Marc 6

Being the 6th challenge lock in my portfolio, I decided to stray from the good quality base lock (like the previous Corbin, Wilka, Gege and Lockman) and use a medium low quality of cylinder, with average tolerances and Yale style keyway – although with no holes through the warding – and see if I could make it a fairly challenging lock.

Springy Bast3rd will test your patience and resolve, more than your skill.

Hand Filed Madness

My first challenge lock (finished Dec 13th 2020), I had no power tools to make it. So I worked day and night, like a madman, shaping a brass rod with nothing but a bolt cutter and some files. There’s no theme to the innards except for having been made using files. I did what the lock demanded. Have fun with the child of my hand filing madness.
