Hi Pim, welcome to the forums. This place is one of the best on lockpicking, learning new skills and making friends.
We have a few members from the Netherlands, me included. Where are you about in The Netherlands?

As with all online forums there are some rules, you'll find these linked on the main page.
Just to keep safe. If you'd ask the wrong questions we'll get the wrong ideas. Some topics are better not discussed in public.
There is a lot of knowledge to be gained and topics to be explored. I hope you'll stick around.

Hi everybody.

Thanks for the warm welcome :-).

To answer some of your questions:
I come with good intentions. Got myself a Brockhage pickset last year for fun but immediately got addicted.
The picks I bent shortly after like most beginners, but the Brockhage rakes still work fine for me.
At the moment I own some Peterson, Southord, Sparrows and Multipick picks. The latter are my favorites.
Although I'm still a beginner I like proper tools. Tried one Chinese set but it was as good as the price I paid for it.

I collected some old euro cylinders that I play with like Winkhaus, Zeiss-Ikon and Pfaffenhain.

That's about it for now.

Welcome to the group mate. Ask as many questions as you like and post as many photos as you can. That video is a good headstart on how.

Best wishes,
