I was browsing through some random instructables not finding anything of much interest except ALL OF TETRANITRATES POSTS! boy man your my idol!
so neways i thought to myself "hmm not many good instructables on making professional lock picks" and so my very fist instructable was born.....
this instructable will outline some very good methods of making quite good lock picks that function surprisingly well.
Step 1: MATERIALS! AND OVERVIEW
2 hacksaw blades (ammount can vary)
assorted allan keys.
files (if you do not posses a bench grinder).
and if you dont have either a bench grinder or files at a very last resort you can use a angle grinder with metal disk (EXTREEMLY DANGEROUS)
Step 2: The Tension Wrench
good now that thats done, turn on you bench grinder or equivalent and grind down the short end of the allan key so that it has a long flat section that should fit in the keyhole of all the locks you test it on
1. when grinding keep a glass of cold water nearby so that you can dunk the hot end of the allan key to prevent it loosing its "temper" lol not the angry meaning.
2. wear some goggles the first time i did this i ended up with a hot metal flake in my eye which hurt alot and slowed down my pick making process.
3. just take general care and dont stick your fingers in anything moving in excess of 2,000 rpm.
