    Thanks for looking.

    That's very cool, Les. I'd never heard of Tim, but I see he's got a book available about making wooden locks. Great stuff.

    Very very neat. Glad you put the toonie in the picture it gives an idea of scale.

    I bet any locksmith with a store would love to have that on display. What a great talking point.

    Great work. That shackle is something.


    You know after I posted this reply I went back and looked at it again. Its a great piece of work in fact I would go so far as to call it art. You can look and look and look again. An just marvel at the whole thing.

    Any chance we could see a picture of the mechanism?
    cheers

    I don't have any photos of the tumblers.
