YouTube vids to teach myself and found locksport 6 pick sets later and I think just a hobby now lol

I've had a look at the rules already
No haven't had any help yet unless you count all the hours on YouTube that's where I've got most of what I know so far

How do :welc:

Something to remember when picking Americans, if you get a false set, it is probably open.

Just give it a bit more twist and double check, the spring on the core is quite strong.
