Improvised Tools

We're going to make some improvised tools out of (mostly) everyday stuff! Materials will be provided, but bringing your own never hurts. After we've had a chance to create tools, we'll play a game using the tools we've made.


Common note: As always, there is a beginner class at 6PM for 30 minutes if you have never picked.  Pick sets are available to borrow, and are for sale for $20, cash or charge. The annual membership fee is not required to attend meetups.

    OMG! I can not believe that I missed this event! I wanted to learn how to 3D print a new pick set or bumpkey. The third Thursday needs to be the 20-something...

    Hey everyone, thanks for the welcome and the good company tonight! I'm going to pick every lock in my house until I figure this stuff out.

      Thank You, John. Do you guys offering 3D class sometimes? Do you know where at Columbus area I can find that kind of classes? or where I can rent 3D printer for my project? or just make somebody do it for me? I will appreciate any information!

    Any suggestions as to material or tools to bring?

    • John S.

      Paperclips, thick piano wire, old wiper blades, etc. Pretty much anything smaller than your arm that's made of metal that can be cut, ground, or bent.
