It is my pleasure to announce that Think|Haus will be hosting TOOOL (The Open Organisation of Lockpickers) meetings on the first Saturday of the month from 2pm-4pm. Our first meeting will be on Sat. Oct. 6th. Several of the Think|Haus members and friends have pick sets already, and we have the “lockpicking” locker full of old locks to practice with. On top of this, Deviant from TOOOL.us is sending us a care package of goodies 🙂 The meetings are open to everyone (ie: you do not need to be a member of the hackerspace to attend) so feel free to drop in and check it out! Since it’ll be our first meeting we’ll likely spend a bit of time on some basic tutorials and the rules. We can do some picking, bumping, jiggling and maybe even some impressioning (limited # of vices and magnifying lamps may not make this easy to accomodate until we are better equipped). Come by and check it out! There will be something for everyone! 🙂 For more information about The Open Organisation of Lockpickers check out the http://toool.us/ website. You can also sign up for our TOOOL mailing list over at http://lists.thinkhaus.org/listinfo.cgi/toool-discuss-thinkhaus.org to keep up with the latest news and announcements!
Edit 9/29/2012: For those who asked, we will have pick kits for sale at the meeting. The kits available will be the “Beginner’s Blend” set listed on the TOOOL.US website here: http://toool.us/equipment.html The cost will be $25 and unfortunately (for now) I’m only equipped to accept cash. Looking into electronic payment methods for future meetings.
