  1. hey bill. really really cool lock there, i think old yale locks are awesome. However i was wondering what your advice would be on cleaning old padlocks. i have some padlocks that have been outside and have all sorts of crap, old oil and dirt in them other than being full of crap there are no other issues with the locks to my knowledge. unfortunately they cannot be taken apart and cleaned. i would like to get them into a condition where they could be picked and for there keys to work relatively well. any advice would be great….thanks     

  2. I stumbled across your channel after watching a few of those Dateline locksmith scams show segments on U-tube. Thought that I could save myself a lot of money and some embarrassment of standing in front of my own home like a …well you know. So many great people like yourself using U-Tube to share such a plethora of information and incite into the everyday and the odd. It is great to see. Going to get a starter set of picks, maybe even a trainer lock. Who knows maybe I'll get bitten. Non Sibi, Sed Patriae.

  5. Very nice Yale push key. To bad it doesn't have an original key or a proper key. I have a book that shows how to tear these locks down and make keys for them. BTW Corbin also made a push key padlock
